Get the other 10 defenders to play better. Then Clowney will show out.

I don't care. What I want Ward to focus on is getting everyone else AROUND Clowney to actually play D. Clowney is doing his job, it's the other guys that need to step up and help.

How does one get judged on Heisman level? He has an impact on every game. through 3 games last year: 13 total tackles, 3 sacks against Vandy, ECU and UAB. This year he has 10 total tackles and 2 sacks agains UNC, UGA, and Vandy. I'm not sure he's lost a step.

Mike Davis has a better chance of winning the Heisman this year.

Not a knock on Clowney, but he would have to take over every game from here on out and score a td in every other game to get invited to NYC, let alone win it.

Default Re: What can Ward do to get Clowney back to Heisman level

Clowney is doing just fine ! Quit out thinking yourself and line Clowney up at end, on the wide side of the field. If other teams are going to run away from him, then they'll have to do it to the short side.........................Simple as that. Any strategy to the contrary will lead to disruption in the flow of our defense.

Default Re: What can Ward do to get Clowney back to Heisman level

If you expect Clowney to have 3+ sacks in every game then you are fooling yourself. He will be double and triple teamed all season with 50+% play being purposely ran the other way. He won't win the Heisman because teams will lose before they let him beat them himself.

Look at the difference between what Clowney sees and what Beasley at Clemson sees. Beasley is getting all the praise right now because he's able to go 1-1. Clowney is going 1-2 on every single play.

This. If the rest of the defense is capable of stepping up their game, offenses will be put between a rock and a hard place. At that point, Clowney will get his numbers. Not that the numbers matter all that much....

Nothing. Mike Davis is the next Carolina player to have a chance at this rate.

Its time to move on. Here are the facts, Ward Nor Clowney can make teams stop running plays away form Clowney. They can't stop teams from making the quick pass, They can't stop teams from double and triple teams against Clowney. Clowney plays defense so he will not touch the ball the majority of downs. Here is the best fact the Voters of the Heisman understand what teams are doing to equalize Clowney's impact. The fact is no other player in College football can change the entire offensive game plan like Clowney. To me that is Heisman enough. To those who can understand his impact not his numbers, basketball is in two months try another sport. More NFL scouts are coming to games in Columbia, More recruits are visiting, More Worldwide news coverage, More student applications, More donations, More players will be seen that are not invited to the NFL COMBINE. CLOWNEY WINS THE ESPY'S. WAKE UP, HIS IMPACT ON CAROLINA FOOTBALL STARTED 3 YEARS AGO. Gamecocks 42, UCF 10

Default Re: What can Ward do to get Clowney back to Heisman level

One would think that if you line up Clowney on one side and teams intentionally run away from him, by default, just shift the LB's to the side opposite Clowney.

But I'm no coach, and while Clowney might not have "super stats" at this time yet in the season, forcing every team you play to pretty much adjust their entire gameplan to involve running away from Clowney = the ultimate compliment.

When a team actually has the balls to run it right at him, and he gets trucked...then we can talk about there being issues (except, of course, when some genius decides they want to drop him back into coverage on a 3rd down...).

I thought the Gamecocks were leading the SEC in sacks. I guess I was mistaken since Ward has been deficient in coaching up Clowney.

Default What can Ward do to get Clowney back to Heisman level

Ward's job is to make defensive strategy, not strategies of how to win individual players awards. What the actual f*** kind of question is this? OP, be embarrassed.

The most important thing he can do is to figure out a way to get his defense to be better against the run to force more long passing situations.

Yes, but ESPN can and they should!! ESPN should force our opponents to give Clowney the same opportunities that every other DE has to make a play. These other teams playing away from Clowney is impacting the television ratings. Put it this way. If Clowney had 8 sacks right now, I am sure more people would tune into our next game to see how Clowney performs.

ESPN should really get out in front of this and make sure that the other teams stop designing all of their plays around from Clowney.

Look, I am not asking ESPN to demand that other teams give Clowney an unfair advantage. If he gets beat on a play, he gets beat. But it would be in their best business interest to at least make sure that he is getting his chances.

Maybe one of us should send ESPN the stats of how many times play have been run away from him in case they haven't picked up on it yet. I am sure once they saw it, they would look into correcting it to hep ratings.

NO, I am not being serious!! :-)

They did during the Vandy game the announcers stated something like out of the approximately 65 plays that Clowney was on the field, 54 went away from him in the Georgia and North Carolina games.
