Mike Slive and the SEC brought it’s suspension hammer to work again Monday, this time swinging it upon South Carolina’s DJ Swearinger, who was suspended for the Missouri game this coming weekend. There was much ******** and moaning last week when Trae...
South Carolina's D.J. Swearinger has been suspended for the USC/Missouri game on Sept. 22nd for hit on UAB player that occurred in the third quarter this past weekend.
After three games, the stars of the offense and defense, respectively—Aaron Murray and Jarvis Jones—are right where they should be. According to ESPN.com, early analysis on both Jones and Murray is that both are likely to go in the first three rounds (Murray in the third and Jones in the first), but there is still enough good football left to be played that the verdict is still...
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The SEC has suspended South Carolina free safety D.J. Swearinger for a game after his hit on a defenseless UAB receiver.

Steve Spurrier wonders why the SEC saw fit to suspend D.J. Swearinger for a hit that was eerily similar to the one his tight end, Justin Cunningham, received at Vanderbilt in game one. Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier said he would talk about the suspension at his news conference Tuesday. Spurrier pointed out Sunday that a Vanderbilt player was given a 15-yard penalty but no suspension...
Georgia sits at 3-0 after torching Buffalo, Mizzou, and Florida Atlantic in the opening weeks of the college football season. And while each of those games had their moments of head-scratching frustration, the general consensus is as follows: the offensive line is better than expected, the run game is as good as its ever been, and the defense is just about ready to hit its stride...
ATHENS - Georgia QB Aaron Murray meets with reporters about the game with Vandy.

SEC fans like to think of their league as a mini-NFL. Apparently, that extends to the commissioner's office, as the conference brass have taken it upon themselves to begin issuing suspensions for what are deemed over-the-line hits.
Last week, Ole Miss defensive back Trae Elston was suspended for the Rebels' game against Texas as punishment for a play the week...
After three straight weeks of watching the Georgia Bulldogs put 40 or more points on the board and, essentially, shut down opposing offenses in the second half of games, it’s easy to get ahead of yourself and start believing this team is “the one” that’s going all the way. However, it’s a safer bet to keep things in perspective and understand that Georgia has yet to truly...

Spurrier said Tuesday Shaw would start Saturday when the seventh-ranked Gamecocks (3-0, 1-0 SEC) face Missouri. He also didn't take too much issue with the league's one...
