Mike Leach - Texas Tech Coach Bans Twitter Use for Football Team

Too bad, Texas Tech team are taboo-ed to use Twitter! That's not an alliteration joke but it's actually true - Coach Mike Leach from the Texas Tech Red Raiders has issued a ban of using the online micro-blogging platform craze because his tardiness in their meeting was broadcasted to the world. Yesterday, the Texas Tech team lost to Houston Cougars with a score of 29-28. Leach's late arrival during their Sunday meeting was blamed by everyone as the cause of their loss.

The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal reported that it was the Texas Tech linebacker named Marlon Williams who first tweeted on his account on why he was stuck in their meeting room as "the head coach can't even be on time." This controversial message on Twitter has now been deleted. Now, after their loss, the lineman Brandon Carter bitterly snapped "This is not how I saw our season" in his Twitter account. For this, Brandon Carter was suspended indefinitely for the alleged violation of team rules and now his Twitter has disappeared in the Twit-sphere altogether. Now that's tough luck for those supposed-to-be private grumblings. If you want to read more about this story, check out ESPN.
