Default Clowney unfairly criticized against UNC

I know there is a topic on here about being sick or gassed for Clowney. However, there was an article written about this topic on Yahoo that talks about this and really puts Clowney's effort and impact in perspective. Outstanding article that I felt was worthy of its own thread.

Good article. Y'all might not want to read what some (unrealistic) folks on the Rivals message board are saying about Clowney and our team. One of them even said UNC exposed our defense (Did we watch the same game?). It will be funny watching them eat their words after next Saturday.

Maybe he was sick but for Ward to say that UNC is the fastest team he has ever seen?? Maybe they were fast during all of the 3 yard plays they ran all night.

I think he was referring to their tempo being the fastest. Not their players.

I thought Clowney was everywhere. He played his butt off. People expect huge sacks every play. the guy was changing all kinds of plays. I'll take that hustle all year. against lesser offenses, he will rock people.

The dude will get into football shape real quick (unless there was illness). He has never been a great practice player because he has never had to be. His hs coordinator said that they would have to take him out of practice at times just so the offense could run plays.. Maybe he got used to that a bit.

Default Clowney unfairly criticized against UNC

We all knew once he didn't have a huge night everybody would come out the woodwork and bash him. ESPN hyped him to the point where if he didn't have a hit like the outback bowl every game he would be terrible. He did good though last night. Like I said to my friend who was talking about Clowney I will take a win every game if They scheme away from him and we cover it like last night.

Spurrier says that too. So, nothing has changed.

Everyone was talking about how bad we were after the Vandy game last year. It's the same every year. We don't beat someone by 60 in our opener and every one says we suck. I just sit back and laugh.

Default Re: Clowney unfairly criticized against UNC

Well, this is the downside of being over-hyped. I tried say but it but so many people were eating up the hype. He is worthy of great hype, but they went way overboard and now the bar has been set impossibly high for him. I am actually kind of glad NC did such a good job against Clowney, now maybe the expectations are tempered some and Clowney will be more motivated to work harder in preparation. I see this as a learning moment that he will be better from.

I agree. I thought, Clowney had great effort. He was tired because he was trying so hard. UNC just did a good job against him. They were aware of him every paly, they couldn't keep from losing to the Gamecocks but they sure as heck weren't going to lose to Clowney, and they didn't. They ran their entire offense just to frustrate him it seemed. Oh, well 27 -10, on to the next one.

Due in large part to Clowney, we held one of the nation's best offenses to 10 pts. People are retarded. I am glad he is getting so much hate. I hope he reads it all and goes nuts against Murray. UGA won't run that many dang plays either.

It's a double edged sword in today's over hyped media world. You get the big build up and don't meet expectations of the hypers and they swing on you like a cycle. Price of fame whether we like it or not. That's the reality.

Dude's just tryin to be controversial & get some attention. He's not stupid enough to believe that. None of these people are.

And yes, the bar is ridiculously high. Anyone expecting what people currently are expecting doesn't understand how football positions work. The DE is not a position that will be in on massive numbers of plays every game, especially when a team has all summer to plan for one DE. He still disrupted several plays and ran people down for tackles several times. People are just ridiculous sometimes...well most of the time.

Spurrier said Clowney, Kelsey, and Chaz Sutton were doing sprints on their own after practices during camp, so it's not a conditioning thing it has to be the illness. I don't want to see bright lights or loud voices if I've been hovering over a toilet for hours and JD was still chasing screens sideline to sideline and splitting double teams. These booger eating headline chasers need to get a grip.

Default Re: Clowney unfairly criticized against UNC

The Gamecocks allowed a qb who averaged 300+ yards per game last year, to throw 43 times for 194 yards (4.5 per attempt) and allowed the tarholes to rush for 99 yards(2.8 per rush) and held a team that averaged 39 points per game to 10 points ; this was a team that allowed their defense to be exposed? Obviously, someone doesn't know sh** from shinola.
As for Clowney, I thought he play an above average game in 95 degree and very high humidity weather with a stomach "virus". What were these "talking heads" watching? Even Johnny football does not score on every play.
