The essence of being an offensive lineman in less than 140 characters

Twitter is an excellent tool, limited only by your imagination and the confinement of 140 characters. However, being limited to 140 characters didn't stop Ohio Northern (D-III) offensive line coach Devin Russell from finding the perfect way to sum up the mission of being an offensive lineman.

It may be back from April, but it's been so popular that it's still making the rounds around Twitter months later. It was actually brought to my attention over the weekend and as a former offensive lineman, it obviously spoke to me.

Offensive line coaches everywhere at every level will enjoy that one, and who knows...maybe this will challenge other position coaches to fit their position's mission statement into 140 character or less and get it circulating. If you feel up to it, send yours to me via @CoachSamz and I'll share it with everyone on this page.

Here are a few more submissions:

It's hard to have a distinctive look when your colors are white, blue and gold. That's a road pretty well traveled. 

Akron, wearers of white, blue and gold, had a pretty good look in 2013. Not great, but certainly nothing to be ashamed about.

Akron gold

Last month, head coach Terry Bowden unveiled a new gold Christmas-ornament helmet that looked like an exact replica of Baylor's gold chrome helmets.



But on Saturday, Bowden tweeted out yet another look that I really like. It's a white lid with a gold Z and a blue facemask. The colors work together in concert, and the Z stands out here unlike on any other Akron helmet.

There's nothing unique about white, blue and gold, but that Z sure is one of a kind.

This is pretty good from a program that had fallen way behind on stuff like this. 

Video: Camp at this Division III school looks fun

Most Division III schools wish they could have the video support of Linfield College. Heck, some Division I schools don't even have it this good. The Catdome Alumni folks behind the Wildcats' videos always make them look good, and this camp highlight video is no different.
