08:15 AM ET 10.19 | There are probably critics of the man who were waiting for such news. Bob Knight, a frequent critic of the NCAA, appears to have run afoul of its rules while helping his son Pat recruit two Indianapolis players to Lamar University in Beaumont, Texas. The Star on Friday published a story about Manual High School's Jason Smith and Northwest's Donnell Minton committing to play at Lamar, where Pat Knight is in his first season as head coach. Minton and Smith said they talked with Bob Knight for about five minutes each on the phone during recruiting. NCAA rules generally prohibit anyone other than basketball staff members from recruiting.

who cares. Oh wait. Small school, minor infraction. Lamar is scruewed. NCAA death penalty. Idiots.

Exactly. DP for sure at Lamar but let tOSU, the U, etal escape with a slap on the hand.

This looks like a big violation. But Auburn, winning a BCS Championship with a purchased QB and Heisman winner, no problem. The NCAA is a joke and should be abolished.

Jerry Tarkanian had it right when he said, "The NCAA got so mad at Kentucky that they added two more years of probation onto Cleveland State."

Maybe Bob's trying to get "tossed" from all things NCAA so he doesn't have to do games with Dooshberger anymore....

To Bob, there are no rules, just a set of vague guidelines...

A story about The Unmedicated One violating rules? How is this a story?

Since Calipari was hired at Kentucky, Bob Knight has been very outspoken calling Calipari a cheater many many times. Karma's a b****! It turns out that Knight is a cheater too!

Since Calipari was hired as the coach for Kentucky, Knight has been very outspoken criticizing UK and Knight as cheaters. Karma's a b****!
