Georgia Tech Senior Associate AD, ESPN PR Director exchange Twitter pleasantries


So your starting quarterback decides to transfer, your head coach is (supposedly) erroneously reported as being unhappy with your school and wants a buyout – why not go for the trifecta and get into a social media war of words with the folks over at the worldwide leader? That’s exactly what Georgia Tech Senior Associate AD Ryan Bamford did this morning.

The whole thing began when ESPN Senior Public Relations Director, Keri Potts, tweeted some information about the ratings for last night’s Discover Orange Bowl, which of course was broadcast on the four-letter network.

Seemingly harmless, and often done after big games. But the Georgia Tech SAAD decided he was going to let Potts know how he felt about the broadcast.

And…it’s on. Potts begins with blow that causes a cut on the chin…

And then she grabs a handful of salt…

Followed up by the inevitable eye gouge…

Bamford takes a defensive stance, but it could be too late…

And then Potts goes in for the killshot….

Come at me bro!!

Now usually these things end up with tweets deleted and someone making a contrite apology (or getting a pink slip), but it would seem that Potts and Bamford still had claws to clean about an hour later.

Aaaand, scene…

Once the smoke had cleared, and the combatants had returned to business as usual, it would seem that Bamford felt the need to bury the hatchet.



Apology accepted?…

Twitter #Bromance brewing. Ain’t that sweet?
