    Good article on Eustachy and Gillespie

    I found this on CBSSportsline.com the other day. It does put LE in a very good light. As for Gillespie, I stopped liking him when he went to Kentucky and supposedly tried to steal Weasel Johnson away from us, but if he is suffering from alcoholism, maybe there's a good reason why he comes offf as such a pr!ck.

    Anyone want to take a side bet on how long this thread takes to turn into either an indictment or defense of LE's performance at ISU?

    Exaggerating a fact to make a point. I do it all the time. I hate when people discount alcoholism as being nothing, or as if it is none of their business, and I think it's freaking ridiculous that people think that way. If we don't help people with the problem, they will continue to make the same mistakes. I'd rather help someone after a first mistake (or even third) before mistake six or seven takes an innocent life in a drunk driving situation, etc.

    I can say I am proud of Larry for the leaps and bounds he has made to this point in his journey to sobriety, and will always be proud to call him a Cyclone.

    I too was a LE fanatic. I liked his drive and energy on the court.

    I'm surprised the LE rehab articles keep appearing; the reporters seem to keep reprinting the same stuff.

    A lot of people have drinking problems. LE's story is a good one since he has been clean. Many others are not.

    Insinuating that alcoholism is in any way comparable to the horrors of cancer goes beyond exaggeration and ends up right smack dab in the middle of stupidity.

    I hate when people like LE elevate a behavior, like alcoholism, to the level of the disease of cancer. It's obscene.

    They both destroy lives, seems like a good comparison to me. The only difference is that with alcoholism you do it to yourself (unless you are hit by a drunk driver), with cancer you normally have no control over it (providing your not a smoker).

    More Americans will die this year because of alcohol than have died in all the wars since WWII. It is a problem.

    That's kind of a big difference, and it isn't even close to being the "only" one.
