1. Going to leave a somewhat mixed legacy, elleng.
RIP, Myles. Nonetheless, a very interesting man.

2. Yes, he will, Con.
I became fond of him when my older daughter was looking for a college. We visited IU, and it became my favorite!

She ended up elsewhere, but when I learned of Brand's NCAA job, I wrote to him about my disappointment that he wouldn't be there, as I thought highly of his philosophy/poet attributes, and having done so much for IU. He wrote back, thanking me, and wishing daughter luck.

I understand their upset about Knight. Can't stand him! (LOVE John Thompson at Gtwn!)

3. I'm not a fan of Knight, elleng.
That whole episode with that punk...just a bad deal. By that time they were looking for an excuse to fire his ass. Just lame.
