08:16 AM ET 08.08 | Stephen Garcia would like to bury his rocky offseason, and he's asking the same of fans. Garcia admitted he entertained the notion [of transferring], to escape what he called a "fishbowl" in terms of attention. His teammates, though, are actually what kept him at USC. The other Gamecocks came to Garcia's defense on social media websites. They said they wanted him back for a run at the school's first conference title. ... "I'm very thankful to still be here." Garcia has become a divisive person in USC culture, splitting fans who support him -- or say he should have been gone years ago for his shenanigans. "They have to, I guess," Garcia said, uncomfortably laughing when asked why fans should trust him at this point. "I'm asking them ... to take me back one more time."

It is something they will either love him if he does really good, or they will heap on the hate if he does not, simple.

Way to boil it down to the bare essentials there 0-6.

Now, if you would just apply that same lack of BS to your conversations with sugar you'll rid yourself of the Eddie Haskell label.

Fat, greasey-headed, drunk, unshaven, slacker at quarterback. Smoke and Mirrors in Columbia SC. More wait'll next year for the most loyal fans in Southern Football. Spurrier's big year comes down to this loser? No sympathy here for SC.

Obviously not.. guess they arent ready to hand it over to Shaw...

The irony of this situation is that tOBC is famous for a quick hook with QBs. He once benched a Heisman candidate for throwing an INT.

Shaw must suck really bad for tOBC to put up with all this <hit

BSB I think that tOBC is losing it somewhat, getting too old, lost his mojo.

+1...More concerned with keeping the little white ball in the short grass.
