The auction, which has already started for some items, runs through Dec. 5 and will feature Knight's rings from his three NCAA championship teams at Indiana: the undefeated 1976 season and the ones from 1981 and 1987.
The company will also sell a sports coat and a warmup jacket given to Knight as coach of the gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic team in 1984.
''I've got stuff I didn't even know I had,'' Knight said. ''I don't put anything up in the house. If you came into the house you would think I was a mailman. And I don't even wear rings.''
''Sports people are nuts,'' Knight said with a laugh. ''Look at how much they would they pay for Babe Ruth's cap or Honus Wagner's card? I guess these are people who want to own things, things that are the results of what someone else did in sports. I was very pleased there was a market for something like this that my grandkids — I have two grandsons — and my wife has a niece and nephew, who would get good use out of this.''
You'd think Bobby Knight could edumacate his grandchildren and not have to give up his gold medal, no?
