What is there really to say other than . . .

This stinks. Steve Spurrier won't have Chris Smelley to kick around anymore, as the former "Gamecock quarterback of the future" (TM) will be leaving to play baseball. College baseball. Somewhere other than in Columbia.

This leaves Stephen "Don't Call Me Tannyhill" Garcia as the only experienced (sic) quarterback in town. He now inherits the mantle of "Gamecock quarterback of the future" (TM), joining such esteemed company as Corey Jenkins, Syvelle Newton and the guy who played Rusty in National Lampoon's Vegas Vacation.

All of which brings up the reasonable question: If Steve Spurrier is such a wonderful developer of quarterback talent, when is South Carolina going to produce a marginally competent  quarterback under his watch?
