You may recall a few weeks back when South Carolina quarterbacks coach G.A. Mangus was suspended by head coach Steve Spurrier for taking a leak in public. This, even though Spurrier had been photographed doing the same thing himself in 2007. Well now hypocrisy has reared its ugly head once again for the Gamecocks, as Spurrier has suspended quarterback Stephen Garcia for “inappropriate language” at a team function. Spurrier, to ESPN:

“He was actually suspended for stupidity, I call itWe tried to send him a message that if you’re going to be a student athlete here, you’ve got to act in a first class manner a little more.”

But as the ESPN interview goes on, Spurrier proceeds to swear on national TV.

Caution: NSFW language, obviously.

Can’t wait for the next fresh hypocrisy. No one’s committing murder here, of course. But why should any of your players follow the rules if you’re plainly just giving them lip service?

    To be fair, Garcia is a massive turd.

    Karma continues to run up the score on Spurrier.
