South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia has been indefinitely suspended from the football program. This from the University of South Carolina.
Athletic director Eric Hyman announced the suspension Wednesday afternoon. Hyman said in a statement that Garcia exhibited "unacceptable" behavior for a university student-athlete and would not take part in any football activities until further notice.
It was said that it was not alcohol or drug related, nor did it involve any arrest; at least this is what Garcia told The Associated Press. This is Garcia's fifth suspension and second this spring since coming to South Carolina in January 2007.
He was suspended earlier this spring for his missing curfew in the bowl game loss to Florida State.
Hyman said that Steve Spurrier would provide more details to the press following the scheduled practice on Wednesday.
Is this a fifth strike and you're out scenario? We may not know as Spurrier may play his cards close to vest and say the suspension is indefinite and leave it at that.
The loss of Garcia would certainly throw a monkey wrench into the offensive plans of the Gamecocks this season should it last the whole season.
This would mean that sophomore Connor Shaw may be the starter and would take the reigns with little experience. Behind him is junior Seth Stickland, sophomore Andrew Strickland and freshman Dillan Thompson.
