From the AP:

Tweeting is out of bounds for football players at Texas Tech. Red Raiders coach Mike Leach said Monday he's banning his players from having Twitter accounts a day after one of his players tweeted that the coach was late for a meeting. The move comes following Saturday night's 29-28 loss to No. 12 Houston, and an earlier tweet that led to the suspension of another player.

According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, linebacker Marlon Williams asked on his Twitter feed why he was still in a meeting room when "the head coach can't even be on time." That tweet has been deleted. Offensive lineman Brandon Carter also had a Twitter account. After the loss to the Cougars, he tweeted: "This is not how I saw our season." Carter was suspended indefinitely Sunday for violating team rules, and his Twitter page was nowhere to be found.

Hopefully the players will protest on Facebook.

That's it for us. Thanks to all the contributors today. Stay away from first down markers and watch the proceedings in Detroit (if they're able to play).
