Generally, we are the "authors" of "content" around here - "here" being a blog and not a message board. Recognize, we do, that you've come here not to contribute, but to consume. Nevertheless, there is the sporadic occasion where, either for our benefit or for to exercise the thinkifiers of the masses, we ask you a question. Today's question is

...

Which Gamecock quarterback will see the most snaps Saturday against the Rebels? Smelley, Beecher, or Garcia?

Smelley got the start against UAB, but when the official press release went up on the Gamecock official website, the first line read, "Stephen Garcia was 13-for-20 for 131 yards and ran for 86 more in the first significant action of his career, giving South Carolina's offense enough of a kick to beat UAB 26-13 on Saturday night."

Of course, then again, Garcia threw a pick in the 3rd quarter and didn't see the field again.

If I'm Spurrier, I start Garcia. While his passing statistics were nothing to gloat over (See: Snead, Jevan), he ran for 86 yards. Designed quarterback runs have been successful against the Rebels this season. Furthermore, Spurrier saw why this blog has fawned over the Rebel Front Four and must be worried that Beecher or Smelley will be sitting ducks on Saturday.
