    Story also says Billy has been hospitalized. Strange time in Lubbock.

    Re: Trouble for Billy Clyde?

    So if this is true, that's basically the end of Tech being good at basketball any time soon, right?


    Also, a little embarassed that I was one of those people that thought he might be worth the risk here when McDermott left.

    TCU vs TTech for the worst in the conference. Nothing we were not already expecting.

    Shocking to learn that Billy G is a jerk.

    He's making Pat Knight and Bobby Knight look good in one fell swoop. That ain't easy.


    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Re: Trouble for Billy Clyde?

    I realize we don't know what is happening Lubbock but this just seems to be another example of how weak minded players are today. Gillispie has had a great career and is now suddenly an unbearable hard ***? I find that hard to believe. Players would rather be told how great they are instead of being made into great players.

    Agreed. I guess it's not OK in this era to be a hard *** coach anymore without players crying to the AD about it. Pathetic if you ask me. Billy Clyde is a proven winner. If I were playing at Tech I would trust his methods. Sometimes life is hard. You can't go crying to someone every time that it is.

    It could be the kids who are different nowadays. Or... Billy has also had a well documented history with alcohol. It's just as possible that's he's not the coach he used to be because of it. Alcoholics tend to get worse with time.

    Also, from the article, it sounds like at least part of the reason he was let go at Kentucky was because of his demeanor, and not just with players either.

    He's always been known as an unbearable hard *** though. Why do you think he doesn't last very long at any job he's at?

    Re: Trouble for Billy Clyde?

    didn't he almost get fired last year after being a complete jerk to the office secretary and others in the AD?

    laughable that isu fans wanted this guy (even if they didn't know the WJ story).

    this was yesterday from cnnsi as well:

    Texas Tech do-over?: Billy Gillispie sure does know how to turn over a roster. After bringing in 10 kids in the Class of 2011, six players transferred out of his program this spring. Six. When you throw in the graduation of one senior, that means Gillispie had seven open scholarships available. That still wasn't enough, because his recruiting class for 2012 was originally nine. It looked as if everything had worked out when Rodrigo Silva, a Brazilian native and a JuCo transfer, was forced to head home and turn pro due to a family situation, but Gillispie then added another transfer, Blake Nash from South Florida. I would give you scholarship numbers, but my calculus is a bit rusty.
    It's also worth noting that Wannah Bail, Gillispie's prized newcomer, left campus after one semester of summer school due to a reported academic issue
