Can I get fined if I comment about basketball officiating? — Bo Pelini (@BoPelini) March 21, 2014 It’s not the first time Pelini has had some fun on Twitter.

Twitter: See tweets in support of #teampat

Fran McCaffery’s son, Patrick, 13, underwent surgery to remove a thyroid tumor Wednesday morning, and the coach said the surgery “went as planned.” After the surgery, McCaffery headed to Dayton, Ohio, for Iowa’s first NCAA tourney game since 2006.

Twitter: How would you fix Iowa before NCAA tourney?

Iowa’s struggles continued vs. Northwestern on Thursday night in the opening round of the Big Ten tourney, as the Hawkeyes lost for the sixth time in their last seven games. What’s wrong with Iowa? What do they need to fix or change before the NCAA tourney? I asked Iowa fans on Twitter for their answers, and they were quite entertaining.

Twitter: D.J. Byrd responds to being 'called out'

Tom Izzo tore into Russell Byrd during Sunday afternoon’s loss to rival Michigan. College basketball analyst and BTN contributor Seth Davis noticed it and tweeted it. Problem is, he was thinking about a former Big Ten Byrd, the Purdue one, and tweeted “D.J Byrd.” Twitter being what it is, the former Boiler responded to Davis – all the way from Germany. Byrd’s response? “I do have a voice mail.” [ MORE: Video: Lights go out on Tom Izzo’s postgame press conference ] See the Twitter exchange below: Izzo just absolutely tore into D.J.

Twitter: Brandon Ubel talks Huskers, Miles, Petteway

Former Nebraska forward Brandon Ubel experienced a lot during his time as a Husker. Not only did Nebraska move from the Big 12 to the Big Ten midway through his career, he played his final season for Tim Miles after spending the first three years under Doc Sadler. As a result, Ubel has an interesting perspective on Nebraska’s sooner-than-expected turnaround season. See my Twitter Q&A with him in this post.
