September 18, 2012

Gamecock D.J. Swearinger has been suspended by the SEC for this weekend’s game against Missouri.

South Carolina free safety D.J. Swearinger has been suspended by the Southeastern Conference for a flagrant hit during Saturday’s 49-6 win over UAB.  Swearinger will be ineligible to play for the Gamecocks against Missouri.  The action is the result of a hit which occurred at the 5:46 mark in the third quarter. The action, according to the SEC, is in violation of Rule 9-1-4 of the NCAA Football Rule Book, which reads, “No player shall target and initiate contact to the head or neck area of a defenseless opponent with the helmet, forearm, elbow or shoulder.”
