Back in October, Mike Leach handed down an edict that banned WSU football players from using Twitter. Since then, we've had nary a tweet from a still-eligible athlete.
Which made this little thing from Monday night somewhat ... curious?

Of course, this raised some eyebrows:
@bward09wsu im not at liberty to discuss that information yet. it would create a national security issue.— jake rodgers (@jakerodgers_69) May 14, 2013
This prompts a number of natural questions.
Has Rodgers quit the team? He had a rough 2012 and missed the spring, but we haven't heard any word of him transferring -- as someone noted to me, he has his number in his Twitter handle.
Has Leach lifted his Twitter ban? Again, nothing has been announced, and we haven't seen something amounting to a stampede of players back to Twitter.
Is Rodgers just crazy? Well ... he did/does have a spectacular mullet, so I wouldn't put anything past him.
Perhaps the biggest question?
WHY IN THE WORLD DO I CARE RIGHT NOW?
Oh yeah. Offseason.
EDIT, 7:24 a.m.: As noted by WSU fan Joe Baker, it appears Ivan McLennan is active on Twitter. McLennan is a junior college transfer who enrolled for spring semester and apparently never stopped tweeting. Sooooo ..... ?
