There are a couple insightful paragraphs in today's paper in an article by Berry Tramel entitled "Why Does Bobby Knight Get So Angry?" The second theory [of why he gets so mad] is sanctimony. That's the one I buy. Bob Knight's teams play the game the way it ought to be played, and he runs a clean program, and by gosh, he believes he's right, whether you're talking fly fishing or military history. Trouble is, righteousness is a burden. You can see it in political parties and in pulpits. Folks who believe they have the corner on honor and justice can be driven bonkers by those who see the world a little less black and white.
