#FollowFriday: @CoachArtBriles and the Twitter Guide for Baylor Athletics

The blog for the Tulsa World posted a list this morning of the most-followed CFB coaches in the country, and shamefully, our own Art Briles ranked only 48th on the list. This cannot stand. If nothing else, consider it our sacred duty today to raise that number. I think we can get 6,000, do you?


While we're on the twitter subject, every now and again I get questions about who to follow on twitter for all the important Baylor athletic news. It's true we don't have as many erstwhile sources as some of the larger schools around us, but we do have several twitter accounts that deserve your attention, should you choose to give it.
