Welcome to the Twittersphere, Chris Lowery.
Yeah, I made up the word Twittersphere. When it gets big, I want credit for it.
To be honest, I didn't think Coach Lowery would be jumping on board. I had mentioned it in a conversation we had a few weeks ago and he mentioned he wouldn't want to do it if someone else had to do it for him (see Kiffin, Lane).
What's next for Coach Lowery? A spot on The Big Dead Sidebar? Only if he wants it.
In more coaching stuff floating around the web, AOL's Fanhouse names Lowery as an up-and-comer in its Top-25 coaches poll. Former Saluki head coaches Matt Painter (14) and Bruce Weber (19) are in the "solid as a rock" catergory. "The System" still stands strong.
As a Carolina homer, I won't argue against Roy Williams at the top spot ... and as someone who respects what Tom Izzo has done in his coaching career, I have no beef with that either.
Never have been a fan of Bob Huggins (West Virginia) or Bruce Pearl (Tennessee) and am wondering where Dana Altman ranks on the list for averaging 23 wins the last 10 years or so.
In other Twitter news:
- Shaq wants Kobe to win title No. 4
- SIU coach Missy Tiber wants you to holler at a player if you see 'em in the streets (in much better terminology, obviously)
- Tony LaRussa is suing Twitter (via Leitch)
Think that's enough for you good folks this morning.
