The only thing I have aganist Garcia is that he came no where close to his potential. He did lead us to Atlanta and beat a number of good teams (including Alabama), but he made stupid selfish decisions that tarnished his reputation. If he hadn't made so many mistakes, he would definitely be up there with Ellis, tanneyhill, and shaw.

0-3 in bowl games because he refused to properly prepare. Wish him the best, but he is far from deserving of a statue in my opinion.

As a commentator, he may do well. Always seemed to be a good people person.

We all lived through it together and I will be glad to move on. Looking forward to getting past the ancient history and would be interested to hear what he has to say about current SEC football teams. I think SG's opinions might be insightful.

USC fans will turn on their star athletes for any mistake they make. How we got voted as having one of the most loyal fan bases I don't know.

Loyalty to the university and it's teams doesn't necessarily transfer to individual players.

Default Re: Former Gamecocks QB Stephen Garcia joins Saturday Down South as an SEC analyst

When I hear the name Steven Garcia I instantly think of our first SEC division championship. Spurrier era teams have all been about championships. We have one so far. Garcia piloted that team just like Tommy Suggs piloted our only ACC champion team. Dylan Thompson may give us our second. But perhaps USC never wins another in its history. I'm glad Garcia chose USC.

He did more for USC than any other USC QB in its history. So what if he left a few games early from a pidly mistake? So what???? He won a championship folks. Admit it! If he had broke his finger and missed the last few games of his college career instead of breaking a rule we would be talking about a statue for him rather than insulting the guy.
Except that our final record was 9-5 that year.

I don't consider the east div a championship really. It's better than we've ever done but the championship was played and we got blown out. I liked him but always thought his style of play didn't fit the piss poor OLs we had then. The guy got hammered on the field almost as much as he did off it.

Congrats to Stephen and I wish him nothing but good luck in his future endeavors. Hopefully this will be a stepping stone to greater things. He is a Gamecock and people should try to remember all the good things he did here instead of harping on the bad. He got us our first SEC East title, beat #1 Bama, and never lost to Clemson just to name a few.

I would hope we could avoid another bash session that will lead back to every one if his transgressions, and ultimately what Eric Hymans alms mater was.

He made mistakes, he's moving on with his life. Some if y'all should, too.

I think he should have some interesting insights. Congrats to Stephen.

Default Re: Former Gamecocks QB Stephen Garcia joins Saturday Down South as an SEC analyst

Im a big Garcia fan and was kinda following him thru websites (like the AFL Tampa site) and noticed probably a month ago his status with the team. No further press or announcement other than his roster status, which was something like cut for reasons other than football or physical injury. I kept waiting to see something here, nothing was started (and I know better than to bring his name up), his Twitter feed says nothing except everyday type stuff. His account did mention a trip to the Bahamas or such during the time frame of his departure from footbal but ive seen nothing about his status with Tampa.

GoodLuckGarcia !
