It had been reported that the South Carolina Gamecocks let go of quarterback Stephen Garcia upon his failure of an alcohol test. That was apparently a violation of the terms of his reinstatement, which coach Steve Spurrier and athletic director Eric Hyman mentioned but didn't address in specifics.
Now a new report adds marijuana to the list of reported mistakes. Here's Jenn Brown sharing news obtained by Chris Low, one of ESPN's SEC bloggers:
And, yeah, we're starting to see exactly why Spurrier let a nearby newspaper columnist have it during a standard weekly press conference. Despite the coach's frustrations with Garcia, he clearly had a sort of stubborn affection for the quarterback. Seeing a young man throw away his last opportunity to use his talents for good would cause anybody to snap.
