We’ve Said It Before: Smart Coaches Should Ban Twitter

Did you thumb through the letter of allegations handed down from the NCAA to North Carolina yesterday?  Mixed in among all the charges of wrongdoing, misinforming, and looking the other way was a quick mention of Twitter.

The NCAA requested from the school copies of “materials posted on Twitter” by UNC football player regarding trips “on which they received impermissible benefits.”

You might recall that former Tar Heel Marvin Austin tweeted information about trips and possible interactions with agents and street agents that opened the flood gates on a deluge of potential NCAA violations in Chapel Hill.

As we’ve stated before, coaches would be wise to ix-nay their players’ use of Twitter and Facebook for fear that they might post something inflammatory on the social networking sites.  Now that the NCAA has made it clear in an official document sent to a school under investigation that it’s eyeballing all those tweets and Facebook updates… maybe some coaches will get with the program and follow our advice:

Ban your players from Twitter now!
