Bob Knight to work Pat Summitt's potential 1,000th win

As ESPN programming stunts go, this is an inspired one:

The network will send promising rookie game analyst Bob Knight, who won a men's Division I record 902 games as a coach, to work his first women's game Monday night - in which Tennessee's Pat Summitt will attempt to win her women's record 1,000th game.

It won't be easy, what with Tennessee at No. 2 Oklahoma. Still, cool.

Summitt will appear with Knight in Knoxville on "College GameDay'' Saturday before the Volunteer men face Florida.
