STARKVILLE, Miss. — Mississippi State coach Rick Stansbury has banned his team from using Twitter after players posted critical comments on the social networking website following Wednesday's 75-61 loss to Alabama.
Starting guard Ravern Johnson posted "starting to see why people Transfer you can play the minutes but not getting your talents shown because u watching someone else wit the ball the whole game," according to The Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger.
Both Johnson and forward Renardo Sidney also criticized fans, according to the newspaper. Both Twitter accounts have since been deleted.
In a written statement, Stansbury explains his decision, saying "some young men just don't understand once they put something out there for everyone to see, there is no taking it back."
