Joseph Bertrand, folk hero

Joseph Bertrand started a Twitter account Thursday at the urging of teammate and good friend Brandon Paul. At the time of this post, roughly 18 hours after Bertrand joined the social networking site, he had picked up 2,904 followers.

Bertrand is as popular has he's ever been and his growth this season as a player is a big reason why.

The 6-foot-6 swingman's energy off the bench against Gardner-Webb when the rest of his teammates seemed to be lying on a beach somewhere in Hawaii rescued the Illini from a bad loss.
