College basketball, above all else, is a coach's game. Players come and go, coaches remain. Coaches get most of the attention. They get the big money. They get the television shows. They get the sneaker contracts. They get the made-for-TV reputations. And many are getting out of control. "If you look at the sidelines, it seems like coaches are out of control, and 15 percent of the time, I think, they may be," said Lou Bonder, supervisor of officials for the Atlantic 10. "I've said for a long time that I think we should be restricted a whole lot more on the sidelines than we are," Arizona coach Lute Olson said.

BOBBY KNIGHT apparently doesn't realize that people actually listen to what he says. Yesterday, the former college basketball coach railed against the NBA in an appearance on ESPN radio's "Mike and Mike" show. And he used a poor choice of words when asked about Duke's Jabari Parker and Kansas' Andew Wiggins, freshmen who are headed to the NBA despite subpar performances in the NCAA Tournament. "If I were involved with the NBA I wouldn't want a 19-year-old or a 20-year-old kid, to bring into all the travel and all the problems that exist in the NBA," Knight said.
