08:19 AM ET 07.19 | Fans of social media will be disappointed by a decision announced earlier this week. FSU coach Jimbo Fisher told Warchant.com Tuesday that he has banned the use of Twitter for his players indefinitely. While Fisher didn't identify a specific incident that sparked the ban, tweets earlier this month by sophomore cornerback Tyler Hunter were likely a major factor in the decision. ... "Twitter is a privilege. When you represent an organization you have to represent it very well or we don't represent it," Fisher told Warchant.com. "When we are responsible enough to deal with it, we'll deal with it (return to Twitter)." Fisher said that he had to interrupt his vacation to inform his players to stop all activity on Twitter.

Fisher interrupts vacation to make Twitter ban with a pic of Jumob....and this is the story "If Andrew White, Kansas' 6-foot-6 freshman guard, suddenly goes cold, it won't be for lack of effort. [On his first night by himself in Lawrence last month, he] made his way to the Jayhawks' practice gym, working by himself with the shooting machine just before midnight. He hoisted 150 three-pointers. And made 135 of them. "On the offensive end of the court," White said, "shooting a basketball is what will get me on the court." ... "[There's] not a whole lot of pure jump-shooters out there. So that's what I hope to be this year." White's teammates already have taken notice of his shooting ability."

I am wondering when he is gonna ban players from the team who disobey the law..but then again... TWITTER> Criminoles

I thought disobeying the law was a requirement for all CFB, not a reason for dismissal.

Disobeying the law is only if the player has a shot at the NFL and plans on playing for the Cowboys or Vikings....got to get their experience in somewhere
