Former Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight introduced Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump at a rally in Michigan on Monday night.
But the staunch supporter of Trump’s didn’t exactly warm up the crowd in positive fashion. Knight actually drew boos after stating that he went to Ohio State as an undergrad, prompting him to take a shot back at Wolverines fans.
“I knew you’d give me that, but you know we beat your ass most every time we played you,” Knight said, according to Politico’s Louis Nelson.
Knight also talked about how much he loved beating Michigan as a coach at Indiana, according to Correct The Record.

Knight recorded a 4-0 record as a player and a 37-21 mark as a coach against Michigan, according to MLive.com’s Brendan F. Quinn.
Politico reported that Knight transitioned to a more “friendlier footing with the Michigan spectators.” But that doesn’t necessarily mean Michigan fans will forget.
Knight won three national championships as the head coach of Indiana and ranks second in wins among Division I men’s basketball coaches with 902. But, as he displayed on Monday at Trump’s rally, he’s also known just as much for his fiery persona.
