University is more than basketball team

I am an Indiana native and IU alumnus. I am also a long-time admirer and supporter of Coach Knight. However, I have also spent the last year on the Cornell University campus as a graduate student. Over the past six months, I've come to realize the perception that others in the academic community have for our great school. Unfortunately, it is not flattering.\nI am saddened to see how the students reacted to the news of Coach Knight's firing. It has made an unfortunate situation worse. My guess is that their actions will strengthen others' already negative views of our community. Please think about the implications of current events and act in a way that is in the best long-term interest of our University as well as our basketball program. Indiana University is so much more than a basketball team ... please act like it.
