Has the Sports Editor in Heber Springs Been Hacked or Lost His Mind?

Wow! When the purported sports editor of the Heber Springs newspaper, Will Gilbert of the Sun-Times, popped up on our Twitter feed this morning with several outbursts regarding former Arkansas State University Red Wolves head football coach Gus Malzahn and his wife, Kristi, we were left dumbfounded.

We saw it first from Blake Eddins, who summed up our reaction.

There is no love loss from many Arkansas State fans for Malzahn, and we get that, but a member of the working press openly attacking a former coach’s wife in a public forum? Let’s hope Gilbert has been hacked.

Again, we say, wow!

UPDATE: We’ve been digging a little deeper into this member of the “sporting press'” Twitter feed and thought we’d share some additional gems. We take it Gilbert really, REALLY dislikes Auburn.

Editors Note: Gilbert has deleted his tweets. For what it’s worth, these are the links to what they were.
