Shaq Roland no longer with South Carolina

The embattled wide receiver for South Carolina did not make the trip to Shreveport for the Independence Bowl and it seems he is off the team —- and for good this time. He has missed several games over the past couple years for unspecified violations of team policies, and this week he didn't show up to practices or team meetings. He will either declare for the 2015 NFL Draft or move down a level in college so he can play right away. He was third on the team in receiving yards (336) and receiving touchdowns (four), and  fourth in receptions (26).
