The Overtime! Weekly ‘Twitter Take Five’

Following your favorite NEC athlete or sportswriter on Twitter is an enjoyable experience, but can also become an overwhelming one.

With so many people to follow and so much information to digest, it isn’t always easy to manage. Hence, the Overtime! Blog’s Twitter Take Five, a new weekly feature that selects five of the most intriguing/significant Tweets from across the NEC and presents them to our fans right here on the Official Blog of the Northeast Conference.



Tweet No. 5 – Rickeem Jackson, WR, Robert Morris Football


This Robert Morris receiver doesn’t focus solely on football, but also appears to ponder some of the great mysteries in world history. Anyway, we will answer his question with a question. Aliens?



Tweet No. 4 – Lisa Pace, Associate Head Coach, LIU Brooklyn WBB


Coach Pace tweeted this message out on October 1, the first day NCAA Division I basketball teams were allowed to hold official practices. The Blackbirds and each of the 11 other NEC women’s hoops programs are up and running in preparation for the 2012-13 campaign. LIU Brooklyn will tip off on November 9 at NYC rival Columbia.



Tweet No. 3 – Bboogie (@Rupes31), Sacred Heart fan/blogger


This Sacred Heart fan/blogger is helping to promote an extremely noble event that will unfold on the SHU Campus this weekend.  The Pioneers have designated their NEC field hockey match against rival Quinnipiac as their “Stick It to Cancer” game. For more information on the Oct. 7 game and how you can help “Stick It to Cancer” visit Bboogie’s blog.


Tweet No. 2 – Noreen Morris, NEC Commissioner


The lack of tweets coming from the @NECcommish account was a bit alarming. The above tweet explains it all though. There isn’t much time for recreational tweeting when you are bouncing from campus to campus.  Keep up the good work, Commissioner Morris, but tweet about it a little more often if possible.



Tweet No. 1 – Kelly Beidler, Mount St. Mary’s MBB Alumnus/Pro Basketball Player


Kelly Beidler has been out of the NEC for three years now, but the former Mount St. Mary’s forward hasn’t stopped keeping tabs on the happenings in his old conference. Beidler, who is set to begin a new season in Germany’s Basketball Bundesliga, obviously saw the highlight of Wagner running back Dominique Williams leaping over a Bryant defender.  Williams’ run came in at No. 8 on ESPN SportsCenter’s Top 10 College Football Plays.

For those of you who missed it…
