Some coaches are good at social media. Some are not. But what coaches are really, really good at is being unimpressed with their athletes’ social media posts.
And that’s just what Florida State’s Athletics Department has made happen, and filmed, and put on the internet for all of us to enjoy. Both Neal Studd, the head coach of the Florida State men’s and women’s swim teams, and John Proctor, the head coach of Florida State’s diving team, get in on the fun.
First, at about the :15 second mark, Coach Proctor reads an interesting tweet by Caroline Gerhardt about her feelings towards stripper pole wax, to which he has no comment.
Coach Studd first gets in on the fun at the 1:20 mark, where he reads a tweet from McKenna Harris about how she managed to accidentally put her hand in her coffee. He also reads off tweets from Caroline Neil (2:18 mark) about that one time she pretended to be a point guard, and Lauren Peavy (3:28 mark) about how she tested out her pepper spray.
While many of these Tweets and responses are good, the winner of this video is women’s basketball head coach Sue Semrau. Coach reads a Tweet from Shakayla Thomas that says “I always say I’m gone go shoot. But end up watching TV,” and responds “that’s why we haven’t won a National Championship yet.”
