Noted Kentucky Hater Bobby Knight Threw Up 3-Goggles With Wildcats Fans

Most Kentucky fans would probably admit they are not fond of Indiana basketball, or its legendary former head coach Bob Knight. Knight hasn't exactly appeared friendly toward the 'Cats in recent years either. In fact, he's probably one of the most well-known Kentucky haters out there. 

But is there photographic evidence Knight's stance on Big Blue may be softening? As part of the The NCAA Experience VIP Hospitality event at the Final Four, Knight is appearing with former Duke star Christian Laettner and interacting with fans. One group of fans got a picture with Knight throwing up Kentucky's "3-Goggles" celebration that the 'Cats use when they hit three-pointers.

Here's another picture of Knight playing nice with a Wildcat supporter.

Knight certainly looks thrilled to be there. Side note: could there be two worse people for Kentucky fans to hang with before the Final Four than Knight and Christian Laettner?
