@JimTressel5 on Twitter

So, Jim Tressel on Twitter is a thing:

Tressel has just three tweets of his own so far, all related to events at Akron where he's the Vice President of Strategic Engagement.

Please let this be more than a dry, PR-driven account. We want to retweet Tressel going nuts this fall when Braxton Miller breaks a touchdown run.

I live in Blaine, but the drive is fairly quick. its a great spot to catch the Big games/night games on the big screen TV, the place is packed on weekends and the staff is Buckeye friendly. They even provided a signed Archie Griffin helmet for our fundraiser last year.

I also wouldn't mind the occasional criticism of and/or incriminating photo of Terry Bowden tossed in for good measure.

Tressel on Twitter?  Wearing those colors?  Next thing you know, he'll be saying that punting is overrated.

SOCK PUPPETS OF THE WORLD, UNITE!!!

Given his football philosophies what's the over under for character usage in a given text of his? Certainly not the whole 140. Maybe 30 max? And if he gets a wild hair, an insane thought escapes late in the process, perhaps 40?
During the next few NC games we know he'll be outtweeted by at least 14 characters by SEC coaches.
Perhaps he'll hold to outdated vernacular and line spacing due to misplaced loyalty.
Will he choose to end poorly defined thought streams by just punting till the next Tweet?
The verbosity of this first tweet must be accounted for by the fact that it was composed at an in-state MAC school.
 
 
^all severely tongue in cheek

That and play action passes on third and long. Just thinking about brings me back to the frustrations of 2011.
