I Was Afraid It Would End Badly
I predicted last winter that the Billy Gillispie story would end badly - but - maybe I was wrong. Having your mugshot for a DUI all over the papers and sports channels is not good but at least he's smart enough to recognize he has a problem and he's taking steps to overcome it. Best of luck to BCG with his personal life but I hope he loses his legal battle against the University of KY. This certainly won't help his case.
HOUSTON - Former Kentucky basketball coach Billy Gillispie voluntarily checked himself into the John Lucas Athletes After Care Program last week in Houston for alcohol-related counseling. In an interview with FOX 26 Sports in Houston, Gillispie admitted it was time for him to get help and he is doing just that. STORY
