Wyoming students took trash-talking to a new level on Wednesday night when Colorado State came to town. The Rams head coach, Larry Eustachy, has a deep history of alcoholism and despite his well-documented effort to ditch the disease — April will mark 10 years of sobriety — students dug deep, chanting “alcoholic.”

A little backstory on the trash-talk, Eustachy was the head coach of the Iowa Hawkeyes before being fired following the surfacing of photos of him drinking with undergraduates. He then headed to Southern Miss for eight years before being hired by Colorado State.
While students digging up the deepest dirt on opposing teams and using them as ammunition during games is generally par for the course, there’s a couple of things wrong with Wyoming’s go-to.
First, it’s about ten years too late.
Second, alcoholism is one of the things that is not a laughing matter.
Wyoming lost the game 78-56, which probably serves the Cowboys fans right.
