Twitter Feed Follow Friday: UA vs. NAU

Posted By on Fri, Aug 30, 2013 at 10:00 AM

The crowd for tonight's game between Arizona and Northern Arizona should be a decent one, though it won't sell out. If 50,000 make it out to Arizona Stadium for the 7 p.m. kickoff that would be considered a success, seeing as it's a Friday and it's Labor Day Weekend.

If you're not among those going to the game, though, how you track the progress of the Wildcats and Lumberjacks depends on your access to media โ€” sorry DirecTV subscribers, time to find a watering hole with DISH โ€” and how you like your information disseminated.

Or you could be at the game itself and be one of those dorks that wears their headphones to "listen" to the game while physically attending it.

If sports bars aren't your thing, might I suggest a more 21st century way to follow the UA-NAU game: namely, via Twitter feeds?

The most bare-boned way to do this would be to follow the official feeds for UA and NAU's football programs, though you'll be getting a very different take from each side. Look at some of the tweets leading up to the opener as an example.

For UA, it's pretty much business as usual:


For NAU, though, the most recent tweets make tonight's game seem like a super-cool fifth grade field trip to the planetarium:


Another approach would be through the tweetage of local beat writers, but that might not provide you with your daily quota of exclamation points and emoticons:


Unless, of course, you're looking for a somewhat different take on the goings on at Arizona Stadium, like from someone who's not actually allowed in the press box:


But if you want the real inside scoop, the info that you can't get anywhere else, look no further than tweets straight from the (not really) sideline:
