NEWSLINE: Why Leach banned twitter
You may have heard that late yesterday, Coach Leach banned players from using Twitter. Many news organizations last night were reporting that it wasn't clear why Leach took the action.

They took the evidence to Bill Moos yesterday for comment and the result was the Twitter ban.
