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.https://twitter.com/sports_will/status/287583816158162946 https://twitter.com/sports_will/status/287583441363542016 https://twitter.com/sports_will/status/284052544551010304
UPDATE II: Everybody’s favorite singing, hog-hat wearing, taped-up-nosed, Hog fan @lizhoney2u has offered some comments on this brouhaha.
UPDATE II: We hear from Gilbert, with a defense, and finally an apology.
Editors Note: We captured a screen shot of the apology. Again, his tweets have been deleted, but here are the links to what they were.
