Now, that's 'Bad' Garcia

By Chris Low

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- Just when you think Stephen Garcia is going to make it through a game without one of those "Huh?" plays, he does what he did to open the third quarter.

After not handling a high shotgun snap, he chose to throw the ball through the end zone for a safety instead of falling on the ball at the 2. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier looked stunned on the sideline after watching the Gamecocks start the second half precisely the way they didn't want to.

As it was, Alabama only got a field goal out of it after receiving the free kick, but it's a sequence that completely changed the complexion of this game.
