Where's our non-conference sked??

You'll never believe this, but I was writing a post earlier today complaining that we haven't heard much about our non-conference schedule this season. While many other schools have been releasing their slates over the past month, Terrier fans have been scraping around other school's web sites trying to find any trace of a non-conference match-up.

I even sent Coach Chambers a tweet begging for some kind of sneak preview.

Apparently a lot of other people have been doing the same thing, since BU today announced that the entire OOC schedule will be announced through Twitter! From the press release, AD Mike Lynch said, "We are always looking for new ways to drive traffic to our website and interact with Terrier Nation, and are confident this will be a fun experiment for our fanbase."

I think it's cool as hell, and I wonder if any other schools have done this before. Maybe it'll even attract some buzz in the form of some kind of "here's the latest thing that Twitter is redefining"-type article.

Anyway, the schedule will be announced, tomorrow starting at 12:00pm, on the official BU Athletics Twitter: http://twitter.com/BUAthletics

Following each announced game, Coach Chambers will tweet his thoughts on the game from his account: http://twitter.com/Coach_Chambers

And then after that, I will tweet a thought or two about any of the games that seem interesting -- you know, fan perspective: http://twitter.com/chipweis

I'd encourage everybody else out there to Twitter about the matchups, and please use the hashtag #BUhoops so it's easy to find what everyone is saying about it.

Gawd damn ... Twitter is so lame.
I hope it turns out to be a passing fad. I think most people, even the Internet savvy, can't be bothered with Twitter.

The BU hoops prospectus is up on the official website.
So why not here?
Time to start dribbling again, Tallboy!

John Holland has now joined the blogosphere with his own personal blog, Inside Terrier Hoops.

Some really good stuff on there, esp considering it's one of the team's stars doing it.
