It was announced today that the Miami Hurricanes Football team must deactivate their twitter accounts by 2:30pm ET.  The Miami football program has requested this of its players as an attempt to limit distractions and start to focus. It is almost no surprise that this comes right after the horrible 36-24 lose to Ohio State over the weekend. Jacory Harris or @JacoryHarris12 threw four interceptions during the OSU game. Let’s see how he does  this weekend when he can’t tweet us his Raiders over-alls.

The bigger question here: Is this a new trend in College sports?? How distracting is Social Networking… turning normal kids and athletes into local celebrities.
