Andrea Gause, the firey tempramental athlete and cousin of George Gause will remain on the team. He met for a second time with the Players' Unity Council and then met with Coach Lou Holtz earlier today.
Gause and new coach Ron Cooper had words with one another last Saturday during practice and the result was Andrea walking off the field. When Coach Cooper asked where he was several of the defensive backs covered for Gause, telling Coach Cooper that the "offense had called for him" but later it was discovered that Gause had gone back to the locker room.
It was determined today that Gause will no longer work with the secondary and will instead work with the wide receivers.
As was suggested in a Rooster Report earlier in the week there were some indications that Gause may have had some personal problems. The personal problem as we understand it now was that Gause did not want to be a defensive back. He wanted to be a wide receiver and felt he could best contribute to the team at that position. Therefore, the move was made.
In other news, Phil Kornblut of the South Carolina News Network is reporting that offensive lineman Gurminder Thind (6-5 286) of Mississauga, ONT has qualified and is hoping to enroll at USC in August.
