Story at ESPN.
I definitely had high hopes that The General would come back for this honor, and at first was pretty upset that he was turning it down despite the fact that nobody who sent him packing is still in power at the University, unless they're a trustee.
But I guess his reasoning, that it would be a big news story and detract from the other honorees, one of which is his longtime friend and fellow legend Jerry Yeagley (he coached the IU soccer team to six national championships, I believe), is pretty legit.
Still, I would love to see a reconciliation between Knight and Indiana sometime down the road. It's too bad it won't be this year.
