Hoosier Sights: A Season on the Brink — The Movie

Legendary actor Brian Dennehy passed away today at the age of 81.

While Dennehy is known for many more memorable roles, he crossed into the IU basketball realm when he portrayed another legend — former Hoosier head coach Bob Knight.

“A Season on the Brink: A Year with Bob Knight and the Indiana Hoosiers” is based on the best-selling book by John Feinstein. The movie chronicles Indiana’s 1985-86 season, when Knight granted Feinstein unprecedented access to the team and its practices, meetings, and huddles.

The made for television movie was released in 2002.
