He already tried to pull this off on air last week, but Bob Knight is doing everything he can to not be called a member of the media. He's even given himself a title for those in the real media to call him....
"Here's how I handle that: I just simply say I am a media consultant," Knight said of his ESPN gig talking basketball with Digger Phelps and Jay Bilas -- a job for which he has been outfitted with a rainbow of sweaters with the ESPN logo.Interesting title isn't it? And while I agree with him on the suit and tie thing, I can already tell that I'm tired of his schtick. But that's just me....hopefully his analysis will outweigh his personality this week.
"I told 'em, 'I'm not going to wear a coat and tie. If you want me to do this, that's the first condition.' This is sports. It isn't the Supreme Court."
