Boise State, NMS, Bans Twitter

New Mexico State coach DeWayne Walker doesn’t see his decision to ban his team from using Twitter this season as an issue about control. For Walker, it’s about protection. “You’ve got 105 guys on your football team,” he said Thursday at the team’s media day. “It’s not a matter of not trusting guys. Guys may say things and do things that can affect not only our football team but our university and not even mean it.” Walker showed he was serious about the ban a short time later, declaring on his Twitter account that he’s finished until December. … Walker’s decision comes after Boise State coach Chris Petersen, pictured, banned Twitter for his players/Associated Press.

Question: Are coaches Chris Petersen (Boise State) and DeWayne Walker (New Mexico State) being paranoid by banning players from using Twitter during the season?
