In one of the stranger college sports reports you will ever hear, the Stanford University Athletic Department announced that they have traded their Twitter account (@SUAthletics) to Syracuse University.
The move turned out to be a natural fit for both schools. The Twitter handle aligns well with the web address for the Syracuse Athletic Department (SUAthletics.com) and Stanford athletics twitter account will now be @GoStanford which aligns well with the popular #GoStanford hashtag.
In exchange for the account, Stanford Athletics will receive a case of oranges and some other local goods to be named later.
If this was any other school, it would be a head-scratcher. But Stanford Athletics has always moved to the beat of a different drummer, both literally and figuratively.
