Default Life Without Clowney......

Alright y'all, this new influx of talent has really brought home for me the reality that Clowney is no longer with us.

It's a devastating feeling that, frankly, has left me reeling.

I'm sure the feeling has been brought on for a number of reasons, but I think the most significant is that, without him, I don't know who will provide what I can only describe as the BADASS FACTOR.

With Jadeveon we knew that no matter what, we had the biggest, baddest man on the block. Regardless of what another team threw at us we knew that our Monster was better than their Monster, and I think that gave us a lot of confidence. It gave us some serious BADASS FACTOR.

With him gone, though, who will restore our badassitude? Who among us remains to strike mortal fear into our enemies, to provide our team with a rallying point, and our fans with a hero.

Basically, who is next in line to be that implacable, physical freak for us?

Help me Obi-wan Kenobi.....who's our New Hope?

It might be less eventful. No more, " He didn't ride the bus to game" bs and of course the constant camera pointing at him on the sidelines documenting every huff and puff. I say good luck JD and let's get back to business.

I mean, I get that this year might be less stressful. But I'm wondering who will replace him as the guy who gets off of the dang bus and makes the opposing fan base gasp in fear.

This thread makes me sad. Proud to say I got to watch Clowney play in person. As far as badasses on the DL, it may have to come from a new guy. Sawyer maybe. Looking forward to seeing what Lamin can do. Might be a reincarnation of Kenrick Ellis (on the football field).

Football goes on. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed watching him while he was here and he was one of the best. He's not easily replaceable, but I think we'll be fine with the quality and depth we have at DE. As mentioned already, I will be glad that the spectacle surrounding the man will be gone.

Ok, I was being melodramatic in the original post for fun. What I'm honestly trying to figure out is who will be the next physical enforcer on this team. Specifically on the defense.

Default Re: Life Without Clowney......

Don't get me wrong, I'm glad he is and always will be a gamecock...but the way this thread sounds...it is as if he actually had a great season. Jd was barely a force perhaps 30% of the time this past season. I know the argument that teams had to account for him...yada yada...but the truth is, I don't think we will miss a beat without him. Love him...but time to move on and I missed Norwood and swearinger far more than I will miss Clowney.

I'll enjoy watching him at the next level...but what's ithe shades of gray sentiment from this thread?

i disagree with this, he made as many plays this year as last, and offense schemed against him, freeing others up. we might not miss a beat but he is a huge loss

Well, be able to get pressure. We have some strong dudes up front that will be able to push that pocket right in the QB's face. Most of the dudes we are going to be using are Juniors and seniors. They know that our defensive line is our pride and they'll be up to the challenge.

I'm gonna miss Clowney. He was awesome publicity. "The Hit" was probably one of the best things to ever happen to USC as far as publicity.
