As you’re probably aware, this site uses Twitter quite a bit. Of course, we’re far from the only ones. Millions and millions of other people use the social media site, sharing information in 140 characters or less. The people who are involved with Oklahoma Sooners football — from the coaches to the people who cover the team — are no exception.
So if you’re already on Twitter, or if you were ever considering just lurking and following for news, here’s every account you’ll need to be keeping an eye on this season. If you don’t have a Twitter account, just make one and follow these accounts!
Main feed: @CCMachine - I usually run this one, but another staff member often runs it on game days. We try to have quite a bit of fun with this account.
Jack Shields: @jlarryshields - I have plenty of opinions about OU football, sports in general, music and all sorts of stuff. Some are good and some are trash.
Kartik Rajendran: @KRajah27 - Kartik’s one of the most enthusiastic people I know, so he’s a good follow.
Austin Brown: @AustinOBrown - Austin is a Baylor grad, but don’t hold that against him.
Graham Dudley: @GrahamLDudley - Graham isn’t a full-time guy anymore, but he still does some writing and Facebook Live stuff for us. He’s also pretty active on the Twitter.
Steve Smith: @SMUSooner - Steve is an attorney, so he likes to argue with people (usually fans of other schools) on Twitter.
Matt Ravis: @mattravis - Matt’s one of the best tweeters around. Like Graham, he can’t blog as often anymore because of his big-boy job, but he’ll also still be around in some capacity this season. If you live in Oklahoma, you can hear him over the air on The Franchise.
Alex Boxwell: @Alex_Boxwell - Alex is one of our student bloggers, and he’s really good with the X’s and O’s of football.
Tyler Hetu: @TheTylerHetu - Tyler’s our other student blogger. If you can tolerate all the Red Sox tweets, he’s a good follow.
Seth Oliveras: @SethOliveras - Seth is another new guy, and you may have seen his Countdown to Kickoff posts.
Tanner Brodess: @Tannerbrodess - Tanner primarily covers basketball for us, but he has plenty of football hot takes, as well.
Note: There may be some more new faces in the near future, so we’ll update this list accordingly.
