A day after the 2011-2012 Ohio State season ended with a loss to Florida in the TAXSLAYER.com GATOR BOWL (A $$$$ BOWL, bowls like this are why we have no playoffs)…Urban Meyer began his Nazi 2012-2013 Ohio State era with HIS FIRST RULE: NO MORE TWITTER. DONE. Players can either be part of the Ohio State football family, or have a Twitter…not both…
Tweets after 1st meeting with Daddy Meyer:
Tight End Reid Fragel: New staff new rules. No more twitter, not a big deal and probably for the better. Love our fans, love this place. Go Bucks #2012
Wide Receiver Evan Spencer: This is my last day on twitter…
Star Tight Dnd Jake Stonenburner: Twitter=Done. Me=back for senior year, leading this team, and shocking the world!! #gobucks #12-0
Now Urban Meyers isn’t the first coach to implement this policy. Kirk Ferentz (Iowa), Chris Petersen (Boise State), Steve Spurrier (South Carolina) and college basketball coaches Rick Stansbury (Mississippi St.) and Jay Wright (Villanova) are all coaches who have banned their players from using Twitter. And Bo Pelini of Nebraska banned twitter for a 3 week period before the Capital One Bow because Pelini wanted full concentration from his players. Maybe Bo should have allowed his players to tweet because they got smacked by South Carolina 30-13. Wonder if not being on Twitter really helped your players concentrate on football…THERE’S SOMETHING CALLED WEED BO.
So what do I think of Urban Meyer not allowing his players to tweet. I don’t like it. Let people live. Like my boy Flynn would say…”LET ME LIVE.” If players want to tweet, as long as it does not interfere with football operations, let them tweet. When you start trying to control what your players do, they start rebelling and that just leads to more unnecessary problems. I doubt you have #idiots like Chad Ochocinco or TO on your squad, and if you do they probably aren’t good enough to get national media coverage. But who the hell am I? WE’RE TALKING ABOUT THE ONE AND ONLY URBAN MEYER. Maybe he will find Jesus on the college field again…that kid will win him more championships, get him more $$$, and then he’ll cry about him during press conferences claiming he’s like his son.
