On Friday, Freshman JayVaughn Pinkston, soph Dom Cheek, and walk-on Dallas Ouano all posted tweets along the line of "Goodbye". Ouano’s, was the most telling; Goodbye twitter, see you in April. None of the current 7 Wildcats who are on Twitter have tweeted since

This doesn't really make any sense to me. I don't really know what the university thinks they're going to get from not allowing these kids to utilize media? Are they afraid the players might say something to embarrass them? If that's the case, you better make sure they're also banned from being interviewed by CBS after a game as well.

Nah, you wouldn't do that though would you? Because CBS pays for the right to have players speak their mind. If the guys wants to do it on their own... well we can't have that.

Disappointing move from Nova here.
