We interrupt your Monday evening with some good, old fashioned Twitter beef featuring some of the state’s most notable college football programs.
And like any good Twitter beef, it involves a little subtweeting between assistant coaches.
It started a little after 7 p.m., when Texas A&M tight ends coach Tim Brewster fired off this comment comparing the SEC — the Aggies current conference — with the Big 12.
Brewster included a couple of his trademark red exclamation points to make sure he was getting his point across and then added the fact that new A&M head coach Jimbo Fisher is one of four active coaches who has won a national championship.
Folks in the Big 12, A&M’s former conference that contains many of the Aggies’ recruiting rivals, did not let Brewster’s comments go unnoticed (Fun fact: Brewster was an assistant at Texas from 1998 to 2002).
Bryan Carrington, Texas’ assistant director of player personnel and one of the most vocal Longhorn Twitter accounts, subtweeted Brewster with this GIF featuring LeBron James.
Then TCU safeties coach Paul Gonzales joined in the mix for good measure (Update, 10 a.m, Feb. 20: The tweet was deleted, but we kept receipts).
(Update, 10 a.m., Feb. 20)
Oklahoma co-offensive coordinator Cale Gundy has also joined the fray of Big 12 coaches in this Twitter brouhaha.
In case you were wondering, it’s officially football’s offseason and we still have seven months before teams starting playing meaningful games.
This should be fun.
