Washington State HC Mike Leach said that USA Today reporter Dan Wolken will "probably be selling Big Gulps here in a couple of years."
Before we attempt to dissect what's devolved into an ugly situation, we feel we should note that Wolken is a respected, dedicated journalist in the industry. Responding in a column to a doctored conspiratorial clip of former President Barrack Obama which Leach posted to Twitter earlier this week, Wolken wrote that "[w]hen people ask why Washington State football coach Mike Leach hasn’t been hired by a big-time program despite his undeniable success at two schools where it’s difficult to win, well, here it is in plain sight." Leach took extreme umbrage to the column, telling the Seattle Times among other things, "[Wolken] does a horrible job and doesn't know what he's talking about." He also made his immediately infamous Big Gulp comment in that interview while claiming that the reporter is "100-percent biased." While Leach is one of the true creative, interesting minds on the college football landscape, he looks very, very bad in this spot. Jun 22 - 2:24 PM
