Boise St. coach bans Twitter

Boise State coach bans Twitter postings by players

BOISE (AP) — The Idaho Statesman is reporting that Boise State coach Chris Petersen has banned players from posting on Twitter for the duration of the football season.

Petersen says posting on the social networking site is a distraction the team doesn’t need as the Broncos enter the season as favorites to win another Western Athletic Conference title.

About a dozen players have been regular users of Twitter, but they tell the Statesman they understand the Twitter ban.

Safety Jeron Johnson says he’ll set aside his Twitter habit because it’s time to focus on football.

Don’t know how “right” I think this is. It’s like the coach telling players they can’t talk to their friends. Certainly not tweeting at practice, games or in class would be appropriate. It goes without saying that talking about practice or plays should be forbidden, but banning Twitter? Coach Peterson might as well take away their cell phones too!
