Default Syvelle Newton to join staff?

I'm assuming he means as a GA, but Newton just tweeted that he has met with SOS and is ready to join our staff come spring. Anybody got more details beyond his tweet?

Great player and glad he was a Gamecock, but hide the laptops.

He was a great player, but I'm not sure I like this move.

Wasn't he one of those in the laptop issue? Wasn't he the one that was on Beale St after the Liberty Bowl screaming about how Spurrier ruined his career for moving him to DB? No offense, but he's one of those guys that I throw in the "Old Carolina" pile. We've turned a corner to get those type of players out of our program. I don't like bringing them (even if just one) back to be a coach.

I'm sure Spurrier has considered all of the above, and if he still feels that this is a good move I don't think we should worry about it.

Eh, I don't know him personally, but I do know he got moved around so much in his career that he never got the opportunity he should have in the NFL. If he had started at WR he would have gone on to become one of the best to ever have played here (IMO). However, our QB situation was so messed up he had to keep coming back to it.

In terms of the laptop issue, I don't think he stole one of the laptops. What he did do was take a life-sized cutout of himself that he claimed was told he could take, so if that's the case no big deal.

Six University of South Carolina football players are charged in connection with the theft of computer and video equipment and framed photographs from Williams-Brice Stadium two months ago.
Five of the players have been released on their own recognizance after a Thursday night bond hearing.
The sixth player, tight end Brian Brownlee, was arrested Friday. A judge granted Brownlee a personal recognizance bond and permission to travel to Atlanta to train for the NFL. Brownlee graduated in December.
The arrest warrant states that Brownlee was videotaped on November 22nd taking two laptop editors, valued at $4000 each, and two computer projectors, valued at $850 and $1675, and that Brownlee confessed to taking them. The combined items being more than $10,500, which resulted in a charge of grand larceny over $5000.
The players charged:

There's a difference between players that do what they're told and those that do everything they can to help the team.

Syvelle played where he was told to play, but he did NOT do everything he could to help the team win. He did NOT want to play DB and made it a point to prove that on the field. I couldn't tell you how many times he ran straight at a player and the guy made one step to the left or right and went to the house. It happened, I believe, twice against Clemson that year.

Yes, he moved to whatever position the coaching staffed asked him to move to, but he did NOT do everything he could to make this team better.

If he's one of your favorite players then keep your garnet goggles on ... that's fine. Still doesn't change that he was all about him and not the team (again, by what HE said in Memphis)

And I used one game ... that was NOT the only time he missed any tackles ... I believe he was accountable for at least one of the huge TD plays Houston hit on us just before the half in the Liberty Bowl too ... but then again ... I guess missread after missread after bad angle after diving for a shoe strings means he gave it his all.

Spurrier has always been complimentary of Newton. For awhile he was saying that no one ran the offense better than he did. I don't buy any of this dissension stuff unless someone can produce some evidence. Everything I've seen says he did his best to help the team and the staff appreciated his efforts.

This would seem the more sensible position to take on the matter. I don't have any idea about what Syvelle Newton may or may not have been yelling on Beale St after the Liberty Bowl.

Who said anything about being one of my favorite players? What I saw from Syvelle Newton was a player that played wherever the coaches asked him to play...and they asked him to play several different positions..and at times seemed to be one of the only players out there who was actually trying. The problem with your issue with him is he was not a defensive back in college, but he was trying to play one to help the team. His technique was poor but his athletic ability made up for that some. But he was better than other options we had at the time. But...yea i'm sure he was trying to tank so USC would lose...

He was the one who had the big sack on a blitz against Clemson that led to the missed fg by dean in that same game.
