Tweet Out for Texas Tech players

By BETSY BLANEY

LUBBOCK, Texas (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.
