Weslye Saunders suspended...Temporarily for now...

The 'ol ball coach is vetting out some discipline these days. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier announced Monday night that star Tight End Weslye Saunders has been "temporarily suspended" for apparently violating some team rules.

We probably should add here that Saunders is a part of the NCAA investigation into the South Beach player/agent party, but Spurrier was adamant that was not the reason for the suspension.

The Ball Coach also had to clarify a situation that apparently popped up where Saunders' was part of a group of players living in an area hotel. Hmmm....hadn't heard about that one.

In the meantime, Columbia's thestate.com tries to make sense of it all...read it RIGHT HERE

This, well, isn't looking very good for the Gamecocks. Saunders seems to have a rather lengthy list of questionable decisions here, even if the South Beach incident isn't true.

He was supposed to be the best receiver on the team this season, on the watch list for the Mackey award and a surefire NFL draft pick.

Saunders may still pan out that way, Spurrier was emphatic that it was for a "Team Rules Violation" and wouldn't elaborate as to how long the suspension will be in place. We guess that a peek at the starting lineup or guys who dress for next weeks season opener against Southern Mississippi will be the answer to that question.

Here is sound from the 'ol ball coach his ownself....Thanks WLTX-TV:
