CFB Social: The week that was in social media


The College Football 24/7 home page and @NFL_CFB Twitter account are great ways to keep up with all the major news surrounding the college game. But what about the things that pop up on social media and don't make the headlines?

Well, we've come to answer that call by scouring Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and other social-media networks some coaches can't pronounce to find some of the best posts each week. Here are some of the things that caught our eye this week:

Of course the big news on Friday was that Johnny Manziel's pal LeBron James was heading back to Cleveland to rejoin the Cavaliers. While numerous players were excited over the news, Texas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury summed up what we were all thinking while LSU's Les Miles was in more of a welcoming mood as a local.

It was simply a good week for Kliff on Twitter, as he had this gem in the middle of Brazil's terrible 7-1 loss to Germany in the World Cup.

In more college football-centric news this past week, you won't be seeing coaches hold up the crystal football when they win the national championship anymore. Instead, the CFB Playoff folks started teasing their unveiling of the new trophy for the sport, which will happen right before SEC Media Days kick off next week.

Georgia coach Mark Richt is one of the nicest coaches around, and this week he added an additional title -- grandfather -- to his duties after son Jon and his wife welcomed a little girl into the world.

Another coach that seemed to enjoy spending the week with family was Florida State's Jimbo Fisher. He's apparently quite the fisherman, judging by that catch.

Huskey Stadium was named one of the best venues in the country by CFB 24/7, and views like this in the summer are one of the reasons why.

Speaking of top stadiums, Texas A&M made sure to note that the renovated Kyle Field would have the largest video board in college football. Not a bad one-two punch in the state when you throw in AT&T Stadium's massive jumbotron, too.

The Elite 11 quarterback competition happened this week at Nike's headquarters in Oregon and some of the top college signal-callers in the country also happened to stop by to serve as counselors. They naturally took to social media to share what a great time they had around each other and with some of the top high school quarterbacks.

Still, Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty posted this video to his Instagram and it kind of makes us question his golfing skills (and maybe coordination) just a tad.

Finally, Oregon posted this really interesting all-access look into their equipment room and operations to YouTube. How do all those crazy uniforms, gloves and shoes end up on the Ducks? Here's a glimpse as to what goes on behind the scenes.
