Rock On: Gary Crowton, SUU and Twitter

TWEET-WORTHY Next » 1 of 8 « Prev

Southern Utah University A.D. Ken Beazer has been on Twitter fewer than three months. He has produced just 16 tweets to date.

But on Dec. 9 he announced a contract extension through 2020 for football coach Ed Lamb. On Sunday he tweeted “Welcome Gary Crowton as the newest member of the SUU football coaching staff.”

Good stuff, but Beazer doesn’t quite have it down.

Rock On’s rule of thumb for high-end tweeting: Don’t use it for announcing coaching moves. Do use it to have big embarrassing Twitter fights with rival A.Ds., or better still, one’s own coaches.

Everything else is just white noise.

Sorry Brad but I think that 2nd one crossed the snarky line even for a light-hearted column. I see no reason to kick a man when he's down. Crowton has done some decent things in his career and there are worse places to coach than SUU.
