Default Spurrier bans some players from weight room

http://www.gogamecocks.com/2013/04/0...on-weight.html

Players not allowed in weight room after not going to a dinner with Pastides.

Quote:
About a dozen senior Gamecock football players are working their way back into head coach Steve Spurrier's good graces. All they have to do is write a letter.

A little more than a week ago, a reception for the football team was held at University President Harris Pastides' house and Spurrier promised his players would be there.

But some senior players did not attend. So Spurrier banned those players from the weight room until they wrote a letter of apology to President Pastides.


"It was a little embarrassing for me," said Spurrier at the scrimmage Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium.
"Hopefully they'll all do it and we'll all be happy again," he said. "But it was a bad thing that happened."

So I'm curious, what is your opinion on this and what do you think of DJ Swearinger's comments about former players on twitter?

There was more to the story than DJ tweeted.

Default Re: Spurrier bans some players from weight room

The fact that they didnt show up for a dinner with the president that was planned for them is pretty bad, but the way DJ and Justice responded on twitter was extremely immature. They should of kept it in house and had personal discussions with Spurrier. Spurrier has actually been very productive in getting former players to return to USC, so Swearinger is wrong about that.

Yep...miss an important dinner, get disciplined and maybe learn a few things.
DJ has the character of someone that will learn from this and move on. All about growing up & stuff happens.

Default Re: Spurrier bans some players from weight room

I'm glad the whole story is finally out there, as for the tweet by DJ...that was about as smooth as trying to push a fat, pea-nutty turd past an inflamed hemorrhoid.

To not show up to a dinner that was catered for you and your fellow seniors by The Head Coach and the University President.....That's not Swagg, that's just stupid. I can see why the HBC was p.o'ed. This Senior Class has done more in the past few years than ant other Senior class in the History of SC football. The seniors should embrace that, and Spurrier is proud of what theses guys have accomplished yet the guys can't attend a dinner as a sort of a send off "thank you" then whine about it on Twitter, That is embarrassing.

Yet, if the fact is that the HBC is over it and things are fine now, great.

In response to that comment, Lattimore did not go visit that other guy because he was in the thick of rehab.

The issue wasn't just that they didn't go but that they said they were going to come and then didn't. Other guys didn't show up by they said up front they weren't coming. I think the point Spurrier was trying to make was about honoring your commitments.
