    Knight reprimanded for comment about officiating
    LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) — The Big 12 has issued a public reprimand of Texas Tech coach Bob Knight for his comments about officiating in a double overtime loss at Oklahoma State.
    After Saturday’s 93-91 defeat, Knight said a call on a charge was “horrendous” and “maybe as bad a call as I’ve ever seen.”
    Knight’s statement violated the Big 12’s principle and standards of sportsmanship, which prohibit coaches from commenting critically in public about officials, according to the Big 12. The rule “goes for coaches, players, administrators, everyone,” Big 12 spokesman Rob Carolla said Thursday.
    Knight had no comment on the reprimand, Tech spokesman Randy Farley said.
    Carolla said the conference rarely issues public reprimands during the season. The reprimand was issued Wednesday.

    A public reprimand? Boy, that will teach him!

    But if a reprimand is inevitable, you might as well relax and enjoy it.

    Do what the Big Sky does - suspend him for a game.

    A FB coach was suspended for saying he disagreed with a call and from where he was, it didn't look like a penalty.

    Bobby would just whine more, though.
