Well, he blew a .22. To figure out how many drinks per hour that is, first, we have to take a guess at the man's weight. Now, I've been fired from my job trying to guess people's weight at the carnival three or four times, so I'm not very good at it. But if we guess an even 200 pounds, consuting our handy "How Drunk Was Eddie Sutton" chart above, we can see that he had the equivalent of 12 drinks in one hour.

That is a lot. But unfortunately for Coach Sutton, it falls just short of cracking the Top 15 in the BadJocks BAC Ranking of Athletes. It falls short of Charles Woodson's .24 when he was arrested at his own charity golf tournament, or Fairfield University football coach Joe Bernard's .23, when he rammed his car into five different parked cars.

So it's fortunate that the coach didn't cause more damage than he did. And I wish the best of luck to his rehab counselors.
