Waiting for South Carolina Gamecocks QB Stephen Garcia to be reinstated has been kind of like knowing months in advance what you're getting for Christmas, but only if Christmas comes on a random date. Wait no longer: Garcia is back.
Garcia was originally suspended an entire calendar season ago, leading to instant Steve Spurrier insight that lasted through SEC Media Days. HBC's famously hate-love-hate relationship with all of his non-Heisman quarterbacks flourished throughout the endeavor. Garcia returned on a probationary basis in May, but then radio Columbia went dark on the matter.
With their star (yes, actually!) quarterback at the helm, the Cocks will be favored to win the SEC East. Wait, you say they already were favored to win the SEC East? It's almost like everybody knew this day would come here sooner rather than later.
