Spurrier suspends starter Saunders


(Alliteration!  It’s fun for the whole family!)

In the post just below this one, we noted that backup quarterback Reid McCollum has decided to transfer from South Carolina.

Now comes word that another offseason mini-annoyance has hit the Gamecocks.

According to The State, starting tight end Weslye Saunders has been indefinitely suspended from the program by head coach Steve Spurrier.

No specific was given other than the ever-popular “undisclosed team reasons”.

Saunders was third on the team last season with 32 receptions and fourth with 353 yards.
