USC quarterback Stephen Garcia is expected to be reinstated sometime this week, possibly as early as Monday, reports CBS Sports. Garcia was suspended in April following an “alcohol-fueled outburst at a life skills seminar”, which has to be top 5 places to have an alcohol-fueled outburst. With camp starting next week, Coach Steve Spurrier is pleased with the changes he has seen in the Gamecock signal caller, saying, “He’s showing a commitment we’ve never seen before”.
I suppose this news was expected, but must still be a sweet sound in the ears around Columbia. The Cocks are expected to be formidable this year. Excitement and expectation is higher than it has been in recent memory. Even better news is his QB coach, G. A. Mangus, could also be reinstated next week. Garcia gets help with his footwork, and maybe he can give Mangus a few tips on holding his liquor. Win-Win.
