Dabo Swinney wants social media to get off his lawn

Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney Will Not Attend Fundraiser for Anti-Gay Group

When college football season rolls around, fans go nuts and start gathering on social media unlike any other time during the season. But while the fans flock to social media to talk about games and troll their opponents, the players involved in everything we're all talking about aren't a part of the fun.

College football coaches love to ban social media during the season,

According to USA Today, Clemson is the latest college team that will not be allowed to use social media this year.

"It's good that we shut it down," [said lineman Eric] Mac Lain, who as @mr_clemson has 2,098 Twitter followers. "I love interacting with people and it's a great way to build our brand, but during the season you don't need any of that. When something bad happens, people are going to come at you from all angles, which is unfortunate. You don't need that negativity."


It's hard to determine if this has any effect on a player's success during the season or not, and it's hardly going to keep them out of trouble if that's the defense of these kinds of decisions. College football players are young kids who will always find trouble if it's out there, and telling them they can't go on Facebook or Twitter isn't going to make them any more efficient than they're already going to be.

Don't tell that to Dabo Swinney though, or he might take away your phone and tell you he's unplugging the dial-up connection, since he's so with the times.
