Billy Gillispie has been hired by Texas Tech. Oh the irony if he could get Tech turned around and they beat UK in the NCAAT in a couple of years. I wonder if he can stay off the bottle long enough to make a difference in Lubbock. Then again it was probably the pressure from the UK job that drove him to drinking.

Its only pressure if you can't handle it. G was way in over his head and I'm not very worried about getting beat by G in the Ncaa T lol.

It's not like he got a DUI while coach at UTEP, or anything.

HOBODRUNK is back where he needs to be: Texas. He's a Texas guy, period.

Do your research next time. He had issues prior to UK with drinking. Good grief.

Billy G will be downing SoCo and Dr. Pepper and jumping in coed pools under his native Texan sun. Good for him I guess... I still don't like him.

Don't forget the peanut butter crackers.

I'm not sure why people are surprised there's not a thread about this. It's not like it's an SEC basketball topic.

I think the Dr. Pepper and peanut butter crackers was his morning hangover cure. At night when he was jumping in the pools he was drinking Dr. Pepper mixed with SoCo... I think he has a Dr. Pepper sponsorship or something. lol
