Just as a Schaefer's is the one beer to have when you're having more than one, Garcia seemed the one quarterback to have when you were having more than one also. After all, someone else was needed to toss balls to receivers during the Spring.
Fifth-year senior quarterback Stephen Garcia has been dismissed from the football team, two sources told The State on Tuesday.Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier would not address the news when reached by The State. Garcia was informed of the decision Tuesday morning.
Cheers Esteban!Athletics director Eric Hyman is expected in a statement said:“Being a student-athlete at the University of South Carolina is a privilege, not a right, and we remind all of our student-athletes that there are consequences for their actions. For Stephen to return to and remain with the football squad this fall, we agreed on several established guidelines. Unfortunately, he has not been able to abide by those guidelines and has therefore forfeited his position on the roster. We wish him the best of luck as he moves forward in life.”In that same statment, Spurrier said: “We are all saddened that this has occurred. We all feel like we’ve given Stephen numerous opportunities to be a student-athlete here at South Carolina. Obviously, he has chosen not to follow the guidelines of his reinstatement contract. We wish him the best.”
So...cats on their 9th life all around the world salute the man who pulled off College Football's greatest feat...receiving both fake and actual discipline from the ol' Ball Coach. Meanwhile, Connor Shaw...chicken farmers everywhere turn their lonely eyes to you.
