Wearing a referee’s shirt and blowing a whistle as he walked out on stage, Bobby Knight poked fun at college basketball officials Monday night during an appearance on the “Tonight Show with Jeno Leno.”There's only one Bob Knight. My guess is ends up in a studio somewhere - perhaps with CBS during tourney time this year.
“There are fat guys that referee. There are slow guys that referee. I mean, some of them don’t see well. There are a lot of them that don’t even know what the rules are. What better job could you have than to be a referee?” said Knight, who won three national titles as head coach of the Indiana Hoosiers.
It’s dangerous work, Leno pointed out: “You could get hit with a chair or something.”
Here's the video:
I just thought of this. Forget Bob Knight being an announcer. Can you imagine Bob Knight actually being a referee?!? If he were mic'd up, that'd be "must-see".
