to Twitter or not to Twitter
Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com takes a look at coaches using Twitter. as far as i can tell, the Big Ten coaches currently using the site include Bruce Weber, Tubby Smith, Tom Crean and Thad Matta.
there can be plenty of debate as to the impact of a coach's tweets. what cannot be argued is that the list above represents 80% of the conference's active coaches who have been to the Final Four. (i fully expect Izzo to jump on board soon.)
i realize tweeting does not seem to fit Bill Carmody's personality, but his lack of visibility has already been highlighted, this would seem to be an opportunity with no downside. obviously our football coach dove into Twitter headfirst, so i'll follow his lead and use the medium as well, at least until i lose interest.
