    I suggested to my friend today (an Auburn fan) that they forego their search for a new coach and secretly fly into New Orleans, then drive into Baton Rouge for a covert meeting with Brady to hire him as their new coach. I assured him that this event would save AU numberous exhaustible weeks looking for that "perfect hire". When further questioned, I informed him it would be no burden for us to take over this task of searching for a replacement for our dearly departed "coach". I don't think he bought into it.

    What, no picture of Knight breaking the phone? At least that would be LSU related.

    (That game still makes me mad!)

    If comparing Brady to Knight is your way of backing him I think you just lost your argument. Knight should've been banished from College Basketball 20 years ago for his antics.

    WHAT?

    ARE YOU SERIOUS?

    Who says he has to be nice to the media? He is a basketball coach, and the majority of his run ins are with the media. Bottom line is Knight wins, his players graduate, and he is very successful at what he does and is very well respected amongst his peers.

    You think it is all nice and sweet at a Saban practice? Give me a break. Athletics are intense, success is bred through coaches dedicated to what they do, coaches who are intense. If you have ever played athletics on a good team, you probably had an intense coach you despised while playing for him, but you will never forget him and you place a great deal of your personal growth as a person to his credit. Bob Knight is a person like this. Nick Saban is a person like this.

    Brady is NOT a person like this!

    It blows my mind that people hate Bobby Knight so much - how can any intelligent human being argue against 3 National Championships, a Gold Medal, 3rd most wins in history, one of the highest graduation rates in all of major college sports and ZERO NCAA VIOLATIONS - HE'S NEVER EVEN HAD AN INVESTIGATION IF I'M NOT MISTAKEN -this country is getting softer and softer if a coach on the college level is not a great coach because he refuses to be a media darling and he yells at players... Give me a break.

    Yep, I'm quite certain Saban does the following:

    chokes his players during practice...

    kicks them on the sideline during a game...

    tosses whatever he can find onto the field to protest a ref's call...

    curses out Emmert in a public restaurant...

    But hey, as long as Saban wins, he can mistreat people all he wants, huh?

    Knight is a great role model for our kids!
