Default Spurrier Interviewed about Clowney

Includes Video

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...-college-coach

Quote:
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier gushed about Jadeveon Clowney's talent level on Wednesday. But Spurrier didn't gush about Clowney's work habits.

Spurrier said on NFL Network's "NFL AM" that Clowney's work habits were "pretty good" and "OK," saying they didn't compare to those of former Gamecocks stars Marcus Lattimore, Stephon Gilmore and Melvin Ingram. But each time Spurrier dinged the work habits, he also praised Clowney, saying "when the ball is snapped, yeah, he's got something no one else has" and "when the ball is snapped, he's got an explosion like you've never seen before."

I know someone at USC close to Clowney that said it was always a battle to get him to the weight room. However, when he starts getting paid I would expect he will certainly be a more motivated. In other words his best football is still ahead of him which is scary and I would expect him to be a great one when all is said and done.

But how do you maintain muscle if you're not going to the weightroom?

Clowney would've been looking like a tub of lard by mid season

Complex answer to your question but short answer is No he would not look like a tub of lard. Muscle does not turn into fat and vice versa.

I'm sure he lifted enough during te season to maintain his mass and strength

Default Re: Spurrier Interviewed about Clowney

When you are and have been a physically dominating player at EVERY LEVEL where you've ever played the game, it's hard to have the motivation to do the little things to take to "to the next level".

This is the issue with Clowney. When he finally makes it to the NFL, he won't have that luxury.

Basically that equates to. Clowney is a gamer. Some guys don't excel on the practice field because they get bored but in the game they dominate. That's Clowney.

The HBC won't sugarcoat it. Can you imagine how good Clowney would be if he gave the effort of the other guys Spurrier mentioned.

Yea he could of been scary good! Like how much he improved from his freshman year to his Sophmore year. Another improvement like that to his JR year and he would of easily been the best player in the country.

It's similar to the Alshon situation IMO. Yea Alshon was great but Marshall and others with the Bears have said he was out of shape and didn't have a great training program when he came to school. He was too heavy in college. When he played last season he was 219 and 8% body fat. Imagine if he was in that kind of shape his Jr year.

To be fair, 95% of the SEC athletes do not give the effort of those three. Those guys were exceptional.

Sorry, but that doesn't equate to being a gamer.

What it equates to is a talented athlete that was satisfied being a bit better than most of his compeitition, and didn't do the extra things needed to improve.

JD made some great plays here, and brought the program a lot of publicity. But the question about him will always be how good could he really have been if he'd worked harder?

We've had a lot of guys come in unheralded and greatly improve their stock. Unfortunately, we've also had more than our fair share of highly rated guys over the years who never really did anything great because they were lazy.

I'm hoping he gets to the league and tears it up, but it's equally as possible he gets complacent after getting his big payday and goes down in history as being a big a bust as Tony Mandarich.

So in your mind if a player does not work out like Melvin Ingram or Swearinger, he is lazy.

Why wouldn't they be?

Some guys are physically gifted, and have enough talent to get by with little or no extra effort. Derek Watson admitted in an interview that he never lifted weights in HS, and simply went through the motions here working out, because he felt like he didn't need to.

JD's one of those rare guys who are off the charts athletically. It's pretty clear he didn't put forth a Lattimore or Swearinger effort working out, and he was still a very good player.

Just think what he could've been with more effort? He clearly didn't look as quick this year, and I'm not overly sure I totally believe that he was asked to take it easy because we couldn't run plays.

What effect did his not putting out the effort have on other players? Quarles admitted he needed to step it up and put out more effort, who else might have slacked a bit because they were too caught up in the JD attention whirlwind?

I loved watching the guy play, he's one of those once in a lifetime talents that you're lucky to get to watch. And he apparently is a very nice young man, my stepdaughter knew him and always commented on how polite and friendly he is. But he even admitted himself if he had it all to do over again, he'd listen more to his coaches and follow their advice.

The national talking heads are already spinning this to say that Spurrier was bashing Clowneys work eithic.

Cowherd said he has a source close to our school saying that Clowney had to always be watched closely and he was immature and not a leader, etc.
