See, now I have a degree from Indiana University. I spent my entire childhood around IU basketball games. I have good friends that are boosters and such. People who have been around IU basketball for a long time. I can tell you from stories and even firsthand accounts that the public has the image of Bobby Knight all wrong. Again, you are going off of and you based your opinion off of what you've seen on TV. Bobby Knight was a coach who showed his players tough love. He made sure all of his kids graduated. All of his former players have nothing but admiration and love for the man. Most say he is the most instrumental reason for making them who they are today. Even Coach K admits he would not be where he is today without Bobby Knight. I'd suggest you stop making comments that have no truth to them. I would love my kid to model after Bobby Knight. The guy came from nothing, and was successful everywhere he went because he worked hard and taught his players life lessons.
BTW, I was watching the European Tour Dubai World Championship earlier and I saw the following players drop their clubs after a bad shot: Luke Donald, Ian Poulter, Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia, Paul Lawrie, Alvaro Quiros, Peter Hanson, etc.
I find the club slamming and dropping unsportsman-like. But then maybe I've just given away my age!! However, I did laugh during the Chevron when Tiger hit a poor shot, he slammed his club and it popped up and hit him on the head! First I laughed then yelled at him, "served ya' right don't do that again!".....
Two and three year olds have tantums.....adults deal with frustration appropriately (hopefully!)
LOL......did you learn your lesson (club dropping has painful consequences!!)
PS....I have always felt that pre-autographed programs, hats, flag replicas should be available for purchase at tournaments!
SCHLICK........I've had the pleasure of watching (in person)Tiger play 3 times since he has not been winning! Sorry to tell you this but Tiger DOES sign MANY autographs but the MEDIA doesn't cover it.....hmmm, I wonder why? So they can create a story and pile on like they have for the past 3 years?
I wonder why it is you don't pay attention to the other players and count how many times they drop their clubs......I have a prediction, you want to see an angry golfer pay attention to Charl Schwartzel. Now their is an angry golfer who came out of nowhere while there was this 2 year haitus. What about the many including Schwartzel and Gary Woodland who walk right on by the fans without looking up to register their official scores? Heck, they rarely even tip their hats when they make a great approach shot or putt!
I'm curious, did you notice Tiger take his hat off at the Chevron and tip it to the entire crowd - full circle? Always looking for the negatives and FYI, it is common for pros and amatuers alike to drop their club after a bad shot or a hand slips loose.
TTF's......got a feeling we have a visitor!
