Not all is well in "the land of hoops" today. The pressure is mounting at Iowa State for the University to fire head basketball coach Larry Eustachy. The 47 year old has done an outstanding job coaching at the school, and in fact he was voted national coach of the year in 2000. But off the court he has some issues. Eustachy was photographed drinking at a party in a Columbia, Missouri apartment during the early-morning hours of Jan. 22, after his Cyclones lost to the Missouri Tigers. The photos show Eustachy drinking while embracing and kissing or being kissed by college aged women. The Des Moines Register ran the photos yesterday and today the paper called for his resignation. Eustachy said through his attorney that alcohol played a role in his behavior. He is the the highest paid state employee in Iowa. He and his wife have two sons ages 10 and 8. The University is still inviestigating the incident.
