Hyman No Longer Blocking 'Cocks Corner

(And the answer is “Yes”, I giggled like Beavis and/or Butthead while typing the above headline.)

A little less than three weeks after being cleared of a trespassing charge, South Carolina cornerback C.C. Whitlock has been cleared by athletic director Eric Hyman to return to the Gamecocks football program, The State newspaper is reporting.

Unfortunately for Whitlock, the same paper reports, the defensive back has yet to be cleared by the man who ultimately holds the key to his football fate at the university.

“His situation resolved in the court system. So therefore, based on that, he was released to football and to academics,” Hyman said. “They take whatever approach they feel necessary from this point going forward.”

The “they” Hyman refers to, of course, is head coach Steve Spurrier.

Spurrier suspended Whitlock indefinitely shortly after his arrest, and stated publicly the CB would miss at least one game should he be reinstated.

The fact that Whitlock missed a good portion of spring practice due to academic issues before his arrest in May will likely play a role in when Spurrier lifts the suspension. 

And if he ultimately misses just the one game Spurrier spoke of shortly after the run-in with the law.
