Default Clowney for Heisman on Yahoo cover page...

Great read...

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-...225017271.html

Can Clowney break the 27 sacks put up by Derrick Thomas? And who was the only primary defensive player to win the Heisman?

The best player in college football despite position...if anyone can do something this special it is Clowney, GO COCKS!!

No but I could see him at H-back. I always wished we used Melvin Ingram like that some. Especially after seeing how he ran that fake punt for a TD.

If it really starts to look like he's close to getting the heisman late in the year and it's close between an offensive player I could see the coaches doing something like that. I couldn't see Lorenzo Ward being opposed to it at all.

I hope you are being sarcastic because if I was Ward and that happened I would probably have a heart attack. Clowney winning the Heisman would be great but I don't want to risk him being hurt playing offense just so that he can win an award

I would like him to win the Heisman as a purely defensive player.

27 Sacks...has anyone really come close to that? Last year Clowney had 14.5, I think the year before he had 8. So his production is trending upward, but that would be a huge jump. I really hope he sets that as his goal. He'd have to avg over 2 a game. I could see him getting 20, but 27 might be a stretch.

If he actually gets close or beats that 27, he would most likely win the Heisman, as long as some RB/QB (at a Championship level program) didn't break some NCAA records as well next year.

This he needs to play offense is crazy talk! Nobody said, "You know RGIII needs to play some defense and get some QB sacks before we give him serious consideration for the Heisman." I have no power over the talking heads and the voters, but discounting a defensive player because he doesn't score any touchdowns is ridiculous. Having Clowney run some offensive plays is a gimmick and too dangerous in my opinion.

The fact that SOS dialed this up during the spring game, puts opposing offensive coordinators on notice...

You also have to take in consideration Clowney's total playing time last year with his sack total...I'd say he could have had at least 3-4 more without his injury or rest late in games when things were under control.

1980 was when most schools began keep sack records. since then only 9 players have had over 20 sacks. Four had 20

2000 was when ncaa began keep official sack records. since then only 1 Terrell Suggs had over 20 sacks. 1 had 20- Elvis Dummervill

If Clowney gets to 20 sacks he should win the Heisman IMO. Hopefully he will 20 when we get to Clemson and he can get another 4 or 5

This is very gimmicky

We need to do what it takes to win games and win the SEC. If Clowney wins the Heisman in the process - awesome! If not - so be it. We do not need to insert him into offense just to hype up the heisman hype.

Coach Ward has said he thinks Clowney takes plays off and that if he can get him to go 100% every play he will be "unstoppable". If he does that, see you in NY.

Clowney needs 23 sacks to tie the NCAA official career sacks leader Suggs at 44, Suggs averaged 1.71 sacks per game in his career.
