Spurrier says SC will accept potential penalties

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)—South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says the team won’t protest potential penalties it may get from the NCAA if it finds players violated rules.

Gamecocks tight end Weslye Saunders has spoken with NCAA investigators about his attendance at a party in South Beach this past May. He is also among several players told by Spurrier to end their stays at a local hotel and find other living arrangements.

Spurrier said Wednesday he had no information about what the NCAA might do. But historically, Spurrier said players who are found to have received extra benefits sit out a game or two before they can play again.
