Starting WR suspended for academic reasons
Thomas will be suspended for at least three weeks because of issues related to class attendance and other academic matters, coach Lou Holtz said Tuesday.
"People who come to school here are going to be student-athletes,'' Holtz said.
Sophomore Noah Whiteside will move into the starting lineup, Holtz said.
The 25th-ranked Gamecocks (4-1) play Mississippi at home on Saturday.
