08:22 AM ET 11.22 | Against Texas Tech, the Liberty Flames held a nine-point lead at the 16:24 mark of the first half, and while the Red Raiders recovered to win, Pat Knight wasn't happy as the first half ended. After the buzzer, Knight stormed onto the court to coach his players and then, based on body language, ordered his players to run to the locker room. He even pushed the last straggler in the tunnel along with him as he headed to the locker room to coach them up.

I was about to do the "Let me guess, Bobby's son?" routine, but that's been answered. That one player is in utter shock!

Screaming does not equal coaching.

All it does is make you hoarse and most of the players don't listen anyway if you do it all the time.

Maybe "Bobby Junior" could borrow Mike Leach's storage shed.

Tyranny breeds tyranny. College players today (AND their parents) are not tolerant of abusive behavior by coaches. Pat Knight better be careful.

Agree 100%...especially at Tech...see Leach. Times have changed (for the better, worse or indifferent) and you have to change with them. Today's "helicopter" parents do not even want you correcting their children in a decent manner. They damn sure won't tolerate correction and admonishment in an abusive manner.

I agree. Erin's body is great. She has really toned down on the tight sweaters and such on GameDay, though. Does she think people want her on that show for her brilliant insights?

Please stop comparing Pat to Bob. Bob could at least coach, and win, and win championships. Pat is an idiot. Bob had anger issues, but he was also a pretty smart guy. So stop the insanity by stopping the comparisons.
