To BAN or not to BAN? That is the question Ohio State coach Urban Meyer needs to consider once again.
Meyer apparently considered banning his team from social media back in January when several players let us in on that fact through…social media, but Meyer stated that he had not enacted a ban but instead informed his players on the correct way to use the sites.
Obviously Jones skipped that class.
Ohio State freshman quarterback Cardale Jones:
Why should we have to go to class if we came here to play FOOTBALL, we ain’t come to play SCHOOL, classes are pointless.
To make this clear, the freshman quarterback has played ZERO snaps at Ohio State. That’s not to say that he won’t ever play, it’s just to make the point that he hasn’t played and this is what he is Tweeting about.
As part of its NCAA sanctions that include a 2012 postseason ban, Ohio State recently informed the NCAA Committee on Infractions that part of its new compliance efforts is an emphasis on making sure athletes used social media smartly.
There’s a reason they are called STUDENT athletes.
While a lot of people believe these kids should get compensated, and I am not going to argue against that, but a free college education or part of a free college education is a pretty important deal. Not all of these kids will become NFL stars and not all of them will play football at any level after they leave their respective universities.
Attend classes young man so when your career ends you have something to fall back on.
HEY KIDS! THINK BEFORE YOU HIT SEND!
