nobody said he couldn't coach.: texas tech (15-3) rips the number six rated oklahoma sooners at home, 92-79, avenging a blowout loss in norman two weeks ago. bobby knight has turned the red raiders into winners. can he keep it together and make lubbock, texas a perennial college hoops powerhouse?

You're right. No one ever said he couldn't coach. But he's still in the honey moon period, and unless he's made some serious changes, which I doubt, it's only a matter of time till he starts throwing chairs.

Agreed with justgary. Knight is a brilliant Xs and Os coach, but he'll wear thin with his players eventually, especially once (if) the losing starts this year. He'll be at TT long enough to take the all time win streak from Dean; not a season more and not a season less.

I don't think he will make it that far, something is bound to give. But will he stay at TT, if a more prestigous job comes along?
