Default Deke Adams

What is your opinion our expectations of him coaching the line this year? I'll hang up and listen.

He is doing a jam up job with recruiting. All in all he was an upgrade from Lawing.

Upgrade from Lawing so far. I hope he can hold that line and use Clowney as he needs to be used.

IMO, he was an upgrade. Lawing has years of experience, but this man is a beast on the recruiting trail, Lawing was not. I think he's more of a player's coach. Very excited about having him on our coaching staff.

He's got big shoes to fill but an amazing stack of talent to work from. I expect consistency from our line. He did good work at UNC with less talent.

His efforts in recruiting seem to be paying off, but I'm more interested to see what he can do from a coaching standpoint.

What? Dude hasn't even started his Junior year yet?

Default Re: Deke Adams

I was listening to Deke Adams talk to the media after Spurrier's golf outing
last week. I LIKE WHAT HE HAD TO SAY... He's proven he can go close
deals with recruits, and when he spoke about Clowney, he didn't JUST
give you all the "He's so great, he can do it all, He's an exceptional talent"
blah, blah, blah....He said that JD could turn a game around with one play,
which he's proven, BUT he tends to get lazy at time, a I told him he needs
to play like every play was a gamechanger. He said that was going to be
his primary job this year, to keep Clowney focused and going hard all game
long"
JD needs to hear that, he needs someone to push him, and Deke said he
is the man to do it..... Before this season is over, I'm positive the majority
of Gamecock fans will agree that we have made a definite upgrade at the
D/Line coach....and that's saying a lot considering who he is replacing.

Not only is he a great recruiter, he is a good coach with player technique and scheme. He is the direct result of many of the kids that are now committing to Carolina.

Listen to the Chris Low interview with Clowney. The message is starting to get thru. See the 0:40 sec mark..

He is referring to a comment made by Abu Lamin. Lamin said that the coaching staff told him that they want him to take Quarrels place. It made it sound as if he was heading to the nfl after this year. If he has a good year, he's probably gone.

I think Brad Lawing left him a damn good line (Clowney, Sutton, Quarles, Surratt, Dixon, Dixon, English, Dukes, etc.) and left him with some good pipeline in recruiting. Should be pretty good.

I can't really estimate/measure his abilities FULLY until his recruits have completely taken over the line. Then we'll see how good he is, if he stays.

I think Deke has his own pipelines to work with from what Ive seen thus far.

I don't know .. What some perceive as lazy could actually be craftiness and set-up .. IMO Clowney may lay back a play or two and bait his blocker to sleep and then .... BAM another game changing play .... How can you tell ? ... The trick here is that Clowney's ability allows him to bait (ease-up) and still play his position well .. That said , I'm sure Deke knows a lot and is a great coach but genius is not often understood at first glance ...
How's that for BS ..

I don't blame or fault a player of Clowney's talent for "taking plays off". He's so far ahead of the average player he faces, he doesn't always have to go 100% to have an impact (no pun intended).

i expect great things especially with him giving the dline a little more "freedom" to attack the qb. too much talent amongst his group to not expect big things. his choices for the rabbit package and moving clowney around more are a couple things im looking out for, i really expect us to get minimum one more dlineman at least placed on somebody's all sec 2nd team.

Brad Lawing was the best DL coach ever at USC. Deke has some big shoes to fill and looks great so far.
