You can imagine everyone outside of Gamecock country is feeling tired of this "once in a lifetime, can't miss, 100% beast" talk. For the sake of the 99%, they gotta make it sound at least somewhat interesting right?

That, or they are just hating.

I hope SOS was watching, because that should make him mad, for it indicates that Deke did not or does not push his guys to go all out.
Don't worry, Deke will be under the microscope this year.

I'd say it's no surprise that Lawing is a better coach than Deke. Deke may recruit better though, so it may pan out.

7.27 on his 3 cone drill. He wasn't happy with it apparently. (Odd
Considering espn keeps reporting he did no other drills after the 40, vertical, and broad jump)

In Kelcy Quarles' combine scouting report, under weaknesses, it says: "Does not generate powerful hand violence."

I triple-dog-dare that scout to say those words to Kelcy's face! I bet plenty of powerful hand violence would pursue!

Uhh... no, I was however making fun of said scout for using a ridiculous phrase like "powerful hand violence".

Deke famously said in one of his first interviews that he wasn't going to "mess Clowney up" when he kept getting asked what it was going to be like to coach him. The thinking was, if it's not broke, don't fix it. I think that was the absolute wrong approach in hindsight, Clowney had a lot of work to do on techniques in general and understanding how he could best influence games in particular. Adams may need to rethink that line of reasoning in the future.

I think theres a lot of money to be made in making clowney's "bad work ethic" a big deal. I do think that there are several factors that have made him seem like "he doesn't love football" or whatever, such as getting double and triple-teamed, and with the fact that he's such an incredible athlete with fast-twitch muscle fibers, I think he gets tired faster than other players because of the energy it takes to move something that big that fast. And when every eye is on him, they magnify every play and have selective perception because of his reputation. I'm sure if you took a lot of players and watched every single play you could find some bad effort plays. However, even spurrier has eluded to his work ethic, so I don't think its completely unfounded

So clowney opts out of two drills and they flame him for it but , manziel does one and Bridgewater does none and it's ok. Mayock said I lost respect for him , what a douche

Clowney's outstanding combine performance

South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney shows scouts why he should be the top pick in the draft as he put up a masterful combine performance. Watch

This is really kind of old news. Everyone in the SEC should have known that losing Lawing would hurt. He was a great D-line coach. I could even see him coaching professional level if he desired. On the other hand what we gained was a great recruiter and someone who could learn from Ward and become a great D- line coach. Lawing had years to master his craft and Deke is still a little new to the game.

I don't think you can compare them until after Deke has been here for 3 years.

....at the combine, yes......over the last month or so, he has gotten a number of very positive reviews. It seems like he is clearly a 2nd round player......maybe late 1st round.

Default Re: Combine

Count the cross-field and downfield tackles Clowney made. There were several factors that limited his stat production this year.

Crappy linebacker play for the first three-fourths of the season. (The coaches all said it caused the DL to not play their assignments.)

Quick-throw one and two-step schemes.

Running away from Clowney's side.

Throws into gaps behind Clowney.

Doubles and triples.

A couple of injuries (foot and ribs).
