Winner. He learned from the best and he coached many good players. His lifelong demon was alcohol, I think, not BB opponents.

Dude looked rough. He would have made a good character actor. Met him once at the Holidome before a K-State game. We were in line at the seafood buffet. The team must have been staying at the hotel. Talked to him a while. Very nice. Easy going and down to earth.

eddie learned his lessons about cheatin' at kentucky. he got in it with bob knight over recruiting tactics. and was soon after fired when a bag of cash was found. nothing approaching ku levels but this was back in the mid-80s. eddie always claimed he didn't know. knight felt differently. so did kentucky. it was frosty for some time between the two but they mended the relationship when knight took the txt job.

ByBRIAN MALLOY
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Eddie Sutton resigned under pressure as Kentucky basketball coach Sunday, still professing his innocence of alleged NCAA rules violations nearly a year after a package to a recruit burst open and revealed cash.

University President David Roselle indicated at a news conference Sunday night he was prepared to move to oust Sutton had he not quit.

Didn’t he cheat his way to the top? Sorry, can’t celebrate that.

No, he did not cheat his way to the top. He was a good man with a weakness for Demon Barleycorn that he fought during his long and productive life as a coach and mentor of young men.
