ACPhilson, point taken.. You were right, and I was wrong, point made, okay? You win. Trust me, I am not looking to get into a fight with anyone. I merely linked the article to show Cockytalk nation that this whole "Clowney Is quitting on his coaches and his teammates" narrative has already taken hold. The national media (as evidenced by the fact that it was on the front page of espn.com, yahoo.com AND cbssportsline.com) is taking this story and they are running with it. I would expect those idiots on First Take, Around the Horn AND PTI to "debate" whether or not Clowney has quit on USC all day tomorrow! They have already made it one of their primary subjects on the morning editions of SportsCenter! Regardless of what some on here want to believe, this is not a "non-story", and things are only going to get worse if he misses another game. SOS and Ward BOTH kinda fanned the flames with their inflammatory comments, IMHO. They were just giving the national drive-bys carte blanche to take this whole "CLOWNEY HAS QUIT ON HIS COACHES AND THEY ARE P*SSED ABOUT IT!!!" story and RUN WITH IT, which is what they are now doing.
