Twitter, oh those blessed 140 characters. Though it may seem like it at times, our Commander-in-Chief isn’t the only person on Twitter. Twitter has become an amazing source for all things Gopher Sports related, but especially Gopher Football. PJ Fleck and staff have made great use of the platform; to the point one of their Tweets about a backup kicker went viral and was even discussed on the Today Show. With the start of the season next week we have compiled a list of some of the essential people to follow for all things related to Gopher Sports and Gopher Football. Please give everyone a follow to keep up with the latest Gopher news.
