Screw USC.....I'll get a job with the NFL or is it the NAACP........Who wants to play on a team with a mascot that's a chicken!

Since: Feb 07

Go figure. He won't stay off the team for too long. Spurrier will bring him back after there's been a couple practices. I guess breaking the law doesn't constitute violating team rules or behavior. After all, they might be getting in trouble with the law, but they're getting publicity for their team.

Here we go again! It amazes me that Thomas is a thug even though the article never said what he had done. There are so many people out there that assume the worst. They must be a miserable bunch of people since they never see a positive side to anything. And, don't worry spanky, we don't want you anyway.

WHEN IS THIS EVER GONNA STOP??? Come on young men, get your heads screwed on STRAIGHT and REPRESENT your college with pride and dignity.... You have been choicen to represent The University of South Carolina.... One day USC Football will achieve greatness, but not until the players have some form of honor, respect and dignity in regard to the privilege that has been laid in front of them.

I find it somewhat funny that he will keep players that get in bar fights, vandalize cars, resist arrest - but he will get rid of anyone that violates "Team Rules"

I heard Spurrier kicked him off the team. Anyone else heard this? For Gamecocks Suck, 15-2. You barely beat a .500 team, and you lost your bowl game. Choke on that.

I love it.... let me guess what he did ;)

Also, will the city police arrest garcia for underage drinking at pavlovs? Will the NCAA cite the owner for providing a student athlete with what would be described as gifts?

This is so like Spurrier. I have always been told by a NFL player that played under Steve that he has racial issues, as Carlos did not make the news but yet suspended from the team, and this whit player made the news and the FBI is investagating but yet he is still on the team. USC will may have Spurrier but they have racial issues and they will never recruit any african american great athletes are ever go to the BCS Championship because their head coach have issues. I will pray for him. It's 2008 and we still have that slavery mentalality in South Carolina.

We may have to bring in the NAACP in this matter if equall justice is not serve soon, and I will be the first one to call and request that the NAACP go to USC to check out the circumstances. Carlos hold your head up and let noone deter your dream. Only man you fear is God, and all things are possible through him I know because I have tried him and he will never leave you or forsake you.

As if there wasn't enough crap with this team. USC will never be a power in the NCAA much less the SEC. There is no quality recruits that want to go to USC. The stigma of being a Gamecock is too much. I for one have been a Carolina fan for most of my life. I moved to New Orleans in 1990 and found out what a quality team looks like in LSU. After last year I am tired of waiting for next year.
