Why would posting noose-related stuff in Mississippi be a bad thing?
i almost want give him a break on that one due to his immense autism
I’m not sorry for what I did, just that you found it offensive. Make this man governor.
Let me be the first one to take a stand against noose humor
Love that guy
What a shithead
Miss st making leach apologize like they didn’t know this is exactly what they hired
Well at least he fits in with the MSU culture
Who knew that hiring a racist guy that likes to be racist would not be a good thing for a position that deals with an 80% african american population? Who knew!
the more i think about this, the shittier it becomes
And in a state that’s nearly 40% black.
A stat with the most lynchings of black males in US History.
But then again, Leach is the type of dude to play revisionist history on that topic.
The "I'm sorry if you were offended" response is my favorite non-apology
I guess this is it. Yikes mate
I bet Leach chose the white one, too.
I get the joke
Buy hell leach would probably know the name of each color on there and tell some story about the history of each
Hey has Bruce Feldman chimed in yet
Torpedoing your roster to own the libs. Classic move
STARKVILLE, Miss.— After completing a thorough internal discussion and holding several listening sessions with appropriate student and alumni groups, Mississippi State University Director of Athletics John Cohen issued the following statement regarding a recent controversial tweet by MSU Head Football Coach Mike Leach:
“No matter the context, for many Americans the image of a noose is never appropriate and that’s particularly true in the South and in Mississippi. Mississippi State University was disappointed in the use of such an image in a tweet by Coach Mike Leach. He removed the tweet and issued a public apology. The university is confident that Coach Leach is moving quickly and sincerely past this unintended misstep and will provide the leadership for our student athletes and excitement for our football program that our fans deserve and that our students and alumni will be proud to support.”
Cohen said that a plan is in place for Coach Leach to participate in additional listening sessions with student, alumni, and community groups and to provide the coach with opportunities to expand his cultural awareness of Mississippi. One of those opportunities will include a guided visit to the “Two Museums” – the Museum of Mississippi History and the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum – in Jackson as soon as restrictions from the current public health crisis will allow.
MSU is Mississippi’s leading university, available online at www.msstate.edu.
this is so dumb :lol
In the sense that Leach will never change and that this will just be a talking point on Tucker Carlson about "liberal academics ruining football". Yes, this is dumb.
That being said, I hope this completely tanks his recruiting class and that he gets boat raced by Lane Kiffin. Which will inevitably lead to Leach running for gov of MS.
Ole zany mike just making noose jokes in Mississippi.
I'm surprised Cohen had the sense to have "listening sessions" with student/alumni groups. That guy is not exactly your liberal intellectual. But I'd imagine the outrage from various campus groups was such that he was forced to do so
would be curious to see the reaction to this with students on campus
At least there isn't a noose in this one
Mississippi college athletics is long overdue for a text scandal resulting in an ousted coach.
His meme wasn't racist. It was just typical aspy shit Leach does.
TSO’s mask game is not tight
Just has an error. What is it
He probably accidentally tweeted a burning cross or something.
Isn’t that meme supposed to be about women’s empowerment? Probably not a good thing to mock it.
His staff is from Mississippi. We don’t really understand the intricacies of what’s going on in the world so I doubt it is actually trying to be offensive.
Nailed it coach! Fat little girlfriends!
What a strange MF
There’s a challenge/ or whatever going on IG where women post black and white photos of themselves to boost awareness around women’s empowerment. At least that’s how it’s been explained to me.
unlikely leech or clanga were intentionally mocking it. Probably just trying to ride a social media wave, not fully understanding it.
