September 10, 2000 – The gloomy weather in Bloomington, Ind. on that fall day could have been considered a bad omen. Every Hoosier’s worst nightmare was occurring in the swampy marsh of Dunn Meadow. Robert Montgomery Knight, the General, was giving his farewell speech to a group of angst-ridden and drenched student protesters. He did it in classic Bobby Knight fashion, but the day was far too sad to ponder such a triviality. What was to become of Indiana University basketball?
This was our nightmare.
