Stephen Garcia's brief suspension from South Carolina football spring practice apparently didn't do the trick. Despite coach Steve Spurrier's admission that he just can't stay mad at the young pup, athletic director Eric Hyman has announced Garcia will be suspended indefinitely from the football program.
No specifics yet on whether this is explicitly related to the previous charge of cavorting before the 2010 Chick-fil-A Bowl, as Hyman terms Garcia's misdeeds as having "exhibited behavior that is unacceptable for one of our student-athletes." Well, all right then.
While Garcia has made a habit of being excused from spring practice for one reason or another, this is a whole new level. South Carolina was already expected to go through something of a QB controversy this spring with Connor Shaw also in the running, but the 2011 starter may have just been named.
