Carolina Falls 5-4 To Vanderbilt At SEC Tournament
When asked why he wouldn’t address the back-and-forth that has taken place for years between SEC coaches, Spurrier bluntly said, “I haven’t won enough games to banter with anybody right now. So when you’re 7-5 and 7-6, which is about what we’ve averaged, you just try to worry about your team.”
Don't get soft on us Coach....we need the "fire" to come from you to get the team juiced about the 2009 season!
Hard to spin this....

Casey Rihn, reserve 2nd baseman on the Carolina baseball team has been kicked off the team after his altercation in five points this past weekend. In a limited back up roll for the yardcocks this season Rihn batted .321.
It looks like the cops did a pretty good number on his face. Nobody seems to be comparing this to the Kevin Young situation back in the Fall of last year.
Some News updates for ya today ---
- Seth Emerson provides a Dominique Archie and Downey Downey update HERE.
- Joe Person has a update HERE on Notre Dame cornerback Gary Gray, the Columbia native and one-time Gamecock commitment.
- Brad Edwards, former All-American football player at USC, was introduced Monday as the new athletics director at Newberry College.
- Person also writes about some members of the USC football team HERE. Within that post are some updates which I have copied below as they give a quick update on some floating topics related to the USC football team that LOHD has covered in the past....
–Suspended cornerback C.C. Whitlock, who enrolled early in ’08, has to do well in summer school (perhaps as well as straight-As) to be eligible in the fall.
–Defensive tackle Ladi Ajiboye, who is also suspended, appears to be in better shape. Even if both players are eligible, Steve Spurrier said both would be suspended for an undetermined number of games.
–There are others on the bubble, but as of now USC has two signees it does not expect to qualify – South Pointe receiver Charles Holmes and Beaufort defensive lineman Duane Chisolm. Holmes likely will be placed in a junior college, while Chisolm will either go the JUCO or prep school route.
–Free safety Chris Culliver is recovering from his April shoulder surgery, although Ellis Johnson believes it will be mid-June before Culliver is cleared to resume physical activities.
–Fifth-year offensive lineman Lemuel Jeanpierre had minor knee surgery to clean out loose cartilage from his spring injury.
