Iowa St. hoops coach Larry Eustachy partying with some minors...You'd think the guy could afford a better beer :-)

Eustachy's ordeal is sort of interesting, isn't it? I can't really fault the guy, but at the same time I've never made the wisest choices either. I just hope he doesn't lose his job over it.

Well laa-tee-daaa mister big time money man...not all of us can be so wealthy to afford all those 'gourmet' beers like Miller Lite, Bud Lite, Strohs, etc...don't dog Nathaniel. ;-)

Could be worse....at least his 'partying with minors' didn't go the way of Mark Chmura.

If memory serves correctly, Tic Price was dismissed from Memphis for having sexual relations with a female student. I dont know if he was married thought. He resurfaced and is presently coaching somehwere in the Southland Conference.

I'd think that Iowa St. would be less lenient regarding an issue like this. Add the recent lack of success and my guess is, he is gone.

Cactus, your memory was indeed correct. Nobody really minded too much, as the team was floundering anyway.

That and we have Calipari now, so we're trying to forget that period of time everyone else calls the 90's.

Another morong proving he doesn't deserve to be a college head coach. I mean christ if he can't be responsible enough to avoid parties where minors are drinking, how can he be given the responsibility of a basketball program?

Iowa State should can his ass...

Eustachy's come out and "admitted" to being an alcoholic. Forgive me for being skeptical, but I have my doubts about this. It's a slick move on his part-he goes into treatment/rehab/detox, and there's NO WAY Iowa State fires him. He'd probably be able to sue, and it would be a PR nightmare for ISU besides.




Of course, if it's true, then I hope he gets the help that he needs.

Any self-respecting alcoholic would drink alone and not at a party with minors. He wouldn't be getting fired for showing up drunk, and the "need to get 19 year-old girls drunk" is not a handicap any court would (should) recognize.

in addition to his players having trouble with alcohol and the law, one of his assistants was charged with child porn posession. So Eustachys behavior is rubbing off on those that report to him.

So instead of blaming himself, he blames the booze. I guess we can call him the Jackie Gayda of College Basketball.

Speaking of Tough Enuff, I just found out who Eustachy looks like: Al Snow (in 10 years).
