The NDSU and Texas Tech men’s basketball game is over. Bison put up a good fight losing 85-81. The entertainment for me came later.
I’m typing this so we can all assume I still have my hands. The General stomped on my question concerning Texas Tech star Jarrius Jackson like a steel-toe boot on an ant, but then Bob Knight has been known to do that.
Me: What was NDSU doing to hinder Jackson in …
General: "Jackson didn’t play well period. They did a good job on Jackson."
The General went into his respect for Bo Schembechler, who died earlier in the day. He talked about former Ohio State coach Fred Taylor. Later, another reporter presumably doing a story on Duke Coach K and Knight asked two questions about their relationship. After his third question, Knight said, "What are you doing, writing a gaw dam novel?" The reporter went into a reported strained relationship between Knight and Coach K in the past, which was the fuel for the General.
"Do you want me to go over all the erroneous reportering I’ve seen in my lifetime? All the screwups you guys make? The inaccurate stuff you write about? The things you write that are non-sensical? Do you have time to hear all of that?"
He then exited the room still rambling. It was classic.
