Some Ohio State Players Said Meyer Didn't Ban Twitter


Hours after some Ohio State football players tweeted that coach Urban Meyer banned the team from using Twitter on Tuesday, other players said no such rule was in place.

Earlier in the day, tight ends Jake Stoneburner and Reid Fragel said on Twitter that the new rules Meyer implemented involved disabling their accounts.

Later in the day, Fragel tweeted that "the whole twitter thing wasn't exactly true."

Cornerback Bradley Roby also tweeted that Meyer "never told us we can't have twitter."

Several newspapers reported the Twitter ban, including the Columbus Dispatch and USA Today.

Backup running back Carlos Hyde took criticism from coaches and fans after he tweeted about his lack of playing time after an October win at Illinois.  Dozens of other players have Twitter accounts.

Ohio State's 2011-12 season finished on Monday at the Gator Bowl in Jacksonville in a 24-17 loss to the Florida Gators.
