These days, most college head coaches are using twitter to market their programs in some sort of fashion.
This morning we noticed a tweet from @CollegeGameDay that said, “You’re down by six, and need a QB to drive your team 80 yards in 2 minutes. Who do you want under center?”
After checking out The Scoop (we assume), Cincinnati head coach Butch Jones responded, “@CollegeGameDay Who do you want under center? Zach Collaros #12 Cincinnati Bearcats.”
It's just a coach that is capitalizing on a unique opportunity to marketing his program. Good stuff, Butch!
