University mishandled Knight situation

IU has lost a legendary teacher and coach. It saddens me that the trustees have taken the word of a rude freshman barely on campus for three weeks over that of the man who has faithfully carried the torch for IU for almost 30 years. I, like many others, have encountered Coach Knight in the bowels of Assembly Hall, or in some other public place, and he was, in a word, a gentleman. \nGood luck to the next coach. I hope that he is as honest and insightful as Coach Knight has been. For his sake, I hope that the graduation rates stay high, the program stays clean, the winning percentage remains the highest in the Big Ten and the championships are plentiful, otherwise history may repeat itself. \nThank you Coach Knight for all that you have done for the school I love.
