Stephen Garcia has been suspended for "the first portion" of South Carolina Gamecocks spring practice, according to the Post and Courier's Travis Haney. ESPN's Chris Low describes that portion as being the opening week.
This one appears to be for missing team hotel curfew in Atlanta while preparing for the Chick-Fil-A Bowl, according to Low. Teammates Andrew Clifford and Mike Triglia also broke team rules during their time in Georgia. Clifford joined Garcia in missing Tuesday's practices, according to Haney.
Garcia has made a custom of missing bits of spring practices due to breaking various rules, doing it for three straight years now. Though he's a capable quarterback and a big reason for the team's 2010 SEC East title, his decision-making has been the subject of much derision both on and off the field, with occasional Steve Spurrier benchings, intentional safeties, and whirlwinds of turnovers complementing his suspensions.
