SEC ban social media site at games

Imagine walking into Gator Stadium this fall and watching Tim Tebow throwing a game winning pass at the end of overtime. How do you celebrate in today's age? After hugging everyone around you and doing the chomp, you would probably take out your phone and do one or more of the following:

* Take a picture and upload it to Twitpic or Facebook
* Update your Twitter status to say " Unbelievable Throw! Go Gators"
* Take a video and upload it to Facebook or YouTube.
Well, none if these are going to work.
Recently, the SEC released their policy to restrict the use of social media during any of their football games this fall. Part of the issue is $3 billion deal that CBS has with the conference over the next 15 years according to The St Petersburg Times that gives them the only "authorized" media coverage of all SEC games.
Here is yet another great usage for access facebook. If you are in a football game and must twitt, there is your way out!
