Default Clowney vs. The World!

Look I love the publicity and think that Clowney is incredible, but is anybody else tired of how they are characterizing our team this season?

Everything is "Clowney is set to take on UNC". It's like ESPN has forgotten that there are 10 other players on the field with him. He is put forth as this transcendent force of nature, this Gladys Knight to everyone else's Pips, and I find it annoying.

Sometimes, even, they make it sound like he is doing all of this IN SPITE of being at South Carolina. If Clowney were at Alabama, they would be talking about him as a great player who is part of an even greater system; at USC they talk about him like he IS the entire system.

I'm just starting to find it a tad disrespectful and I hope that our other 84 players think the same thing and go out like they wanna fix it.

I see you are in Auburn (condolences)...anyway, does the hype remind you of anyone else? (cough, cough, Cam)...

it happens, enjoy it while it lasts. I hope the team uses it as self motivation...to your point.

I've seen/heard a lot of the real college football analysts talking up Quarles as well. I think the "it's all Clowney" stuff is just hype for the people that are NFL fans/general sports fans and only know the 3-4 biggest CFB stars.

Yea, I can't name a WR or RB for Texas A&M. It's just the way the media covers stars. Often times they aren't doing articles about teams, they are doing the article about a player.

Everything I've read that was about D-Lines in general has been very favorable for us. We are rated, what top 3 at worst in D-lines. #1 in a lot of places I've seen. That's more than just 1 great player. Sutton is going to be a top 3 round pick after this year. He is scary.

We are in an NFL driven country.
Clowney is the biggest NFL talent in the country.

Doesn't bother me as long as it doesn't go to clowney's head, which I don't see happening. I think I remember him saying something about his Mom telling him to stay humble and never get to big for his own britches. Anyway, just more publicity for our school.

Default Re: Clowney vs. The World!

Y'all's responses are all fair, reasonable and exactly what I was looking for. I suppose I should be grateful just to see South Carolina on the airwaves as much as we are.

And yes it is hard to live in Auburn. After graduating from Carolina in '12 I came here for grad school mainly because my future wife was in pharmacy school here.

And although I obviously despise ESPN, they might be just the weight we need to tip the Heisman scales our way.

Gonna be a long 2 days....Go Cocks.

Default Re: Clowney vs. The World!

The more hype Clowney gets, the more attention is off of guys like
Chaz Sutton, Kelcy Quarles, or Linebackers and DBs. If we can keep
UNC focused on containing Clowney, then the rest of the defense can
do their thing with greater ease.

PLUS

Clowney is getting more publicity that our school doesn't have to generate.
As long as the national media is talking him up, the more chances for him
to win the Heisman this year if he has another solid season (which I'm
positive is about to happen). It's a Win Win for us.

Spurt, that is so true. And when people tune in just to watch Clowney, it won't take long for them to notice the rest of our Garnet monsters.

As an Aggie, I loved the attention Manziel got during the season (not the offseason attention, obviously), but it was frustrating that it was only about Manziel. We had several players that were good enough to draft, but not good enough for ESPN to even acknowledge they were alive.

Appreciate that you're getting some attention and avoid paying attention to ESPN. The more air time / print space the team or Clowney gets, the more merchandise you'll sell (more money) and the better you'll look in front of recruits (more wins).

We've been over this. At first when the freak teaser video came out, I was worried. Now after hearing from other members on the board. I've changed my opinion.

Simple marketing. People are more drawn to the word "Clowney" than "South Carolina".
