NCAA investigating South Carolina

By ESPN.com staff

South Carolina received formal notification Thursday that the NCAA is investigating its football program, according to a story by the Associated Press.

The letter of inquiry doesn't specify any potential violations but could signal weeks or months of uncertainty for the team.

The NCAA has questioned South Carolina tight end Weslye Saunders about an agent-hosted party in Miami. Saunders and starting left tackle Jarriel King were among several players asked to move out of a Columbia hotel after questions were raised over unpaid bills and the rates the players were being charged.
