Who cares? He's a drunk old man who should have been fired.

I am so glad that God saw fit for me to observe and meet an icon like Coach Sutton. Us older grads remember Coach Iba. I suggest that Coach Sutton is no lesser coach or person, and should be addressed as such.

I grew up down the street from Sutton. As you can see, I'm a Sooner fan, even though I lived in Stillwater. I'm very disappointed with Sutton. What a waste of a man. I don't understand why he's a drunk. I also think he should have been fired. What example is he setting for the young students? If he had been a coach with a losing record, he would been fired without hesitation. But because of his record, he was allowed to keep honors earned from coaching. He should have been made an example of, so that kids would know that it's not ok to drink and drive, no matter how famous you are. What's even worse, he doesn't learn from his mistakes. He already was caught after having his wreck a while back on his way to the airport. Now the latest is that he was found about a half a mile from his house passed out in his car. What a role model.
