Perhaps Will Muschamp should take a social media class at a Gainesville, Fla., library.
Less than a week after publicly tweeting what was obviously a direct message aimed at a recruit, the Florida coach did it again on Monday night.
Or maybe, just maybe, he was recruiting you. Yeah, you. You've got eligibility left, right?
Upon further consideration, the most depressing thing about this may not be the fact that Muschamp doesn't know how to use the direct message feature on Twitter but rather his use of "u" instead of you. He's a grown man. Grown men don't need to say "u." (Muschamp had only used 90 of Twitter's 140 character limit in that message, so he was not hamstrung by space concerns.)
The use of hashtags on Twitter also has confused Muschamp in the past. He wondered aloud what their purpose was given that the "#" sign is typically a number sign. And therefore, he sometimes signs random tweets with "#numbersign."
If Florida didn't struggle so much last year, Gator fans may find Muschamp's Twitter adventures endearing. However, the guess is that many don't.
