AUSTIN, Texas — Texas Longhorn players have been off of Twitter for a little over a week and have announced they will continue to stay off of the social media platform for the entire season.
Concerning Twitter, Captain of the UT football team Malcolm Roach believes in "out of sight, out of mind" and said it's "healthier that way."
"It's the things on social media that you read, and you read it but you wouldn't even pay attention to it, but it's still in the back of your mind at the end of the day," said Roach. "So not even seeing that content is healthy for you."
Texas Football gets a lot of attention during the season, but this week especially ESPN's College GameDay is coming to town.
"As y'all know, we all got off of Twitter, that's where all the hype is coming from, the Twitter news and fans going crazy," said Joseph Ossai, Texas linebacker.
Watch the UT take on LSU on KVUE this Saturday at 6:30 p.m.
