New Bob Knight Book Reveals He Squeeze Players' Testicles, Punch Players
Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports
Former Indiana basketball player Todd Hadlow, who played for former head coach Bob Knight from 1985-89, has written a book alleging that Knight punched him in the head and squeezed his testicles, as well as other players', along with other weird and abusive incidences. Per Bob Kravitz of WTHR-13 in Indianapolis...
quote:

In the book, Jadlow: On the Rebound, Jadlow alleges:

That Knight punched him in the back of the head with a closed fist during a walkthrough for an NCAA Tournament game against Seton Hall.

That inside a sideline huddle during a 1989 game against Louisville – the game when Sports Illustrated famously captured a photo of the coach pushing Jadlow back onto the court — Knight cracked a clipboard over Jadlow’s head.

That after an NIT game in New York City, an enraged Knight once dug his hands so deeply into Jadlow’s sides, he left bruises. Jadlow includes a picture of the bruises Knight left; “It’s weird because I never carried a camera,” he was telling me Friday over a Stromboli at Nick’s. “But I had this thought, ‘You know, if I ever write a book about my experiences, I want to have a picture of what he did to me.’ “
That Knight made a habit, with Jadlow and others, of grabbing players by the testicles and squeezing.

That Knight continually called Daryl Thomas a “(bleeping) p—–” and once instructed the managers to wallpaper Thomas’ locker with pictures of female genitalia. Knight also liked to throw tampons at Thomas, who took more abuse than anybody on Jadlow’s teams.

That on the flight home after the 1986 NCAA Tournament loss to Cleveland State, Knight tore up the plane and ultimately grabbed Thomas by the neck and shook him violently.

That Knight made sport of Jadlow’s facial tic in front of the entire team; in the book, former IU teammate Mark Robinson wrote that Knight yelled at Jadlow, “If you don’t stop the (bleeping) twitching, I’m going to throw your arse out of here.”

That during a practice, Knight forced Dean Garrett and Keith Smart to run hours of sprints while barking like dogs since they were, in his words, “playing like (bleeping) dogs.”

And that, Jadlow said recently, was just a partial accounting of Knight’s excesses.

“If he did those things today,” Jadlow said, “he (Knight) would be in jail.”

been an over-rated A-hole his whole life. Talent on that unbeaten Indiana team build his rep and he lived on it forever. Massive douche who yelled at a group of us at an 8th grade bball camp about "composure and respect", yet we never saw any of that from him then or later. Can't stand that jerk.
