Bob Knight To OU: Now You Know How It Feels

Leave it to Texas Tech basketball coach Bob Knight to put the University of Oklahoma's controversial football loss to Oregon last Saturday into perspective. He's never one to pass up a jab against a rival.

Oregon scored a couple of late touchdowns to beat Oklahoma 34-33. Those touchdowns were aided by a couple of bad calls by the officials, which weren't overturned by replay officials. In response, O-U President Dave Boren called for the suspension of the officials involved for the rest of the season, and for the game itself to be wiped from the record books.

Knight remembers a game a few years ago in which his Red Raiders lost at Oklahoma as the result of similarly bad calls. At the time, Knight called for the Sooners to forfeit the game.

"Maybe now those people at Oklahoma understand what I was talking about," Knight said recently to The Oklahoman newspaper in Oklahoma City. "Now I guess the 'duck' is swimming in the other pond."
