Ohio State lifts Twitter ban during Urban Meyer press conferences
Ohio State caused a big to-do on Monday when athletic department officials informed the assembled media that they would not be allowed to use Twitter during coach Urban Meyer’s press conferences.
Needless to say, this policy was not met with much enthusiasm. (Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal has a well-thought-out take.)
To no one’s surprise, a day later the Buckeyes had a change of heart (insert Urban Meyer joke here) and rescinded the policy, according to this tweet from the student newspaper, The Lantern:
