Billy Gillispie Hospitalized

ESPN is also reporting that Billy Gillispie was hospitalized today in Lubbock, Texas for unknown reasons:

Associate athletics director Blayne Beal, who is in charge of communications, confirmed that the meeting took place with Hocutt and the returning players.

Beal also said the school was informed early Friday morning that Gillispie was hospitalized in Lubbock. Beal said he didn’t know why he was hospitalized and had no further details on his condition.

LubbockOnline.com reports that Gillispie is in “satisfactory condition” and had an ultrasound earlier this afternoon. University Medical Center did not release any more details about why he was brought in.

More details as we know them…

    What do you want to bet it’s “exhaustion”?

    Aggressive? Moody? Not approachable? Ultrasound?….He’s pregnant.

    He must have ate a bad worm from the bottle from Mexico…I also think it could be like #3 stated if not from the fire water in Mexico.

    Ultrasound? Gallbladder? Carotid/Stroke? Liver/hepatitis?

    Hope he is ok. Obviously he is a troubled soul. Hope he can get his life straight. Probably needs to lay off the coaching and the drinking for a while. They seam to be a lethal combo for him.

    Apparently being an asshole is a medical condition now. The things you learn.

    Take your sympathy and shove it #10. Screw him, let him go to hell after all he did to the kids while he was here. Looks like he hasn’t learned anything. I hope the next we read about him is his obit. Just my humble opinion

    Ultrasound=liver problems. Bank that one.

    Still not playing with a full deck. Obviously he learned nothing from his experiences at UK. His problems aren’t physical. He needs to check into a mental hospital. What a POS.

    I how he’s okay but he better not try to excuse his behavior as a medical problem.

    They did an ultrasound on Gillespie and couldn’t find anything (inside his head).

    It’s all part of his plan — he needed one more crazy incident in order to qualify for Celebrity Rehab.

    There is a solution for Mr. Gillis Pie: Sanatorium + straight jacket + rubber room.

    Although he did define the word “failure” as a coach and human being while at UK, it never ceases to amaze me how people hate him rather than the fact that he was hired bu UK. He did not hire himself.
