    Anyone who ever tried out for a team should derive some satisfaction from tuning in to the show.
  2. A sports tryout is an interesting ritual and Bobby Knight is an interesting character. But like a good basketball team, a riveting reality show doesn't come together overnight.
  3. Almost immediately you can tell it's a kind of fantasy camp for "Sports Center" junkies.

    "Knight School"... offers an unusual opportunity to see a coaching legend in his native habitat, but watching him work ultimately leaves a sour aftertaste.
