A whole different world

You know, five years ago if you had told me the LSU football coach was twittering I would have wondered if you meant Curley Hallman was twittering away some of LSU's tradition/recruiting advantages by posting four consecutive losing seasons.

Now, it's all the rage. Les Miles is featured in a USA Today story on coaches and Twitter.

Part of me thinks this is just plain goofy. A coach speaking thoughts of 140 characters or less for some flunky to blast our via Twitter.

And then you see that the competition is doing the same thing and you think, well, you've got to keep up with the Joneses.

As far as tweeting during games, I don't think it will be much different than those ridiculous interviews at halftime.

Again, the whole thing seems rather silly. But it's the day and age we live in. It's certainly hard to imagine Cholly' Mac twittering.
