This isn’t your grandfather’s college football anymore.
Waiting for the morning newspaper has long been a thing of the past as a means to catch up on your favorite team’s weekend game. Shit’s updated minute-by-minute now as long as you can access the internet, which come to think of it, some grandfathers still can’t figure out. The kids are having fun with it, though. I saw an eight year-old at the airport last week punch in his dad’s iPhone password to get at his buds on Twitter.
Social media is not done taking over society, and USC football programs are the latest platform to conform. In a move I consider to be a brilliant recruiting tactic by USC head coach Lane Kiffin, excuse me…@Lane_Kiffin, he has added his players’ Twitter handles to the official USC depth chart and online profile pages. The players are going to eat this shit up, plus it makes it easier for girls to holler at them. Not to say they were struggling before, but this could possibly breathe even more life into the post-locker room trim game.
I predict USC is not the last program to implement this idea. Nice one, Kiff.
