Michael Russell Spars with Scotty McCreery on Twitter

We have a new Twitter! So be sure to follow Keeping It Heel on Twitter @KeepingItHeel!

Maybe you’ve had a rough week thus far and your Tuesday hasn’t been all that spectacular. Let country music star and North Carolina State Wolfpack student Scotty McCreery and North Carolina baseball’s Michael Russell entertain you.

McCreery tweeted his support for his school (NCSU) today after the Tar Heels won game three against South Carolina today to advance to the College World Series. Why? Well NC State will be playing North Carolina in their first games of the College World Series in Omaha on Sunday at 3 p.m.

In a dramatic headline for the opening rounds of the College World Series it doesn’t get any better than two in-state, conference foes to play each other. Throw in one of the players and a world-known country music artist and you get a quick Twitter war that is worth the read!

Take a look at the jabs Russell and McCreery took at each! Have to say, even without bias toward UNC…Russell got the the final say. Hard to come back from trashing Scotty and his sponsor Bojangles!

Will Scotty respond or is the entertaining little social media trash talk done?


Now Keeping It Heel has been told that McCreery and Russell know each other, but that cannot be confirmed. Maybe they are, or maybe they aren’t…who cares!? They gave us a good laugh!
