I was disappointed to read, in Timothy Egan’s column in the New York Times on 23 June 2018, that the head football coach at Washington State University, Mike Leach, “tweeted out a video of a 2014 speech by Barack Obama that was altered to make him sound like a one-world-government tyrant.” I sincerely...

I am embarrassed to call myself a “Cougar.” Coach Mike Leach has a right to his opinion but he does not have the right to doctor the words of our respected former President, Barack Obama, so that they seem to say just the opposite of what was said.

My dad, Brett, really wanted to be a “college dad,” like the ones who are pridefully wearing the t-shirts of their student’s school, watching the football games with you, and bragging to the neighbors that their kid is in an awesome college.

Andrew Thomas: "He is a football coach. His job starts and ends with that label. It is not uncommon for someone to share bullsh**t on Twitter or Facebook from both sides of the aisle. Relax."

WSU head football coach Mike Leach made a mistake this weekend — he didn’t check his source. Leach sent out a tweet Sunday asking people to share their thoughts on a video of former President Barack Obama speaking in Brussels, Belgium, in 2014. The problem was the video was fake. The phony...
