    Default Social Media Following

    SkullSparks is is an American outfit. They have compiled stats on the social media following that NA university athletic departments have.

    Here are their top 28 for Canadian universities. The stats are not broken down by sports but by the total of all sports for each university. I am pretty sure that Laval's total would be mainly due to football and Carleton's total due to basketball.

    Founded in 1848, the University of Ottawa adopted its official colours Garnet and Grey, and like many nineteenth-century institutions, the athletics teams were known only by the school's colours. Eventually, a connection was made between the shorthand "GGs" and "Gee-Gee", the common British nickname for a racehorse. The unique Gee-Gees name and iconic logo known today is a result of 170 years of history in Ottawa

    Over 42k following that trash school, eh?

    And UQAM pretty darn low. I guess those capitalist social media sites are not acceptable in a proper socialist factory.

    Laval, UBC and Montreal are also up over 42K.

    Someone at Guelph is doing a good job.

    I think Ryerson and York are surprisingly low. Of course, they don't have football to drive followers.
    Carleton: frightened by the Queen's Bands since 2014.
