Coach Knight, IU’s Hall is Calling

KnightIU will announce on Saturday that former basketball coach Bob Knight is among seven that will be inducted into the Indiana University Hall of Fame in November. Others include Steve Downing, Jerry Yeagley, Katrin Koch, Alan Somers, Joe Norman and the late Mike Rabold. While it’s a great honor for most, the big question will be, will Coach Knight show up? “I hope so,” said athletic director Fred Glass.  Glass added, “He’s been invited, and clearly, we hope he comes, but there’s no condition on selection of induction,” Glass said. “Before this year, a person or a person’s family had to accept the honor to be inducted, and while I understand the thinking behind that, my view was it was well intended but misguided because it put a condition that people had to come back.”
