RichRod, You've Got Some Catching Up To Do

Posted By on Fri, May 3, 2013 at 5:19 PM

The first year under coach Rich Rodriguez was a mild success for the University of Arizona football team, which made a bowl game, received some national attention and is getting people to start paying attention to the Wildcats again.

Sadly, this hasn't translated into massive Twitter fame for RichRod.

Proving that there is just no offseason or downtime in college sports, the Tulsa World has compiled a list of the top college football coaches in terms of Twitter followers. Rodriguez ranks a paltry 41st with 8,297 followers (though that number had bloomed to 8,309 as I write this), which puts him more than 97 THOUSAND behind runaway leader Les Miles of LSU.

It's even 1,100 less than the oh-so-famous Willie Taggart of South Florida, but at least it's far more than the esteemed coach of Girls Gone Wild University and Casino, Todd Graham (71st, 1,983 followers).

Too bad RichRod can't count the 1,364 followers that parody account @FakeRichRod has amassed.
