It can mainly be attributed to his previous gig at Providence along with his analysis job at Big Ten Network. But by hiring him, Central Michigan basketball can claim the most followed person on Twitter: Keno Davis. In fact, his follower count, which is well over 20,000, pretty much dwarfs the rest of his compatriots, including men's basketball and football:
Central Michigan basketball: @CoachKenoDavis
Eastern Michigan basketball: @RobMurphyEMU
Akron football: @TerryBowden ← and he hasn't even tweeted in two years!
Eastern Michigan football: @ron_english
Western Michigan football: @coachcubit
OHIO basketball: @TCUJimChristian ← needs updating, coach!
UMass football: @CharleyMolnar
Kent State basketball: @CoachSendy
Western Michigan basketball: @broncobball
Miami football: @coachdtreadwell
Toledo football: @UTMattCampbell
Buffalo football: @UBCoachQuinn
Northern Illinois basketball: @NIUcoachmonty
Bowling Green basketball: @orrlouis ← He hasn't been on lately either.
(Sorted by follower count at the time of the post. Obviously these are dynamic numbers so will update in real time.)
Davis has almost twice as many as everyone else COMBINED. I really doubt any other MAC coach in their current position is going to make it very high beyond 5,000 but it would be nice to see some of the other coaches join and share what's going on. Or at least make it so that the rest of the field owns at least 51% of the total follower count. C'mon, fans. Drive up the numbers.
