Kelvin Sampson/Indiana

Recommended Posts

Scott M

KFAN was reporting that sources were saying Kelvin Sampson was fired.

I don't see how a guy gets hired and there are investigations into phone calls and then a year and a half later he's still doing it! He knows the rules. I think Indiana will can him in the next two weeks...they don't want to chance messing with their mojo and tournament chances. They want to win bad at Indiana, but not bad enough to cheat.

Sampson's a real piece of work the way it sounds. Good coach but apparently real arrogant or real stupid, not sure which. The consensus at our coffee table caucus earlier in the week was that he's toast. You're a basketball guru; what do you think the chances are that The General, after spending time in exile at Texas Tech, could return now that the guy who fired him is no longer there?

Bobby could easily return...he could be governor in Indiana.

Sampson is toast...he may have to resign just so this is taken care of sooner. He will be suspended and he definately coached his last game.

Indiana doesn't want to step on the NCAA's toes but want to rid the University of him...

Guru? sick.gif Far from it.

You're lobbing a softball here. Myles Brand ran him out and as Executive Director of the NCAA will advise against Knight going to any big program. There's a reason Knight was relegated to basketball purgatory in Lubbock and there won't be many takers for a guy his age and with his reputation. I think Knight may get another chance to coach again but at a small school. Guys that make mistakes but have huge amounts of history (Huggins, Sutton, and Knight for example) generally have to get back on their feet at small schools so it definately will take some time. If I'm Bob Knight it's not worth my time. I'd rather stay retired and only make the news when I hit someone with a load of 6 shot.

Knight stepped down what a day or two before the Sampson allegations came out. Coincidence?

It would be great for Indiana and great for college basketball if the General was brought back to where he belongs, coaching "Big Red". Personally I would love to see it and it would be a heck of a story.

There is something seriously wrong in this world when you can't just flat out fire a crooked bum like this. Why in the world does he get $750,000 to go away???????!!!!!!!

As an aside, I mentioned to my partner in the office on Monday that I thought Bobby Knight got wind of this from an old buddy/booster and made himself available. He didn't think so, but I still do...

      Thanks for the up dates, we were going to come up today to find a different spot to park but have to work. Weather is supposed to be good. Hope to get on the board too.

      I don't know, not getting your mail delivered to your door is a very egregious situation.  He also has a great sense of history indicating he has vision.  Letting us know he erected his sign in 2008 provides a vivid example of his powers.  He sees the future well...he gonna be pissed at somethin!  A bit of a Nostradamus.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.
