Hot Cougar Action: Twitter banning and more

If you are a Washington State football player, you probably didn't find this article via a link on Twitter.

As you've probably heard by now, Mike Leach banned WSU football players from using Twitter.

While some are worried about what the football players are missing out on, fear not. The football players will most likely turn to the basketball players to do their tweeting for them. Unfortunately for those players, there is a good chance Leach will be onto this plan and ban the basketball players from Twitter as well.

With both groups banned, the players will turn to the baseball team to handle the tweeting. Leach may think something is up, but will most likely let it slide and everyone will end up with some delicious mango.
