Other programs just as deserving of attention

Call me crazy. I thought I came to Indiana University to get a first-class education. But in all my four years here, I have yet to see our first-rate music school get the kind of attention that the basketball program does. And that's sad. It just goes to show that we respect a man like Bobby Knight ' a man who would be reviled as a bully in any other field ' just because he can tell boys how to throw a basketball. \nI was on campus (Sunday) when the students were rioting, and, quite frankly, I was frightened. I was frightened for myself and for our university, which deserves to be known for its wonderful programs, not this sad incident. I hope someday when I tell people I go to IU they will ask me something other than "What do you think of Bobby?" I don't. And now, thank God, I don't have to anymore.
