SB Nation Seattle: Banning Twitter Sends Wrong Message To College Athletes

A nice take on the pros and cons of Twitter In the wake of New Mexico head coach Steve Alford banning the microblogging platform up and down his roster. Alford's action is likely one all college coaches wish they could employ, but likely realize it's just not practical. It may sound crazy, but I could see this negatively impacting the Lobos recruiting efforts in the news few years. If you're not even allowed to tweet, then a perception could develop among prospects that the ship is too tightly run on the whole in Albuquerque, and they'll look for a scholarship elsewhere.
