The renovation at Commonwealth Stadium is coming along nicely. We’ve seen several pictures since it began. The Louisville Courier-Journal even provided a video a few days ago. Several collegiate venues have taken to Twitter to inform followers and fans of upcoming games, ticket sales, concerts and various other events.

It would be cool if Commonwealth Stadium joined them.

Let’s just take a few minutes and glance at the other SEC venues that are on Twitter. Each of the respective venue’s more recent tweets will be seen below. We’re going to keep the search limited to major revenue sports only, so if a baseball or soccer stadium is on Twitter I mean no disrespect for not mentioning it in this article.

Alabama: The Crimson Tide have been at a whole ‘nother level when it comes to football in recent years, much the same way Kentucky is in basketball. It comes as no surprise then to see Bryant-Denney Stadium on the Twitter scene.

Coleman Coliseum, like Commonwealth Stadium, the home of Crimson Tide basketball is not currently on Twitter. Will this be the trend throughout the SEC? Is venue that’s the most popular for each school is the one that’s on Twitter? Not so fast my friend.

Auburn: Believe it or not, Jordan-Hare Stadium does not have an official Twitter account. The basketball venue, Auburn Arena, beat it to the punch.

It’s kind of ironic that this particular Auburn Arena tweet is of a picture of, you guessed it, Jordan-Hare Stadium but I digress.

LSU: The PMAC, Pete Maravich Assembly Center, doesn’t have an official account. To the surprise of no one, Tiger Stadium certainly does.

Ole Miss: Vaught Hemingway Stadium and Tad Smith Coliseum have yet to join Twitter.

Mississippi State: Ditto for the bunch in Starkville. Scott Field and the Humphrey Coliseum aren’t on Twitter either.

Arkansas: This is kind of surprising to me. Neither Bud Walton Arena nor Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium are on Twitter.
