Default Shout out to a Gamecock

I don't know how many former or current players visit this site but I imagine a few do. I think we need to give a shout out to a player in each of the 3 major sports and say thanks.....

Football....Garcia....he wasn't the most talented but he wanted to win as much as any I have seen. He was also the lead recruit in one of our best recruiting classes ever....I think he helped start what we are now....mistakes aside

Basketball...Tom Owens....the most under appreciated player to ever play basketball for us. He was as great as Roche but just never seemed to get the credit.

Baseball...Roth....what can be said that has not already been said about him ? Quality player and person. The complete package...

Thanks guys....

Garcia was physically gifted, but a total sh*thead. Owens and Roth definitely 2 Gamecock greats.

If Garcia wanted to win as much as the rest, he wouldn't get drunk the night before games. Just saying.

Pretty sure Roche and Owens don't check in on Cockytalk.........but they did perfect two man basketball. Those two guys could be a 5 man squad by themselves.....

As for Garcia, he wanted to win..............he just couldn't get out of his on way.

Funny enough, I am friends with Roche and had him log in as me once while visiting him in Denver. He is a great guy and was pretty blown away about how much folks still care about him.

Unfortunately, Garcia wanted to do what Garcia wanted to do more than win games. He didn't come close to scratching the surface of his talent and almost drove Spurrier out of coaching. Can't give him too much credit there boss.

Since we're sending shout outs, I'd like to send a shout out to Shaq Wilson who was invited to the Saints rookie camp. Good luck Shaq.

After everything i've read regarding Garcia this probably sums it up the best. Well put.

Default Re: Shout out to a Gamecock

Any of y'all still taking shots at Garcia years later I got to wonder what's your motivation? I loved the good we saw in Garcia, and the positive things we saw him accomplish. But I was one of the first to call for him to be benched, I was a Shaw supporter very early on (even ECU game at BOA Stadium, I thought he got bad wrap in that one).

But that being said, Garcia has paid the price for his bad decisions. Leave the guy alone. I mean you are Gamecocks fans right? Garcia did a lot of things no other QB in our history had accomplished. And right now his big win against #1 Bama in the midst of a dynasty looks pretty darn impressive.

Stop piling dirt on Garcia. He is one of us, embrace him and forgive him for actions I know he now regrets. I thank God every day that people have forgiven me for my past actions.

If you consider Garcia's wins some of the biggest in our football program's history (winning at The Swamp, Bama, etc.) as I do, you should stop the BS.

"If" Garcia reads this as the OP stated, thank you for some of the best memories I have in over 35 years as a Gamecock football fan.

Garcia was a very good football player when he had his head on straight.

Football....Garcia....



Seriously though, out of all the classy players that have gone through our program since Spurrier got here why did you choose not only a player that was a terrible representative of the university, but one that will rustle the jimmies of a sizable portion of the board?

Garcia gave me one of the greatest moments of my life (ALA... as I left the stadium I've never been happier) and one of the worst (AUB, never screamed louder in the stands in dismay)... he was entertaining as hell and for that I'll always remember him.

As far as Garcia, time to forgive for his mistakes and thank him for his triumphs.

As far as Roche and Owens go... All I can say is thank you. What a great time for Carolina basketball. I was a Freshman at USC in 1970... Man, what a basketball Team we had.

As far as Roth and Price... just THANKS. But somehow that does not seem like enough.

But my shout outs go to Ray Tanner and Steve Spurrier. To thee I raise my glass.

Well said sir!

2) Blake Cooper- stud
3) Perry and Terry Dozier- twin billing!

In keeping with part of the original theme:

Football: Kenrick Ellis - Too bad you couldn't leave off the first part of puff, puff, pass rush.

Basketball: Mike Holmes - A better rough houser at home than on the court

Baseball: Lonnie Chisenhall - If only you could have stolen bases.
