Akeem Auguste suspended indefinitely

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said after Saturday night's 38-14 victory against S.C. State that sophomore starting cornerback and punt returner Akeem Auguste will miss at least the next three games for violating a “team and university policy.”

“He's indefinitely suspended – we’ll wait and see the outcome,” Spurrier said.

Just another dumb thing, not sure the full story or why but regardless it is just dumb.  The kids must remember that they are part of a team.  If they make a dumb mistake it impacts the entire team.  It is unfortunate for Auguste and for the team with the meat of the SEC schedule ahead.

C.C. Whitlock replaced Auguste in the starting lineup. Stephon Gilmore, the other starting cornerback, filled in for Auguste as the punt returner.
