South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier wished Stephen Garcia had finished what he started with the 15th-ranked Gamecocks. Now, Spurrier says it's time for the team to move ahead. Garcia was dismissed from South Carolina on Tuesday after failing an alcohol test, a person familiar with the decision told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because South Carolina has not specified the reason for Garcia's departure. Spurrier learned Garcia would be kicked off the Gamecocks on Monday night and he spoke with his former quarterback the next day. The coach says he wished Garcia ''could've finished his career as a Gamecock.'' Sophomore Connor Shaw will make his second consecutive start for South Carolina at Mississippi State on Saturday.
