    AAargh, Texas Tech football coach Mike Leach has banned his players from having Twitter accounts.

       The move comes one day after of his linebacker's dissed the coach for showing up late to a meeting the day after the unranked Red Raiders lost 29-28 to then No. 17-ranked Houston.
     
    Leach announced the ban during Monday's Big 12 Conference coaches conference call.
     
    According to the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal, linebacker Marlon Williams asked on his Kos39 Twitter account Sunday evening why he was still in a meeting room when "the head coach can't even be on time." That tweet has since been deleted.
     
    Offensive lineman Brandon Carter, whom the pirate-loving Leach suspended indefinitely (made him walk the plank) on Sunday for violation of team rules, also had a page on Twitter but as of late Sunday it no longer existed.
     
    After Saturday night's loss to the Cougars, Carter tweeted: "This is not how I saw our season."
