With fall camp underway, it’s only a matter of days until the defending Pac-12 South champion Colorado Buffaloes open their 2017 campaign. Before they do, here’s a list of ten notable twitter accounts to follow to keep up to date with the Buffs.
Colorado Football @RunRalphieRun
Keep up with the latest news and information surrounding the Colorado Buffaloes football program by following @RunRalphieRun. It’s the main Colorado Football account and a must follow for any Buffs fan.
The best student section in the country is also one of the best Twitter follows and always has the scoop for Saturday Folsom apparel choices.
Yes, even the best LIVE mascot in all of college athletics has a twitter account, or at least her handlers do. I can think of no better time to start following @CUBuffsRalphie as this year marks the 50th anniversary Ralphie’s first run. #Ralphie50!
Colorado Video @cu_video
The official twitter account of Colorado’s Emmy award winning sports video department, do yourself a huge favor and give them a follow. You also might want to head over to their Vimeo page and check out their six-part series titled “The Rise,” which chronicles the 2016 Buffaloes season. You won’t regret it.
David Plati @davidplati
When CU Associate AD/Sports Information Director David Plati was informed that Michigan would not be releasing a two-deep depth chart prior to the game vs the Buffs last September, he took things into his own hands.
Yes, Plati was the architect of this great Colorado depth chart which included the likes of Eric Cartman at left tackle and Lloyd Christmas returning punts. From one Coach Mac to another, he’s been Colorado’s SID since 1984 and has worked over 400 football games.
Darrin Chiaverinni @CoachChev6
The winner of the inaugural Buffalo Heart Award in 1998 – given to the Buffs player that best demonstrates grit, determination and toughness – Coach Chev’s tweets will get you fired up to root for (and even play for) the Buffs. It’s also cool to see him tweet about his son Curtis, a freshman wide receiver, who is trying to follow in dad’s footsteps.
Joel Klatt @joelklatt
One of the best quarterbacks to grace Folsom Field, Klatt set 44 different passing records and played in two Big 12 championship games during his time at CU (2002-’06). Now he’s getting paid to talk about the game he loves. Klatt is the lead college football analyst for Fox Sports and a must follow for any diehard Buffs supporters or college football fan in general.
Neill Woelk @NeillWoelk
A veteran sports writer for over 35 years, Woelk joined the CUBuffs.com staff as a contributing editor in 2015. He graduated from CU in 1982 with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and was named the state of Colorado’s sportswriter of the year in 1999.
Adam Munsterteiger @adamcm777
The publisher of BuffStampede.com since 2003, Adam is a must follow especially when it comes to Colorado football recruiting.
Brian Howell @BrianHowell33
The czar of Buffaloes football coverage at the Boulder Daily Camera, Brian always has good insights from practice and the inner workings of the program.
Barstool Colorado @CUBarstool
A direct affiliate of @BarstoolSports that just tweets about the Buffs? Yes please!
Jake Shapiro @Shapalicious
Jake leads the coverage over at BSN Denver and is a great Rockies follow as well.
I’d be remiss not to include @RalphieReport in this list of Colorado football related twitter accounts to follow. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with such a talented group of writers who are as passionate about CU Football as I am. But don’t just follow @RalphieReport. Give these talented individuals that contribute to the success of this blog a follow as well: @woodrowwilson @jackbarsch @radiohauser @sam_metiver @goeldfinger @TheGhostofMarv
Looking forward to covering the defending Pac-12 South Champions in 2017.
