Clowney’s impact can’t be summarized by statistics

S

outh Carolina coach Steve Spurrier was clearly frustrated. The Gamecocks had just scraped by with a 35-28 victory over Kentucky, and the immediate line of questioning was focused on why the highly touted Jadeveon Clowney had missed the game. Clowney had come to Spurrier just before the start of the game and said he couldn’t play because of pain from what was later diagnosed as strained rib muscles. It was a communication breakdown among Clowney, the training staff and Spurrier. “He may not be able to play [against Arkansas], I don’t know,” Spurrier said at a post-game press conference. (Clowney would play against Arkansas.) “But we’re not going to worry about it, I can assure you that. If he wants to play, we’ll welcome him to come play for the team if he wants to. If he doesn’t want to play, he doesn’t have to. It’s as simple as that.” Three days later, clarity returned, and Spurrier responded with an eloquent mini-soliloquy

that summed up Clowney’s career, and what the star defensive end has meant to the Gamecocks. “We didn’t handle it well, I think the whole group of us,” Spurrier said at his Tuesday press conference before the Arkansas game. “But let me say this about Jadeveon: If he never plays another snap here, we all should be thankful and appreciative that he came to South Carolina. We’ve won 26 games, [had] two 11-2 years. The greatest seasons we’ve had in the history of this school in 120 years. So none of us need to be upset at Jadeveon, none of us.” “He has played his part tremendously,” Spurrier continued. “I think we’re 26-5 since he suited up at South Carolina. I’m all for Jadeveon and his future. When he is ready to play we’re going to put him out there. He has been coming to treatment, I think, twice a day and told me he is doing everything he can to try to get ready to play.” “I just want to clear the air that Jadeveon — all those No. 7 jerseys and all the money he has made for our school — he has been a

tremendous, important player,” he ended. “Every Gamecock, including me, the coaches and everybody else, we need to be appreciative that he chose South Carolina. He could have gone anywhere in the country. He is a big reason we have had those seasons. He is trying to do all he can to get ready to play.” As Clowney winds down his college career, Spurrier’s words ring true. If Jadeveon Clowney walks away from South Carolina tomorrow, the day after, or after the final game the Gamecocks play this season, his contributions have been significant. In many ways, Clowney has been the victim of absurdly high expectations: He was South Carolina’s Mr. Football at Rock Hill’s South Pointe High School, and he was rated as the No. 1 overall prospect of the 2011 class by both major recruiting services, rivals.com and scout.com, as well as by ESPN. In spite of his hype, Clowney didn’t start right away: He played mostly in a reserve role as a freshman, but played well enough to earn Freshman All-America honors. Last season was Clowney’s breakthrough, when his exploits

helped create a media monster. He set school records for sacks in a season (13) and tackles for loss (23.5). He was SEC Defensive Player of the Year. He was a unanimous first-team All-American. He won the Ted Hendricks Award, given to the nation’s most outstanding defensive end. But it was his hit on Michigan’s Vincent Smith in the Outback Bowl, which won an ESPY Award for Play of the Year, that pushed his star status over the top. With the hype came increased scrutiny, speculation and criticism. There were false reports over the summer that Clowney would sit out his junior season and wait on the NFL draft, where he is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick. During preseason workouts, Clowney missed several days with nagging injuries, causing outsiders to question his will to play and his conditioning. Then, when Clowney didn’t put up the same types of numbers in tackles and sacks as last year, the criticism poured in. Clowney says he hasn’t let the naysaying bother him. “I’m not frustrated,” he said after the Kentucky game. “Other people are frustrated way more than I am. I’m just here to do my MISSISSIPPI STATE VS. USC

job, do what I’ve got to do. I’m just a kid having fun. That’s what it’s all about to me anyway, going to school, having fun and playing football. I just look at it, take it in stride and do what I’ve got to do.” It’s doubtful the negative buzz surrounding Clowney will have much impact on his draft stock. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. still has Clowney ranked as the top prospect on his pre-draft rankings. “Clowney’s inability to get to 100 percent this season has been the big storyline, but I also wouldn’t be offended by a lot of caution,” Kiper writes. “When he’s right, Clowney has great strength and quickness as well as strong hands to quickly shed blocks. He’s not just an edge rusher looking to quickly turn a corner, as he beats average tackles both inside and outside, which causes many double teams. His quickness can get him in trouble with over pursuit but that’s a good problem to have.” NFL scouts are likely to overlook Clowney’s downturn in production, recognizing that it’s

