Gamecocks Practice Wednesday
March 24, 2010
The University of South Carolina Gamecock football squad conducted its seventh practice of the spring at the Bluff Road practice fields Wednesday afternoon. The squad worked out for about two hours in near perfect weather conditions, sporting helmets and shorts.
"We had a good practice and will practice again tomorrow from 4-6," said head coach Steve Spurrier following the workout.
Coach Spurrier was asked about the Black caucus issue that developed today. "I don't have all the details, but that's not under my control," said the Head Ball Coach. "Worry about what you can control is what Coach (John) Wooden used to say."
Coach Spurrier confirmed that reserve quarterback Aramis Hillary is no longer on the team. "Aramis is probably going to transfer down a division where he has a chance to play next year. I think it's a smart idea. He wants to play and we wish him the best. I'm not sure what school yet."
Athletics director Eric Hyman issued this statement in regards to the Black caucus: "This is an unfortunate situation but it is not an athletics issue. It is a legislative matter - something over which we have absolutely no control. I am hopeful that the legislators can work this out among themselves."
The Gamecocks will return to the practice fields on Thursday afternoon.
