    PULLMAN -- Cougars football players were banned from using Twitter by Washington State head coach Mike Leach Tuesday evening after a series of messages ascribed to players on the social media platform were brought to his attention earlier in the day.

    “Twitter is now banned around here, so don’t expect anything on Twitter,” Leach said after  practice. “Twitter’s banned and quite frankly, if after today you see anything on Twitter from our team -- and I don’t care if it says, ‘I love life’ -- I would like to see it because I will suspend them.”
