Holy crap, that was quite possibly the quickest greenlight I've ever seen for an article.

Their choices have been really random and spastic lately. I've stopped trying to make sense.
2003-04-29 07:59:45 PM  
What a farkin' idiot. Hope the dude got laid though!

Random article picker has been on for a couple of weeks now...btw.

I really don't see a problem with this at all.

Crack Huh
2003-04-30 12:33:11 AM  
another installment of why sportwriter shoulf NEVER EVER try comedy. Ted Kluck go back to your dayjob!

call me stupid but who hasn't had drinks with their professors once in while?? This country is so puritan it makes me sick, damn my old college profesor used to hold meeting in his bar in London.
2003-04-30 12:35:40 AM  
Personally I don't see that he did anything wrong. He went to a party and kissed some chicks on the cheek.
2003-04-30 12:36:54 AM  
I told you people from Iowa knew how to PAR-TAY!!!!
2003-04-30 12:40:45 AM  
Arched's usage of mechanics made my head hurt.
2003-04-30 12:40:49 AM  
From the Bill Walton Guide To "Witty" Sayings:
"Throw it down big man, throw it down."

At least the chicks in the ESPN pics look better than the ones in the first article.
2003-04-30 12:41:57 AM  
aw man, they didnt point up my sportsline article where he said "my actions may have been do to the use of alcohol."

From Mizzou's student newspaper:

"Accepting oral sex, especially when its not offered, doesnt seem like a good way to represent a university, but that is exactly what junior Blake Overly said Iowa State mens basketball coach Larry Eustachy did at a late January party in Overlys apartment.

A girl asked if he wanted a beer, and he said, Yeah, Ill take a blowjob, Overly said."

Wouldn't we all?
2003-04-30 12:44:17 AM  
writer of this article is definitly a moron. he says Natural Lite Ice over and over again.

anyone with a brain knows its just Natural Ice. theres no Lite in there.
2003-04-30 12:45:22 AM  
Dude who took the pic's was probably p'd because he was interested in the girl coach kissed...
I've seen a lot of teachers and coaches party with kids before, but it's usually in a public bar.
2003-04-30 12:46:59 AM  
haha! that was one of the more entertaining articles i've seen linked from fark in a while.
Go 47 year old guy!
2003-04-30 12:48:05 AM  
By the way, quite a boobie drought, eh? GIVE US BOOBIES.
2003-04-30 12:48:07 AM  
Maybe I am just a prude, you know - me stuck out here in the middle of Iowa (and an admitted University of Iowa fan), but to me I guess there is something wrong when the coach of a team goes out and gets drunk with a member of the team we just lost in overtime to. What? He also made statements at the party that his team sucked?

I'm all for a good party or two (or nineteen), but if I were lucky enough to be blessed with athletic talent of any kind and I see my coach in these pictures partying with the enemy we lost to just hours before, while I'm taking a bus back to Ames, Iowa - I'm going to be a little farkin' pissed. Now, if this happened in Ames after a big win and the coach is out kissin' the girls - you know what, I'm fine with that... but to do it at another school... It just seems a little creepy.
2003-04-30 12:50:28 AM  
Zenjestre I swear I've never used a mechanic, shiat I don't even know how to drive.

Jbc - me smells BS - I'm sure if the coach wanted cheap servicing I'm sure he'd use some of that $1 million salary for the local 'trying out for cheerleading' twins
2003-04-30 12:56:07 AM  
Stupid? Yeah. But compared the rampent grade inflation, social promotion, horrendous graduation rates, institutional corruption, under-the-table payoffs, and the standard policy of looking the other way anytime a "student athlete" manages to commit a felony, I have a hard time working up a lot of indignation over the event compared to "business as usual" in big-time college athletics.
2003-04-30 01:14:44 AM  
Um, the dude IS married and has a couple of kids... getting blowjobs and getting drunk with college coeds is hence a big no, no.
2003-04-30 01:20:29 AM  
i just think it's more weird than anything else. i am 25 and even *i* get weird looks when i end up at a party with "youngsters". granted i haven't aged all that well....but i digress. he didn't technically do anything wrong, but he sure did embarrass his school and himself in a huge way. not good when you are the highest paid public employee in the state.
2003-04-30 01:23:38 AM  
I hope I still have game when I'm a 47 yr old millionaire with a full head of hair.

/jealous sarcasm
2003-04-30 01:25:08 AM  
Atleast the dude didn't end up drunk and giving his credit card to God-knows-who at all hours of the morning...THANKS COACH PRICE! Next time... take PICS!
2003-04-30 01:29:42 AM  
What I want to know is why someone narc'd NOW, and not weeks ago. I bet there's much more to this story than meets the eye. I'm guessing someone was pissed at this dude for whatever reason, so all of a sudden they decide to give these pictures to a newspaper.
2003-04-30 01:47:43 AM  
As a former student of the University of Missouri, I have been to fraternity parties where fraternity alumni older than Coach Eustachy have hung out and drank, and these old guys are cool as shiat. Of course they are married, of course they have kids, but they just want to have a good time that night like they did when they were in college, and as long as they aren't breaking any laws, it shouldn't be a problem. They're usually the coolest people at the party, since they're the only ones not worried about getting laid.

