Twitter: A great resource for coaches, but proceed with caution

Up front I’ve got to be brutally honest. I don’t tweet and I have read only a handful of them in my entire life.
Whether that’s good or bad, I have no idea. Much like I have no idea how the Twitter universe works, or how it actually began. Was it like the Big Bang Theory, only on a much smaller scale? And who the heck named it, Mr. Twitter?
Oh, I get the concept all right. What I don’t get is the constant need to know what others are saying, doing, thinking or even breathing. I’ve got my own life to live. I’ve got a dog at home that loves to play. I’ve got walls to paint, decks to stain, grandsons to play with and a yard that needs mowing seemingly every other day after I over-fertilized.
If I want breaking news I’ll turn on CNN or ESPN. Networks with capital letters I get.

Ranking is just a number

We’ve all wondered what would happen if sports figures from different eras met up and squared off. It’s a never-ending debate with no real answer.
Would LeBron James be able to hold his own against Michael Jordan? Could Mike Tyson knock out Muhammad Ali? What are the chances of Babe Ruth calling his shot against Randy Johnson?
Here in the middle of Nebraska on the high school sports scene, I’ve debated in my head several times with the thought of how my Class D schools would match up with the king of the county, Aurora in different sports.
We may not see Giltner play Aurora in football or witness Aurora battle High Plains in basketball any time soon, but all four area schools shared the same track at the same time Monday, and it was something to see.
