A profantiy laced Twitter tirade is rarely the way to show a coach that you are committed to a program. So it should come as no surprise that Mississippi State dismissed guard DJ Gardner from the program for repeated conduct detrimental to the team as described in this AP excerpt below:
Gardner, a 6-foot-7 guard from Okolona, Miss., was expected to be redshirted this season. The freshman apparently wasn’t happy with that decision, posting profanity-laced remarks on his Twitter account, according to The Clarion-Ledger.
Stansbury had banned his players from using the social messaging website last season after Ravern Johnson used Twitter to question his role on the team.
The ban was lifted after the season. Stansbury hasn’t said if it will return.
