Jadeveon Clowney Is Human After All

Headlines across the country are already blaring the news: University of South Carolina superstar Jadeveon Clowney caught a 54-yard touchdown pass during the Gamecocks’ spring football game (in plain clothes, no less).

It’s the latest addition to his growing legend …

The reality, however, is that the 6-foot-6, 272-pound defensive lineman tripped and fell (awkwardly we might add) trying to make a cut at the 12-yard line.

Take a look …

Wait, gravity affects Jadeveon Clowney, too? Because based on the unanimous All-America season he put together in 2012 (and the bang with which he began 2013), we weren’t sure laws of physics applied to him.

Clowney – who was suffering from neck and back pain (along with a concussion) – wasn’t expected to play in USC’s spring game. But he came off the bench (literally) and caught a bomb from freshman quarterback Connor Mitch after sneaking behind the defensive secondary on a favorite trick play of USC head coach Steve Spurrier.

A junior, Clowney finished last season with 54 tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss, 13 sacks and three forced fumbles. A Heisman Trophy contender, he is likely to be the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL draft given his superhuman combination of size, agility, strength and 4.5-second speed in the forty-yard dash.

FITS, if you gave the guy credit in the first place…it may be appropriate for you to Run You Mouth..
But you IGNORANTLY ran criticism of Clowney before he even played a down…caliming SC fans were stupid for being ecited about the possibilities…You never acknowledged, dis-avowed or retracted, those ignorant comments…
You ended up looking like a D@*n fool…just like the shots you took at Spurrier, before he madeyou look like the Brain-dead Idiot you are…

Yeah, glad Clowney, he of the sore back/neck, went ahead and tumbled onto said back/neck in the game he in which he wasn’t even playing.

I mean, I get that he sat out the end of spring mostly as a precaution, but this was a dumb move.

SC needs a Major League team so bad, so they can wear out their players AFTER they turn 21. but it is SC and we’ll never have a big league team. At least they call them the “Carolina” Panthers The addition of SC even makes the logo resemble a dead cats head., You may notice they hesitate to play players that are hurt, just to win a game against a rival, it may be a courtesy, but me thinks it’s because it cost them money in the long run. Kind of like credibility.
