Post Madness Tworts

So the Final 4 has been set. Alas, it was a sad time for me this weekend. My Arizona Wildcats did not win their Elite 8 matchup with UConn  losing 65-63. A last second three-pointer by senior Jamel Horne hit the rim but it wasn’t to be (read more here) http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketball/recap?gid=201103260129. With a full day to recover from the loss, The Arizona Daily Star offers some perspective to Arizona’s season here, http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/basketball/recap?gid=201103260129.

So we have until Saturday to talk about the games that were and the games to come. And of course, we will also talk about what seems like a never-ending soap opera of As the Coaching Carousel Turns. It’s become an annual ritual. I know it’s not just in the NCAA men’s basketball programs but in all sports, NFL, NBA, MLB, you name it. It happens. But here is my Tworts tidbit for today:

The University of Tennesse hired Cuonzo Martin as their new basketball coach to replace Bruce Pearl. Cuonzo Martin sent his first tweet out today as Tennessee coach @CuonzoMartin. One tweet is all he has done but here are his stats so far:

1 Tweet     72 Following    3596 Followers    34 Listed

Compare that to his previous account as head coach at Missouri State @CuonzoLMartin  and here is what you come up with:

 159 Tweets    14 Following    1713 Followers    88 Listed

I’m no math genius here but in the span of a few hours he has doubled the amount of followers he had by leaving Missouri State (Missouri Valley Conference) and going to Tennessee (Southeastern Conference). Yes, it’s because he moved to a bigger conference but still, that’s just within a 5 hour time frame. His first tweet today under @CuonzoMartin was only 5 hours ago. I’m not sure when he created this new account but chances are, it was just today. Those SEC fans can be rabid about their sports, even if it’s not football. No, he’s no Charlie Sheen in the Twitter Universe but who is?

Correction: make that 3597 followers. I just decided to follow him.
