Bobby Knight Drops Lawsuit Against IU: In an update to this earlier post, Bobby Knight has decided to forego any further appeals in his breach of contract lawsuit against Indiana.

I agree the former player quoted in the article in hoping that the end of the lawsuit will lead Indiana and Knight down a path of reconciliation. Knight excelled as coach of the Hoosiers for 29 years, including several national championships and the last perfect season in men's basketball (1976). I, for one, would like to see them both put their differences aside, a la Jerry Jones and Tom Landry in Dallas, and see the great coach honored for his years of service to the school. While Knight has been known to be in some lengthy feuds, including one of nearly ten years with Duke's Mike Krzyzewski, perhaps the 30th anniversary of that perfect season in a few years will provide the opportunity for the coach so many Hoosier fans loved to return to Bloomington for a proper send-off.