a matter of what opponents are doing rather than what Clowney isn’t doing. Opposing defenses are doubleand triple-teaming Clowney, if they even dare run a play to his side. Mostly, they simply run away from him. “People have been on JD all year and he has played hard every game,” says South Carolina defensive line coach Deke Adams. “There has not been one time this year that he has stepped on the field that I say, ‘OK, you just didn’t play hard.’ There is not one time this season when I could say that. If you looked at the film and sat down and watched every play, the things people were doing to him, I don’t think anybody else would say that either. We know he’s probably one of the most schemed up players in the country right now.” Clowney’s numbers aren’t as gaudy as they were last year, but his presence is felt in every game. Watch enough South Carolina football and it’s there to see: the times Clowney hurries a throw by MISSISSIPPI STATE VS. USC

the quarterback; forces a tailback too deep in the backfield to make yardage, or chases him into the welcoming arms of defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles or defensive end Chaz Sutton on the other side. “We’re doing things to try and give him a chance to get free and make plays,” Adams says. “He’s doing a great job. When the ball goes away from him, he’s running the ball down from behind. He’s doing a great job. We just want him to keep playing the way he’s playing.” Along the way, Clowney has gradually taken on more leadership. The cameras follow nearly his every move, and it’s a rare sideline shot that doesn’t include him talking animatedly to his teammates, encouraging them to play harder. “I tell you, he has really stepped up in a leadership role that we’ve been trying to get him to do for a while,” Adams says. “And the kids are really buying into it and following him. He’s just got to keep doing it.” Clowney says he’s ready to do his part — always has been, always will be. He has a bright future in the NFL, but he’s not quite ready to close the door on his career at South Carolina. “I’ve always been about the team,” he said in October. “Regardless of what people say, I’ve always been about the team my whole life. I dedicate myself to this team and this university and that’s why I chose to come here. I’m just going to keep doing what I have to do to get better and come back out there and play.” Jadeveon Clowney eyes Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley on Oct. 19 in Knoxville, Tenn.

EXPLAINING THE GAME

BY Chris Dearing

Steady As He Goes Offensive line coach Shawn Elliott preaches consistency

S

outh Carolina offensive line coach Shawn Elliott focuses on the here and now. What you did last year or even last week doesn’t matter. Elliott, who is in his fourth season guiding the Gamecocks’ offensive line, stresses to his players that last week is over, and to look to the challenge ahead. He believes the only way to do that is to continue to improve week in and week out. “You’re only as good as your last game,” Elliott says. “I try not to look ahead or look behind. I try to continue … to get better, and I feel we’re heading in the right direction, but it can all go south quickly. We have to stay focused and not get over-confident. We just have to go out and do our job.” One of the main words Elliott uses each week is “consistency.” “If you don’t have consistency, you just have a whole lot of things going on up there and it’s usually not good,” he says. Elliott is also a coach who plays the five guys who are best prepared. He rarely rotates players once a game begins. South Carolina has faced some injury issues along the offensive front this season, and that has forced Elliott to go deeper into his bench than he would have liked. But make no mistake: He’s comfortable with the five guys that line up each week. “They all practice, so if one goes down, somebody has to step up,” Elliott says. “I have no question that when some of the younger guys get an opportunity, they will go out and give

it their all.” Players understand that if they’re in the starting lineup that usually means they’re in there for the long haul. So off-season workouts to maintain season-long stamina are important. “The key is to have a great conditioned football team,” Elliott says. “If we are in great condition, I don’t worry about them. The best five will play all 90 snaps if there are 90 snaps to play.” The line was thought to be a strength of the offense coming into the season, and it hasn’t disappointed. The line returned four of five starters from last year’s 11-2 team — missing is center T.J. Johnson — and there is only one senior among this year’s starters in guard Ronald Patrick, which bodes well for the future. Cody Waldrop was penciled in to take over the center position, but he has battled a foot injury most of the season. That has forced Clayton Stadnik into action, and the results for the most part have been positive. Stadnik was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week after the Vanderbilt game in September, but he has struggled a little with the shotgun snap. Junior guard A.J. Cann is the rock, the most consistent player up front. Junior Corey Robinson and sophomore Brandon Shell have manned the tackle spots and been more than adequate. Having that experience has been key to bringing the younger guys along slowly. “Those older guys are

important,” Elliott says. “The young guys have to trust them and listen to them in advising them how to live and do the things that are expected. You have to have the older guys teach the younger guys how to do it and we’ve had that for a few years now.” Running back Mike Davis has emerged as one of the biggest threats in the SEC, and quarterbacks Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson have led an offense that routinely gains over 400 yards a contest. That offensive improvement starts with the offensive line, and Elliott hopes the Gamecocks can finish

the four-game streak at home as strong as they’ve been most of the season. “If we play assignment-orientated football, we’ll be OK,” Elliott says. “We can’t go out there and not know what to do. I have a goal in getting people prepared to play at a high level. I think you can play six guys, seven guys, but it is all dictated upon: Can they go out and play at that level? If they can’t, I’m not going to play them. The guys we’ve put out there have answered the bell. Let’s hope that continues.”

