Stephen Garcia suspended from USC

Our friends at The State in Columbia have got the story.

Garcia has done some great things for the Gamecocks, including leading USC to its first SEC title game ever. But he's always seemed right on the edge of getting pulled from the game, or pulled from the team. From USC AD Eric Hyman:

"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.”

As of now, no specifics on "behavior that is unacceptable."

Of course, it's a long time before the games start. But Connor Shaw, please pick up the white courtesy phone.

The all night party session with co-eds before the bowl game thing must not have gone over too well with the 'Ol Ball Coach.

The defending champs will gladly introduce Mr. Shaw to the Williams-Bryce stadium turf in October.

The only shock about Garcia was how he and TOBC managed to last this long.
