After Boston College's disappointing loss to Wake Forest, BC fans took to Twitter to let AD Brad Bates hear their displeasure.
When Brad Bates was hired, one of the first moves he made was to make a twitter handle. And credit when credit is due, he has been active on it, unlike Gene DeFilippo who hasn't been seen on Twitter since mid-January. Whether Bates is actually running his account, or the BC SID is, they have to be aware of the flood of comments or "@'s" for you not aware of the world of twitter. After yesterday's game, Bates account was bombarded with angry BC fans, so let's look at some of the most memorable tweets:
There was general malaise amongst some.
I never thought I would reach this level of not caring about BC football. @bcbradbates has a tough job ahead.— Caerus (@Caerus) November 4, 2012
Others offered financial threats to the new Athletic Director.
Not going to BC vs. ND unless Spaz is fired. You hear that @bcbradbates. I hope more people with tickets do the same.— Nick S. (@totheights) November 3, 2012
@bcbradbates I've had season tix for 19 years (plus 4 as a student) as well as long term FF donor.Won't happen next year if Spaz stays.— Damian Comito (@dcomito) November 3, 2012
Some tweeters had innovative ways to get BC fans to show up to next weekend's game.
While one tweeter had an idea on where to leave Spaz.
@bcbradbates Leave the Stache in NC with bus fare. Please end this.— Brian Thomas (@mod12b) November 3, 2012
And lots, and lots and lots of anger towards Coach Frank Spaziani.
