Default Clowney inadvertently swipes at Deke?

To say when Lawing left he had to push himself seems to be a major statement on Deke's mentality.

Why? I think Deke and Lawing were two different kinds of coaches. I always thought of as Lawing as being a hard ass. Not so Deke.

Different coaches get results in different ways.

IDK......I don't put the blame on the coaches. I'm sure they tried pushing him but the guy was in it for himself.

Could you imagine a Clowney with Lattimore work ethic? Could have maybe been the best defensive collegiate player of all time....Charles Woodson category at least.

His legacy will always be lacking in my opinion. People will always remember "The Play". Truth is....I think Gilmore, Melvin, Norwood did more. That falls on Clowney....not the coaches.

That doesn't make sense. So he was "in it for himself?"

Was he "in it for himself" in 2012 when he had a great year? Was he "in it for himself" in 2013 when he didn't perform as well? Because it appears that when Lawing "tried pushing him" it worked.

I don't get what you're saying. They're appears to have been a difference between 2012 and 2013, and according to his comments it may have been due to coaching style.

Some people are self-motivators and self-starters, some are not.

Lawing was a better coach for Jadeveon.

Jadeveon needs to be pushed...so whoever drafts him, find him a coach who will push him....maybe go hire Brad Lawing...might be worth it.

His bread was already buttered in 2013 - exactly my point! Lot's of good players get schemed against. It was up to him to get coached and perform....lot's of times he didn't or didn't care too. He was great player.....my point was he could have been a lot better.

No way to sugarcoat what was said, and what was not said. Direct statement of Clowney's opinion. No doubt that sent a wave of emotion over at least one of our coaches currently on staff, and one of our former coaches.

He could have been a lot better, really, so he played 2 1/2 games less then most of the team but finished 8th in tackles at DE, led the team in QB hurries by a long shot..... He could have been a lot better, You could say that about anyone but to say that about player who played 3 years of college football, the best 3 years of football in the history of our program and was a factor in every game h played is just insane in my opinion! How good could the rest of the team have been, how good could he have been? What could he have done to reach his potential that you think/know he didn't do? How good will do you think he will be in the NFL?
No matter what your answers are I can tell you he lived up to my expectations and beyond when he signed the dotted line to be a GAMECOCK!

disagree. it's the coaches jobs to push these guys. lawing was a great dlc here, and he got more out of all of these guys than deke has. clowney was better, quarles was better and sutton was a lot better.

You don't lose guys like Taylor, Jerideau, Wilson, Bowens, Smith, Holloman, and Swearinger without it effecting everyone on the defense.

Different coaches get results in different ways.
Maybe he needs a hardass. If he goes to Houston something tells me Watt will be a whole new kinda hardass.

Quote:
Nearly 20 years later, Adams gets a chance to not only work alongside Spurrier, but coach a guy, Clowney, who could go down as one of the best college defensive players of the past two decades.

“I haven’t really studied him or anything like that,” Adams said. “I’ve watched him when I had a chance to see him on TV. He’s probably the most dominant defensive linemen in the country right now. My goal is to definitely get in there and coach him up, but at the same time not mess him up. I’m excited to have a chance to coach him.”

Personally I think Deke took too much of a "hands off" approach.

Lawing was a big loss and they did about as good a job as they could filling that slot given who was out there.

i dont think he was making excuses or that he mailed it in last year. maybe hes being truly genuine that lawing was the guy he really wanted to thank and it makes sense considering he spent two years under him and was recruited by him. the other way of looking at it is he's saying hes coachable and if you try to push him he will respond.


of course it doesnt look great for deke, but it is what it is. kelcey went from a solid starter to all sec under deke.

Kelcy became All SEC because of JD getting all of the attention on the other side, not because of Deke.

Default Re: Clowney inadvertently swipes at Deke?

So Deke gets the credit for Clowney not being as good this year but doesnt get the credit for Quarles being All-SEC.

That doesnt seem fair....cant have it both ways.

We lost two games this past season with young, inexperienced LB's and problems at the beginning of the year in the secondary.

I would say Deke did at least a good job and will reserve ultimate judgement for when he gets all his own guys in here.

Quarles disagrees and gave Deke credit for getting him to All SEC. Sorry if that doesn't fit your theory. Ask Spurrier if he wants Lawing back. The answer is hell no.
