Stephen Garcia Denies He Was Suspended For Arriving Drunk At Team Event

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'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.
