You may have seen my recent report that exactly 50% of D1 head football coaches are utilizing twitter.
Purdue head coach Danny Hope does have a twitter account, but Hope admitted today, "I just don't get it."
Following Wednesday's practice, Hope said, "Our recent signing class had a chance to bond some throughout the recruiting process. They connected through twitter and facebook, so that's a good thing."
"Personally, I'm not a big tweet guy. I do have a twitter account, but all I really use my twitter account for is on an occasional basis, I'll tweet some things, some facts about football. To me, tweeting is a lot like keeping a diary. Back in the day, men didn't keep diaries to share our secrets, so I don't get the twitter thing. It doesn't excite me a whole lot."
"I'll be okay the rest of my life without it. It just isn't me. I just don't get it. Normally if I've got some personal business, I keep it to myself."
"I don't get it. Maybe I'm just too old."