And by the way, this is just another example of how shiatty ESPN has gotten. All they do is shiat on people who have made a mistake, and then they can't even write decent comedy when they do make fun of them. Jim Caple eats shiat (I know he didn't write this, but he does).

Notices girl in low-cut jeans with thong showing. Forgets about volume

i would've given my monitor a nice bath if i'd read this about a second later.
2003-04-30 02:39:09 AM  
I am surprised that no one has reported that Eustachy has never been too friendly to the local media. He doesn't give time to the local sports radio guys, and has stated his stance that he is a basketball coach, not a university PR guy.

Keys to disaster include having a couple mediocre seasons, throwing some on-court tantrums, acting creepy at frat parties, AND being an enemy of the media.
2003-04-30 02:47:34 AM  

"business as usual" in big-time college athletics.

Heh, while I was reading your post, especially the end, I thought, "wow, sounds like Texas." Then a checked your profile. Score!

2003-04-30 07:33:24 AM  
>>How did a 47-year-old college basketball coach end up >>partying into the night with a group of undergrads from a >>rival school?

Just lucky, I guess...


\I got nuthin.....
2003-04-30 07:41:52 AM  
BarryLutz: Yeah, a definite second on the fraternity alums. They are usually pretty cool guys, with the best stories to tell. Some of the alumni from my brother's fraternity were the best guys to party with. That, and they're rich enough, at least most of them, to bring kegs of decent beer and grub to the football games, which is quite clutch.
2003-04-30 08:05:48 AM  
Another picture from said party:

Blue, your my man.
2003-04-30 08:06:52 AM  
First off, if theres something more pathetic and heinous than frat boys, its 47-year-old former frat boys who just cant let go. Heres some news for you: fraternity alums are NOT pretty cool guys. Theyre the washed up byproduct of your lame Greek system. Since a new sports car and Viagra cant help them reclaim their wasted youth, they have to try to fit in with 19-year-olds. Its really pretty sick.

Oh yeah, and who says coed anymore?
2003-04-30 08:25:07 AM  
Hey, I go to ISU :P. Never pay attention to sports, though.

Anyway, I read the other day that this guy is our highest paid employee...
2003-04-30 08:27:53 AM  
Beorn... I agree with you 100% on the anti-greek stuff... but dude... you're from maine!
2003-04-30 08:32:02 AM  
Yes who does say coed anymore? I get slightly offended when I see that word in articles, forums, etc.

Did someone say crack inspector?!??
2003-04-30 08:52:39 AM  
crack inspector

crack investigator!!!?
2003-04-30 09:59:16 AM  
another installment of why sportwriter shoulf NEVER EVER try comedy.

I don't think I have ever agreed with a statement more. The only person on ESPN who ever makes me laugh is Bill Simmons. He is pretty funny, but otherwise they need to just quit it, or hire comedians who know sports.

P.S. Nick Bakay sucks.
2003-04-30 10:13:15 AM  
What's wrong Beorn? None of the frats at your college would take you? You have no idea how great being in a fraternity is until you are. And partying with the cool alums is always great, because they buy you good alcohol, and by good, I mean not beer.
2003-04-30 10:30:13 AM  
I invited this guy to an annual softball game in Denver....
2003-04-30 10:31:02 AM  
The thing that's wrong with this is that he's partying with students from a school his team just lost to. Anyone see anything funny with that?
2003-04-30 10:39:10 AM  
Just because someone thinks it's inappropriate, or sad, even, for a middle-aged man with a family to party with a bunch of college kids does not mean they are jealous of the fraternity experience or the generous alums who contribute to what is no doubt a valuable, life-altering journey that provides guidance to young men from their sage elders. On the other hand, some believe that there comes a time to "put away childish things," and simply don't have much respect for those who can't or won't.
2003-04-30 10:40:03 AM  
i second (or third or fourth) espn sucking. why is everyone trying to be dave letterman on that station? someone should let them in on the fact that there are no late night talk show host openings so they can stop trying out. it doesn't have to be sports ala 60 minutes.....but it doesn't have to be so freaking contrived and/or trite and/or lame either.
2003-04-30 10:56:51 AM  
Oh yea Unholy_avenger, you've got me figured out. I'm just jealous.

Also, I guess I was wrong. Frats aren't pointless excuses for wanna-be-date-rapists to get together and express their repressed homosexual tendencies by engaging in drunken, shirtless play-wrestling... they're actually meaningful organizations which promote brotherhood and civic responsibility.

My bad.
2003-04-30 11:05:23 AM  
I second the whole frats sucking thing, because I have never been to a cool frat. I tried out parties at every one at my alum (University of Wisconsin Milwaukee) and they were all as Beorn explained them above.

I have never had a positive experience from a frat, and have only met one cool person who was in a frat. So until they prove me otherwise, frats are farking useless.

Low points on Sportscenter:

The goddamn Baha Men perform live.

The Sunday Conversation with Adam Sandler (promoting Anger Management).

The "Not Top Ten": yeah, John Anderson, you're cool when you make fun of Bo Outlaw airballing a free throw, assclown.

Every time Linda Cohn opens her goddamn horse mouth. Every time she quotes Swingers, I want Roger Clemens to show up and swing the end of a broken bat against her horse skull.

The "Crack Staff" at ESPN's Page 2 should start paying for their classified ads on FARK like everybody else.
