Game changer? Bobby Knight to campaign with Trump in Indiana

Source: USA Today

Legendary basketball coach Bobby Knight is slated to appear with Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump at a rally in Indiana this week, the Trump campaign announced Monday.

While Knight has not commented on a potential endorsement, his support for Trump has been known for months. During a New York Times interview last fall, Knight called Trump and said over speakerphone: ďNo one has accomplished more than Mr. Trump has.Ē And Trump hinted Saturday that the coach who once famously threw a chair across the court would be campaigning for him in Indiana.

The announcement Monday just makes it official. Trump and Knight will appear at Indiana Farmers Coliseum in Indianapolis Wednesday evening, the campaign said.

Knight could provide a boost to Trumpís campaign heading into the Indiana primary next Tuesday. The RealClearPolitics polling average shows Trump leading Cruz 39.3%-33% in the state, but itís unclear if a pact between Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich puts that margin in jeopardy. Kasich, who currently has 19.3% in the polling average, had said that he would cede Indiana to Cruz (although he told voters there Monday to vote for him).

5. I live in Indiana and no Bobby is no longer "bigger" than

 

Jesus.
Bobby Knight was on a speaking tour a couple years ago and people got pretty bored with him and his "all about me"
theme.

Some expect the second coming of Bobby but it ain't gonna happen..
If Bobby Knight is this damn dumb to campaign for and endorse Donald Trump than Bobby Knight has truly lost it.

...they're made for each other. I suppose if campaign staffers get out of line, the chairslinger will slap them around like he did his former players.
