Mike Leach lifts ban on WSU football players using Twitter

What all WSU football players are doing right now, probably. - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Our long national nightmare is over.

We wondered the other day what was going on when offensive lineman Jake Rodgers suddenly returned to Twitter -- after all, Mike Leach had banned his players from using the social media platform back in October.

It appears we have our answer.

Apparently, that's a text message from WSU that went to all the football players. So, if you're a person who likes to follow football players on Twitter, get excited! Here's a sampling of the sorts of things you have to look forward to!

OK, that last one was pretty funny, actually.

Thus concludes (we hope) this whole ridiculous drama surrounding WSU football and the use of Twitter. As we suspected all along, Leach's ban wasn't permanent, and you now once again have unfettered access to mundane musings of your favorite Cougar football players.

At least one player is thankful for the second chance.

In case you're wondering, Brooks turned his account back to private shortly after this. So nobody can blame him if this goes sideways.
