More details on Billy Gillispie's alleged mistreatment of players, staff

Following last week's ESPN.com report that several players had gone to Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt to complain about coach Billy Gillispie's mistreatment of them, Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com uncovers more details and allegations.

Sources told Goodman that Gillispie made one injured player practice to the point of tears; that he regularly exceeded NCAA maximums for practice time, once practicing for eight hours; and that several times he promised jobs to coaches that he didn't deliver.

Gillispie remains in a Lubbock hospital after checking himself in last Friday for what he said felt like a stroke or a heart attack.
