They were reading some article I think from GoGamecocks online that was discussing him skipping this year. I walked into the office before they gave their opinions, but it seemed that they thought he should skip this year. I will appreciate some cliffs if anyone is still listening.
Well if he does we can always thank Kornblut. So tired of hearing this.
Sweet, another thread about it
It is disturbing that so many well known pundits are saying that he should sit out. For selfish reasons, this is bad for the Gamecocks. But it is also bad for college football. It will ruin the game is the bigger star players actually start doing this.
i honestly believe that Clowney can be the first solely defensive player to win the Heisman. The fact that so many people think he could go #1 as a true sophomore only helps his cause for the award. Here's hoping that he plays like a maniac in 2013 and wins it.
I couldn't listen to it all, but Greenie was on board with it and Golic was saying he should play. Wish people would stop talking about it.
This is the response I expected from Greenie and Golic. JD will play this year. He loves the game, imo, to much to sit out.

that's about right. The guy who actually had a career playing the game says he should play. The dude who just likes to talk about it says he should sit.
I posted this thread to get cliffs on the rest of the conversation. Bumping the thread by posting in it doesn't make it go away genius.
mmm mmm mmm "South Carolina Gamecocks" Good

Bill Polian thought it was a bad idea.
said people would question his love for the game, and he would definitely raise some flags.
also said it would be unfair to someone else who could have used his scholly the last few years.

**** I'm not an insider, I just live here ****
This guy gets it....
anyone who has ever played football knows he should play. Problem is, half the journalist have never done 2 a days in 105 degree weather, run stadium steps until you cant pick your feet off the ground, or go hit for hit with a team and win/lose on the last play.
So to them, sitting out means nothing. To people who have played, it seems unfathomable
If this starts becoming an issue, say, with Nkemdiche in a few years, I bet you see a much stronger push towards paying college players.
In recent years, GM's have put a bigger emphasis on the character of the people they draft. I would imagine some may have some reservations about him if he were to abandon his team and decide to stop playing.
The difference between pick #1 and pick #10 last year was about $10 million dollars, most of it in guaranteed money. If sitting out a year is enough to push him down the draft boards even a little, he just cost himself millions of dollars. Guys can come back from injuries, but you rarely come back from losing your fire.
This is ridiculous. The system is what it is. If he wants to quit school and go hang out and train in Florida or Arizona for the next year on some agent's dime, then more power to him. However, it shouldn't be a USC or a college football issue. He knew the deal when he came to school, and the NFL is the one setting the rules anyway. They don't want to babysit minors.

I'm playing lol
^ He did post this on Twitter about 9 hrs ago. Not sure if it directly relates to football, but I would assume so........unless he's gaming it up on the sticks? (FIFA 13 maybe?)
"Happiness only real when shared"
Just from a mod point of view, I pray Clowney doent have a little fun with us on April fool's day.
I guess all these talking heads would agree that NFL "stars" should sit out games when their team is out of the playoff hunt No use risking an injury that could prevent them from future contracts.

This situation is laughable to me. I don't recall these same talking heads saying LeBron James should sit out his senior year in HS back in 2003 when he was guaranteed #1 overall pick and had a huge bidding war between all the shoe companies. Same with Andrew Luck in more recent times.
I bet Erin Murray fed this idea to kornblot
I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick ass, and I am all out of bubble gum.
