First I disagree hardily with your inference. No we r not running an adoption agency nor to my knowlege is any other program. yes our goal is to one day win a championship of one sort or another. I believe that is the goal of each program with out regard to how many, if any, currently stand in thier case.
I firmly disagree with the remaining two points noted in your statement.... We are not looking for grown men. The youngsters who sign with us do not meet the criteria for today's "grown man". They are not self sufficient, nor self directed nor are they seeking to be so. The very act of accepting a schoolie with which they place themselves under the purview of school admin and staff in exchange for guidence, development and education, be in FB, academics or both demonstrate that.
They are not men as football players either, indeed possibly the most outstanding aspect of the SS program is in player development, physically, technically and in understanding the game and what it takes to become ones best... to become "grown men"
lastly not sure how your statement, be it accurate in it's conjecture or no, applies to my statement?? How so?

Check out the interview Clowney did with Ed Werder of ESPN:

http://search.espn.go.com/clowney/

Werder asked Clowney about SOS's comments on his work ethic. Clowney responded that Coach was never at practice, so he was surprised SOS made those comments.

I respect that SOS doesn't try to be fake and act like he had some kind of fatherly relationship with JD. SOS doesn't get very close to defensive players. We all know that. Whammy was the right person to be there.

Better go listen again. He didn't say SOS was never at practice. He said Spurrier was never on his side of the practice field.

That is very different from saying he was never at practice. Very, very different.

Did you read the rest of my post? We all know that SOS coaches the offense and Whammy coaches the defense.

HBC was there for the players when they were at South Carolina. This is personal time for family and friends. He probably doesn't feel it's his place to horn in on their time.

Spurrier's relationship with Clowney has always seemed businesslike. I recall the interview where Spurrier said we should thank JD for coming to Carolina, and my immediate thought was it sounded oddly removed and transactional. I don't for one minute believe Spurrier was even remotely close to JD, and I'm sure he's always viewed the situation as a quick 3-and-done. I don't think Spurrier ever gets emotionally invested in many players at all...he's f###ing Steve Superior!

Good Lord.

Who cares that Spurrier wasn't at the draft. I can promise you that Steve Spurrier cares plenty about his players. Him not being there has absolutely nothing to do with that.

Here's something to think about. The guy is pushing 70 years old. Maybe, just maybe, he spends his offseason around the house with family, and playing some golf here and there. Other coaches are there as a recruiting tool. Nothing else. Spurrier has said countless times that he will not outwork other coaches. I believe this is much ado about nothing.

The fact that this thread is still going, and the fact that some of our own fans are saying Spurrier should have been there, is a joke. Our coaching staff was represented there....by Lorenzo Ward.

So was Dabo there when Taj was drafted?? you can't play favorites with your players... what kind of message does that send to the undrafted players and the recruits? Hey if you are a star...we are there for you otherwise good luck...---also as mentioned this is the players time to shine and have the spotlight, it is not the time for a recruiting photo op..by the coaches...
