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
RT @bchysteria @bcbradbates while you are "thinking" about Spaz,my family will cancel our season tickets and our tailgating spot if returns— Greg (@eagle98alum) November 3, 2012
Some tweeters had innovative ways to get BC fans to show up to next weekend's game.
@bcbradbates announce you will #firespaz on field pregame. Tickets would go for $200 and it'd be a sea of screaming maroon & gold.— Leather_D (@Leather_D) November 4, 2012
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.
@bcbradbates Its come to the point where #firespaz is just making the school an embarrassment & now he can do it on national TV.— Phil NJbcFan (@NJbcFan) November 4, 2012
@bcbradbates fire spaz first give the team something to be fired up for— Corey Chace (@chaceyy) November 4, 2012
@bcbradbates even if our boys manage to upset notre dame, still #FireSpaz.— Kelly Donohue (@easydisco) November 4, 2012
Show us you are the athletic director BC hopes you are and #FireSpaz @bcbradbates— Trevor Morris (@trevorjmorris) November 4, 2012
What's more important. Liberating an entire institution & all its supporters, or sparing some chump's feelings? Hmmm. #FireSpaz @bcbradbates— Kevin Ryan (@KJTR) November 3, 2012
