I was listening to that blow hard philpoot yesterday at lunch and a caller asked him who, I believe he said 5-10 years, between Carolina/Clemson had the better success rate in regards to players/productivity in the NFL. Of course, philpoot hemed and hawed and eventually said I'd give a slight edge to the Gamecocks. I am going to list the players he listed for us and I want you to add who he left off.
I think he may have mentioned a couple of more, but can't recall. A couple that I was saying as he was fumbling around were to me quite obvious: Jonathan Joseph, Kenny McKinley, Stephon Gilmore and Jared Cook.
Of course he mentioned Spiller, Bowers, Gaines Adams, Ricky Sapp (said he would be an all pro but couldn't stay healthy, what a crock), Chris Clemons.
I don't really care what he says, but it's truly amazing what they will swirl in their minds to make them feel better about their program.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Jasper Brinkley and Ryan Succop
Troy Williamson and Jasper Brinkley.
Robert Brooks. Sterling Sharpe.
Bowers hasn't done anything. Gaines Adams... well we all know what happened there. Sapp sucks. Clemons is probably the best out of all of them, and that's because he's on a damn good team. Spiller is legit, as long as he doesn't get turf toe.
You can't see! I can't see! All that matters is can the f*&%ing horse see! That's a raid!
Is the criteria the number of players who have had great success in the NFL?
Or the number who were drafted? Or drafted highly?
Sheldon Brown, T Rob, Terry Cousins.
Andre Goodman also--he may not have been a superstar, but he had a long, productive career.
The only true consistent star that Clemson has had (that I can think of) is Brian Dawkins. I don't like to give Clemson credit for anything, but that guy could play.

Sheldon Brown (may be outside the 10 years)
Chris Culliver -SF
Darian Stewart -StL
jarrial King - TB
All started games this year
I won a bet this year I made in 08' that 5 guys from that team's Defense would all make active rosters. I won the bet this year.
So from the 08' defense alone these guys were active at some point:
Munnerlyn - .
Side note: 08' was a hell of a Defense!

If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
not sure Norwood was active at all this year..cut in preseason by Panthers (I think)
Believe L. JeanPierre is still on Seahawks roster. R. Watkins with Rams also.
Antonio Allen will be a starter somewhere soon. I have no doubt. If you sit back and think about it, Allen had one of the best years ever put together by a Gamecock last year. He was a stud.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
yea, didn't mean to say this year. Active at some point since 08'.
Tori Gurley has been on a couple of practice sqauds for sure - not sure if he has played in a regular game yet. Still getting paid.

Hate to help out the taters, but their own guy left off Barry Richardson. I had to rep a hometown boy.
Sean Smith is still in league I think
Succop and Dimarco
