Buckner Releases Latest NCAA Compliance Office Social Media Top 25 List (based off Twitter Followers)

On August 1, 2013, Buckner released the inaugural NCAA compliance office list  based upon the number of Twitter “followers” each institution had. The list was based off of the University of Tennessee released “Top 25″ rankings by sport for NCAA Division I institutions (http://www.utsports.com/genrel/071113aad.html).

In the spirit of fun, the Buckner Law Firm, has compiled its mid-football season “Top 25” list for athletics compliance offices and “Top 10” list for conference compliance offices. Additionally, due to popular demand, Buckner has added additional “Top 10” list for FCS and I-AAA institutions.
