Augusta Homesick Blues

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, facing another spring without his incumbent starting quarterback Stephen Garcia, and, for that matter, another fall WITH his incumbent starting quarterback Stephen Garcia, sat down with a Fender electric, opened a vein, and let the sorrow come flowing out in the form of song.  ESPN's Chris Low was there to transcribe.

We keep hoping
That Stephen would
Really, really improve
And make that commitment level
That you’ve got to have
To be a decent starting quarterback

But he’s just a little different
Type individual, I guess
Than maybe what you would hope
To have as your starting quarterback
That’s just who he is
A little different type of individual than most

(Chorus)
To be a decent starting quarterback
To be a decent starting quarterback
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh 
To be a decent starting quarterback
To be a decent starting quarterback

We’ll see how Stephen does
He’s a difficult kid to coach
Because some of the same mistakes
Keep happening with him
But I just have to accept
That he’s doing the best he can

If he’s our best
If he's our best
We’ve got to live
We've got to live
With the way he plays
With the way he plays

(Chorus 2X)
To be a decent starting quarterback
To be a decent starting quarterback
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh 
To be a decent starting quarterback
To be a decent starting quarterback
