Well, technically, the OU football coach has been on it for some time now, but his account was private, so no one could read his tweets unless Stoops said they could (yeah, he was one of those).
Stoops becomes the second head OU football coach to join the popular social networking site, alongside (you guessed it) Barry Switzer, whose account has been unprotected since its inception.
That said, a protected (private) account made perfect sense for Stoops, one of the most paranoid and secretive coaches in all of sports. Now that his tweets are public, who knows what kind of advantages he might tip to his opponents? In fact, West Virginia’s coaching staff is probably combing through his feed right this second.
Unfortunately for them, most of his feed is retweets. How incredibly boring, Coach. You are not tweeting in a great way. In the end, you just have to execute your tweets better.
You’re not even following anybody exciting; just recruits, current and former players and official OU staff. I mean, how are you supposed to get the latest links from Metro OKC’s Arts and Entertainment Authority, Oklahoma Gazette?
Follow us back, Coach.
