What an idiot. Anyone who has taken summer classes at college know you CAN'T skip class. If you do, your basically missing the entire week.

Maybe Coach Spurrier needs to start every practice with a statement of rules . I must attend class , I will abide by the law , and I will not do drugs and ect.

I was thinking along the same lines.
I remember taking summer classes. Any student would tell you that you needed to be in class unless you were half dead or worse because the term was so short.

Unless you're a Gamecock football player. Then the standard rules, laws & punishments do not apply to you.

Anyone else read in The State online about Blakie's Mommy & Daddy were so upset because no one called them about his missing classes?

Are they serious?

Blake is a big boy now. A Second year Senior. I think he is old enough to handle his own short comings.
Would she make comments like this to an NFL coach? Time to cut the apron strings Mom.

Some "though love" is warranted here. No wonder this guy has a problem with accepting responsibility for his actions, the parents are still making excuses for HIS bad behavior. He has had one prior incident and now this, it is high time for him to "get his act together" .. Our daughter pulled a similar stunt years ago. We would never have thought of calling USC, we were too embarassed that we had not "finished our job" before sending her to college!! She got a good case of "get a job and pay your own extra tuition" costs not a lot of symathy from us. Try it Mitchells.. it might work wonders, it did for u1s

Might as well kick him off the team. He does not show any real talent anyway. Heck he should have been kicked off the team last year when he got arrested, but NO Spurrier could not do that because he would not have a quarterback and he would be losing. Shows what Spurrier cares about most, winning games.

Somehow I have the feeling that even that won't work. Maybe if they kept him locked in isolation until it's class time, practice time or game time Blake Mitchell would stay out of trouble.

As dumb as he seems to be, I think he should quit football practices and go to as many classes as he can.It seems a lot of football players are lacking in sensible brainpower.
