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 – Nick Redden, Duquesne Football

Tweet No. 4 – Tupper the Bulldog, Bryant University mascot
— BryantMascot Tupper® (@BryantTuppy) November 21, 2013

Robert Morris finally returned home to host Texas-Arlington on November 21 after a three-game road trip that featured stops in Ypsilanti, MI and Lexington, KY. As the tweet above shows, there were a number of people happy to welcome Coach Toole and the Colonials back to #TheChuck.

NEC bowling fans should know at least one name of the list above. FDU alumnae Danielle McEwan, a three-time NEC Bowler of the Year, is contesting the QubicaAMF Bowling World Cup for the third year in a row. The two-time Team USA Trials champion is one of the remaining eight women left standing at the 49th Bowling World Cup in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. Heading into Friday’s round-robin match play, McEwan currently occupies third place (IN THE WORLD). Her 7,571 total pinfall places her 238 pins behind the leader — Canada’s Caroline Lagrange (7,809).
