To Ban or Not To Ban? Education is the Answer

Leave it to the Head Ball Coach to cause a stir.

Over the weekend, South Carolina head football coach Steve Spurrier announced his players were banned from using Twitter, and a firestorm of opinion - from all sides - has ensued.

That was it.

End of discussion ... as far as Spurrier is concerned.
