THOSE WHO thought Bob Knight was mellowing at 67 should head over to The Dallas Morning News website (www.dallasnews.com). In October the Texas Tech basketball coach was twice accused of being part of dove hunting parties that fired pellets that hit bystanders. The paper snagged video of an encounter between Knight and the second accuser, James Simpson, who claimed that shotgun pellets landed in his yard and hit him in the back. Simpson videotaped the argument, in which Knight refuses to stop hunting so close to his house because—get this—Simpson cursed at Knight instead of asking him nicely to stop shooting at him. Police say they won't file criminal charges, and Knight said Simpson's assertion that the incident was intentional was "absolute [expletive]."
