Le’Bryan Nash admits an affinity for Twitter.
“I’m a Twitter freak,” said Nash, who can be found here: @LeBryan_Nash02.
“I like tweeting about stuff. People tweet me.”
And sometimes he’s misunderstood.
Early last week, Nash sent out a tweet that read, “Im not let this man hold me down from being great I got two much on the line.”
Immediately, some followers figured Nash was referencing Cowboys coach Travis Ford.
“I need to address that,” Nash said after his big game against Missouri, “I’m not talking about Coach Ford at all. When I’m talking about the man, it’s what everybody talks about, ‘The Man.’
“It’s not about Ford at all, he’s a great coach. I’m glad I came here. I’m absolutely 100 percent with him. He’s doing a great job coaching me right now.”
Usually, Nash’s tweets are upbeat. He frequently reaches out to Cowboys fans.
“Just keep believing n us.”
“People see me around campus dont be shock come up and say hi want some friends lol.”
“I dont get this class but the teacher is funny.”
Before the Missouri game, Nash urged Cowboys fans to produce a “white out.”
“All students attending the mizzou game tonight @ 6:30 we need your support please support the team by wearing white ( WHITE OUT)!!!!!!!!!!”
Trouble was, the team wore orange.
Nash’s correction didn’t come soon enough, with much of the student section showing up in white amid reports that the student union sold out of white shirts.
“ATTENTION all oklahoma state fans the white out has been changed to baylor home game everyone please wear orange tonight (ORANGE OUT)!!!!!!!”
All harmless, of course, right?
Most of the time.
“Right after the Baylor game, I knew I was going to get bad tweets,” said Nash, who scored six points in a 41-point loss. “I just can’t wait until that game comes back here, try to beat them.”
Meanwhile, Nash will keep taking things out on The Man.
“It’s probably life I’m talking about really,” he said. “I’m trying to have an uplifting life, keep God in my prayers.
“My mom motivates me all the time. I talk to my mom every night. And she tells me, ‘It’s going to get good if you keep God in your prayers.’”
