Good stuff. Colleges really need to cut down on this crap. Anyone know what the UA athletic department policy is on these social networking sites?

If you rely on bulletin board info for motivation, you are not a focused team

Just an aside. So far twitter's for basketball players have been very very team focused both on and off the court and very very basic/innocent.
Stuff bout playing vid games together, eating together, how sore they are, how much the really enjoy the staff and practice. Team seems really together already. "Worst" of it seems to be some pics but I have never ever seen any alcohol in any pic even pics with chicks and friends at "party's"
Been impressed with that so far. I'm guessing a few lectures have already been given regarding facebook and twitter.

A Twitter message sent by UCLA freshman Randall Carroll to a top high school recruit complained about Bruins offensive coordinator Norm Chow and referred to him with a racial epithet.

The post, from the account of OCiAM, dated Oct. 22, referred to the Bruins' last three games before Saturday and read, "man oregon, stanford and cal should have been easy wins ,, but [expletive] thys [racial slur] norm chow dnt be trustin us ,, so it is what it is."

Carroll directed the tweet to the attention of La Caņada St. Francis High running back Dietrich Riley. It also could be seen by the public.

"I was frustrated, tired of losing," Carroll said Saturday after UCLA's 27-13 loss to Arizona. "I wasn't trying disrespect Norm Chow in any way. . . . He was one of the reasons I came here. I was just saying I didn't feel like he trusted us, because we are such a young bunch. I wasn't downgrading his coaching."

Carroll talked with Coach Rick Neuheisel and will meet Chow at some point.

"Coach Neuheisel said we need to watch what we say in twitters," Carroll said.

"I was just talking to my friend and I put it in words I shouldn't say."

Neuheisel said after the game, "Randall has already said to me that he didn't mean it. We have to educate our guys how to use the technology."

However, the coach at that point did not know about the racial remark.

Later, he called reporters back to say, "It has come to my attention that there was a derogatory word used that, unfortunately, is used too often in today's culture. It is absolutely unacceptable and I will speak to Randall on the flight home."

Riley said he didn't see Carroll's message, but he confirmed that he and Carroll communicate using Twitter.

The message about Chow was sent to Riley's site at 8:39 p.m. Riley sent three tweets to "OCiAM" on Oct. 22, at 8:03, 8:13 and 8:53. The last read, "yall need to start throwing the damn ball!!!"

The "OC" in the Twitter address is believed to stand for "Olympic Champion," dating to when Carroll won a track and field championship at the Junior Olympics. The account was deactivated Saturday.

Carroll also was among four UCLA players suspended for the Kansas State game for violating unspecified team rules.

Who wants to tell the kid that "downgrading" and "denigrating" are not the same word?
