At a fundraiser for the Indiana University Hall of Fame, Bob Knight spoke on a variety of subjects, but in a story by Associated Press writer Mike Marot, he leveled this criticism at University of Kentucky coach John Calipari.
“We’ve gotten into this situation where integrity is really lacking and that’s why I’m glad I’m not coaching,” he said. “You see we’ve got a coach at Kentucky who put two schools on probation and he’s still coaching. I really don’t understand that.”
It’s not the first time Knight has weighed in on questions about UK. I remember an interview he did with Cawood Ledford once in which he was asked how much the rivalry with UK meant to him, and he responded, and I’m paraphrasing — after some of the stuff that has gone on at UK, it means less to me than you might think.
