Yeah us having a great year, in the hunt for an SEC title till the last SEC game, winning a bowl, Clowney playing through injury and still leading the line in tackles, 8th on the team even with teams scheming to stop him he was still the single most disruptive player on the field due to the coaching!

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.

Deke just seemed to be happy to be apart of the program and maybe get some of the credit for JD. Lawing was a coach and made the D-line better. Deke was someone to fill the hole, a role player. I hate that we lost Lawing. Deke is just horrible.

Wow, some bold accusations, considering you don't know Deke Adams from Adam Dekes, and don't get to see what goes on the practices and really are just talking sh*t about things you know nothing about.

This is so far from the truth that it is not funny...

Like it was previously stated, Quarles credited Deke with upping his game this year.

The people bashing Deke don't really seem to have a clue about football. I don't recall you bashing Lawing when teams like Arkansas were having to swap out RB's due to exhaustion from running for so many yards.

Default Re: Clowney inadvertently swipes at Deke?

deke coached a lot of lawings players last year. pretty much everybody who will play on the dline this coming year never really played for lawing(maybe Surratt). Deke needs to push his guys hard to be the best they can be, and put the next guy in if need be to get the best results out of the line. The dline needs to improve early and often this year. hope he has our guys ready for those first few conf. games

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.
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.

I cannot believe a great SEC program like the Gamecocks cannot attract quality coaches. We should be getting guys like the man pictured below, Dan Brooks. I really don't understand why SOS has to settle for guys like Deke.

Yaz, why do you think Spurrier is "settling" with Deke?

Maybe he thinks Deke is younger, more energetic, and a better recruiter.

Perhaps since we've had so much negative recruiting ove the years because of old coaches on our staff, he doesn't want to add to that by bringing on someone in their 60's.

Or maybe Brooks has some baggage that Spurrier doesn't want to deal with?

I'm not understanding the dislike for Deke, and I don't think our DL would've played any better if Lawing hadn't backed himself into a corner and had to leave.

There is a lot of truth in that statement.
