Steve Spurrier On Stephen Garcia Suspension: 'If He's Back, He's Back'

Steve Spurrier commented after South Carolina football practice on the Wednesday news of QB Stephen Garcia’s suspension. The Post and Courier’s Travis Haney collected quite a few very Steve Spurrier quotes on the matter. Here are just three of them, but you should go read all the rest:

We are where we are. If he’s back, he’s back. If he’s not back, really it’s same thing as maybe guy getting hurt, guy going pro. Players come and go, as we all know. This incident should never have happened, but it did. This is where we are. We only throw 18 to 20 times a game, anyway.

Spurrier and Garcia have had one of college football’s weirdest relationships for years now, from the coach benching the passer to publicly casting doubt upon his assertions to referring to him like he’s some Chris Farley character.
