If everyone had him on ignore, nobody would have to correct anything.
"But, first, let us now praise famous moments, because something happened Tuesday night in Indianapolis that you can watch a lifetime’s worth of professional basketball and never see again. There was a brief, and very decisive, and altogether unprecedented, outburst of genuine officiating, and it was directed at the best player in the world, and that, my dear young person, simply is not done."
Purdue fans who can count to two can keep track of all of the final four appearances in the history of their program (1969, 1980).
Their men's program, that is. They often have a respectable women's program.
The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
I completely agree with you about the NCAA rules. The problem is your appraoch (as it was with the Colts as well).
Also, I have to unfortunately disagree with you about older folks only seeing what is right in the world, if that was the case we would probably all be in a better place right now seeing as who has the power, but c'est la vie.
Wow. Insulting a moderator. Of course from a purdue fan.
Sorry to the people who don't want to see him quoted, but his misinformation throughout the thread is too easily correctable to let stand.
But if he was leaving because Knight wasn't the coach, then why didn't he leave in 2000 after Knight got fired? Why did he play a season under Davis, in which the team basically had identical success to Knight's final team a year before? I agree with you that he was obviously very fond of Knight. Knight recruited him, coached him for two seasons, and supported him during an awful personal tragedy. Clearly he was close to Knight and I'm sure he preferred him over Davis. But I just don't think that's why he left. He saw that he was going to be a mid first rounder and that his draft stock would likely never be higher. He had the opportunity to cash in and make some money for himself and family after a brutal personal tragedy. Certainly can't blame the guy.
Haston's most memorable college moment came under Davis.
Yep. The memorable buzzer beater against MSU.
Heck, his best season was clearly the 2000-01 season under Davis. That's not even debatable:
Davis has been villified to such a point where it is kind of ridiculous. The guy wasn't great by any means, but he wasn't really any worse than Knight's last few years here.
In retrospect Davis shouldnt have been fired but if i had to choose him or sampson Davis wins 10 out of 10 times
