I realize that #HardNosed Syracuse Orange head football coach Scott Shafer just started his Twitterfeed a couple months ago, but that's not an excuse for his low following. Do you know what HCSS does with excuses? He leads them into the Carrier Dome and locks the doors behind them, making it impossible for them to escape while their family cringes in despair.
So, I'm done looking at lists of every college football coach's Twitter following and seeing Shafer in 77th place alongside Toledo and Northern Illinois' coaches.
And I've had it with seeing Shafer called out as the ACC coach with the smallest Twitter following.
This aggression will not stand.
As of the time of this writing, Shafer has 1,607 followers. The next-lowest ACC football coach following is is Boston College's Steve Addazio (2,769).
You know what I'm asking for. For the love of God, if you're not following HCSS, FOLLOW HIM. Tell other people to follow him. Promote the crap out of his Twitterfeed. And let's strike the first blow in the renewed SU-BC rivalry in The Quest To Not Have The Lowest ACC Football Coach Twitterfeed Following (TQTNHTLACCFCTF).
Do your part, Syracuse fans. Together, we shall overcome...low Twitter follower numbers for our football coach. Tweet #Hardnosed, everyone.
Just give me 11 guys who leave it on the field for the TEAM! #OrangeNation— Coach Scott Shafer (@Coach_Shafer) May 9, 2013
