So why was Stephen Garcia suspended indefinitely from South Carolina football? The obvious scenario you've certainly envisioned by now -- partyin' -- has been confirmed by TheBigSpur.com's John Whittle and others. The story has Garcia arriving to a 7 pm ET South Carolina leadership event of some sort already drunk.
However, Garcia told the Associated Press that the suspension did not involve arrests, drugs, or alcohol. But a man can get a buzz off a significant supply of Robitussin and vanilla extract, let's recall.
More from athletic director Eric Hyman on Garcia's suspension:
Being a student-athlete at the University of South Carolina is a privilege, not a right. We have expectations for our student-athletes and we make them aware that there are consequences for their actions.
Stephen has exhibited behavior that is unacceptable for one of our student-athletes. Therefore, he has forfeited the privilege to participate in any football-related activity until further notice.
