I don't like to talk about kids-becoming-athletes on this blog -- this is about kids-becoming-fans.
But there is an age-old question that is a bit of a litmus test for a sports-minded parent:
Would you let your kid play for Bobby Knight?
In my experience, there are two opposing camps: (1) Absolutely vs. (2) Never. There is rarely a middle-ground.
Assuming your kid will never be good enough to play basketball for Bobby Knight (or at any college level, for that matter), it is still an interesting discussion point:
If your kid WAS good enough to play for Knight, would you even want them to? Look forward to hearing your comments on this.
