A mini-controversy between USC football coach Steve Spurrier and former players DJ Swearinger and Justice Cunningham had Twitter humming late in the week. Fans and sports talk show hosts chimed in on the issue which centered on the absences of Swearinger and Cunningham from a post pro-day receptions at the home of the university president last week.
Spurrier banned both players from using the team’s weight room at Williams-Brice Stadium and they took to Twitter to express their views.
After Saturday’s scrimmage, Spurrier expressed his view.
In their tweets, the players proclaimed they were not told until pro-day about the function, which they said was non-mandatory, and Cunningham pointed out he had already made plans to spend time with his father whom he hadn’t seen in a year.
