In a sign he may have buried the 19-year grudge against Indiana University, Bob Knight was on the campus Saturday to take in the Hoosiers' baseball doubleheader versus Penn State. 

The Big Ten Network tweeted video of Knight riding around the campus in a golf cart:

Knight even talked to Jim Coyle of ESPN 97.7 in Evansville about his return to Bloomington for the first time since 2000:

In a 2017 interview on The Dan Patrick Show (h/t CBS Sports' Kyle Boone), Knight said he had "no interest in ever going back to" Indiana because of the university's hierarchy at the time of his firing. The legendary coach added "I hope they’re all dead" in reference to the administrators who dismissed him. 

Time, it seems, heals some of those wounds. Knight went 659-242 and won three national titles in 29 seasons with the Hoosiers from 1971-2000.
