Among recent SEC quarterbacks, few are any more gone-but-not-even-close-to-being-forgotten than Stephen Garcia, the occasionally brilliant, occasionally maddening South Carolina signal-caller whose off-field issues eventually cost him his starting job and, eventually, his roster spot.

Garcia has since made a go of it with the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes, and in an interview with Block C Blog published Wednesday, he joked that the hardest part of the move north of the border was the language -- "not only the French, but the playbook."

But the best quote from the interview -- the perfect quote from the interview, given who we're talking about -- was this one concerning a particular Columbia nightlife district:

BCB: What advice would you give to the incoming freshmen QB's at Carolina?

SG: Tough one. Biggest advice is to stay the hell outta Five Points and stay focused. Once you're in the dog house, it is very difficult to get out.

Future Gamecock quarterbacks: this is a man who knows of what he speaks. Listening is advised.
