UT’s Bray Tweets He’ll Be Back Soon; Dooley Not So Sure

If you read this site on a regular basis, you know that we’re anti-Twitter when it comes to college athletes.  With a few keystrokes they can damage their own reputations and — in extreme circumstances — tear down a whole program with their 140-character blasts.  (Ask Butch Davis about Twitter’s effect on his career and North Carolina’s program.)

Well, Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray is the latest to put his foot — or would it be fingers? — in his mouth with a tweet he posted last night:

 

“Thumb is feeling a lot better.  Thanks to volnation for all your support ill be back soon maybe sooner than everyone thinks…”

 

And like that, hopes were raised across the Volunteer State.  But his coach dismissed his quarterback’s tweet today.

“It’s going the same as we always thought,” Derek Dooley said.  ”I mean, it’s really hard to tell because he’s in a cast.  Somebody said he tweeted something.  He’s not a doctor, he’s a 19-year-old guy.”

Bray broke his thumb against Georgia earlier this month and was initially expected to be out at least until Tennessee’s regular-season finale against Kentucky.

Again many fans love what the interaction they get from twitter. Most of the are adults like eveyone else if they make a mistake they pay the price.
As far as UNC twitter didnt get them in trouble breaking the rules got them in trouble.

Most investigations are started or solved with someone who cannot keep there mouth shut. Twitter makes it even easier.

john...

And if a player hadn't tweeted about going to an agent's party... UNC's plethora of issues might never have been discovered.
