On OU receiver Kenny Stills criticizing OSU receiver Justin Blackmon on Twitter:
Frankly, I'm not sure why these guys continue to think that what they put on Twitter might not come back to bite them. If they don't have a private account, their comments are public and out there for the world to see. I know that coaches talk to players about being careful. If memory serves me, Bob Stoops or someone in power at OU even had a talking to with Stills earlier this year about Twitter. Stills cooled it for a bit, but now, he's back posting fairly regularly.
Here's the thing: I know a lot of people talk about banning players from Twitter. If I'm a coach or AD, I would think really seriously about it. As a member of the media, though, I love it. And not for the scandals. Let me explain. You really get to see better who these players are. What do they think about certain things. What are they interested in outside of their sport. Sometimes, the answer is that they don't care about much else and don't have interesting opinions on much.
