    All his family said was that he died at home of natural causes.

    When someone dies at 84 I write it down to being old.

    I only met him once. He was drunk out his ass and it was not noon yet. I was told he got over that.

    I thought you were responding to me. I have some folks on ignore.

    Sorry.

    Eddie was a drunk when he was at Kentucky. Not the normal drunk, he was a stumbling drunk. He did bad harm to the University of Kentucky basketball program.

    He gets UK hung and then a year later he is all fat and happy at another program while UK can't play in the tourney. Screw him.

    Billy by a long shot. Sutton was a drinker. Billy was just a drunk like me.

    Hell I was in Owensboro when Eddie signed Rex Chapman, it was early in the day. Eddie was anything but sober.

    I knew then that UK was in trouble.

    I've had a few with Bob Huggins before. This was after he got his very public DUI, so he came across the river to a little hole in the wall bar I used to frequent in NKY, trying to keep a lower profile. Of course that was before camera phones were common... you can't get away with anything like that anymore unless you drink in your own basement.

    Only one day apart from Jerry Sloan. Two of the greats. Crazy.

    He certainly was a drunk. But he didn’t create the monster at Kentucky. He just had to feed it. Good news for me they got caught though. Eddie Sutton and those Byron Houston OSU teams are what got me into CBB. I may not be on this board as a fan otherwise.

    It kind of defeats the purpose of posting doesn't it?

    Pretty much. Also, to claim he’s not rustled yet has so many people on ignore is very ironic. I don’t have a single poster on ignore...bc as you said, it’s a message board. Plus, if a poster gets to you that bad on here that you have to use an ignore function to block his posts, maybe this place isn’t for you and you need to develop thicker skin. However, he’s the definition of a wimp.

    No I totally agree. This board isn't for you if you are offended that easily. But whatever works I guess.
