The Sampson Situation
At the risk of turning this column into something of a whining, complaint section of the recent controversies in sports today, I would like to address the Kelvin Sampson Situation at Indiana University.
Let me first begin with, I grew-up loving two basketball programs, University of Kentucky and Indiana University. I am originally from St. Louis, Missouri, so this may sound weird. Let me clarifiy. Growing up in Missouri, and having a grandfather that played football at Mizzou, it was instilled in me to dislike Kansas University to the core of my body. Mizzou never had that great of a basketball program under Norm Stewart, but every now and again Norm would crank up the boys and pull one out from under Roy Williams. There were two schools that seemed to have Roy's number back in the day. Rick Pitino at UK and Bob Knight at IU. Thus, the love affair with UK and IU.