Cornerback Jimmy Legree leads by example

L

ike most Gamecocks this season, cornerback Jimmy Legree doesn’t see himself as the vocal type. “We don’t have a lot of talkers,” defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said last month. “It’s just by their nature that they’re not talkers, but we need to develop some leadership.” Whether he sees himself that way or not, Legree has morphed into a vocal leader South Carolina has been searching for to replace the

chatty D.J. Swearinger. Swearinger, now a defensive back with the Houston Texans, would wear a grill during games to make himself seem more intimidating and give his trash talk extra bite. He was known for giving the team motivational speeches before, during and after games. Legree isn’t Swearinger, but in his senior season, he’s stepped into a more vocal role, even though it’s not in his nature. His difficult past experi-

ences have bred maturity, and it’s shown this year. The way he was raised is not only the inspiration for his future plans, but it’s also what’s shaped Legree into the focused player he is this season. “I never really had much,” Legree says. “My mother had four kids and raised them on her own. My father passed when I was 12 years old, and just watching her struggle with all her kids was just something I did not like. I just want to help every kid out there have a fair opportunity.” If football isn’t in his future, Legree would like to start a program to help kids like him, who come from bad backgrounds, and give them “a fair chance at life.” While some college players struggle to comprehend life without football, Legree’s past hardships have given the ability to adapt in

BY Isabelle Khurshudyan uncomfortable situations. “I’m actually looking forward to the next step in my life,” Legree says. Cornerback Victor Hampton and quarterback Connor Shaw have noted a change in Legree’s leadership style; both say he’s been more vocal. Hampton has seen Legree make fewer mental errors on the field. Linebacker Marcquis Roberts says the team looks up to Legree. “I think in the past, Jimmy’s been one of those guys — quiet, humble, leads by the way he plays on the field,” Shaw says. “But I think through the offseason, coming into this season, he’s been more of a vocal guy on the defense, and that’s something that we have to have.” His play on the field has been elevated, too. Legree put an emphasis on improving his tackling last season, and through the first half of the year, he’s tied for the team lead in total tackles. When asked by a reporter what the favorable statistic means to him, Legree deadpanned that he didn’t even know he was doing so well as compared to others in the SEC. Coach Steve Spurrier remembers Legree being out of position once this year, but Legree also had a game-saving interception at the goal-line against Vanderbilt late in the fourth quarter. He had three interceptions last season, tied for the team lead. “Jimmy has a lot of ability, and sometimes he doesn’t show it every play,” Spurrier says. “He is a really good cover corner and he is a good tackler and just getting him focused and going every play. But he has had a good year.” Time will tell what the future holds for Legree and his big plans to make a difference in kids who come from troubled backgrounds. The present gives him reason to be encouraged. “I’d label myself as a leader,” Legree says, “just based on performance and showing the guys what to do and what not to do on and off the the field.” MISSISSIPPI STATE VS.

Pee Dee prospect Donell Stanley bolsters offensive line

S

outh Carolina Offensive line caoch Shawn Elliott believed he could rebuild the Gamecock offensive line when he took the job back in 2010. Four seasons later, Elliott has his group performing at a high level and has continued adding depth and talent to his pool of players. This month, Elliott added even more talent when highly touted offensive lineman Donell Stanley chose South Carolina. The four-star recruit from Latta

Height / Weight: 6-5 / 320 to him straight,” German said. “He let him know what they want from him, what he could do for the program. He said he wasn’t going to beg him, but he could have a home there. He responds well to it. Donell knows [Elliott] sees something in him, and he needs to listen to it.” Kelly Williamson, Stanley’s coach at Latta High School, believes that his star player is a quality individual off the field as well. “Donell is special,” he told gamecockcentral.com. “He is not in trouble. He isn’t hanging

“I like [Elliott’s] way of coaching. He is an energetic coach and is going to get his point across. He is going to push you to be the best you can be.” High School announced his decision, which he’d made in private more than a month prior to his public announcement, at a ceremony on his school’s campus. “It was closest to home, part of the SEC, and one of the top programs in the conference,” the 6-foot-5, 320-pounder told gamecockcentral.com after the announcement. “I like [Elliott’s] way of coaching. He is an energetic coach and is going to get his point across. He is going to push you to be the best you can be.” The Pee Dee product’s uncle, Chris German, guided Stanley during the recruiting process. He agreed with his nephew that Elliott played a large role in Stanley’s decision. “[Elliott] is going to shoot it

around people he shouldn’t be hanging around. He is doing the things he should be doing. He loves his teammates. He always wants to put the limelight on someone else. He always wants to help someone. He volunteers to be a coach at the rec. He is there after practice, after he does his work, he is always out there. That is just him. He is a real big thing around here.” Additionally, Willaimson thinks that Stanley will mesh well with Elliott’s coaching style. “He is going to get coached, but Donell lets that roll off his back,” Williamson said. “he knows what the mission [is] we are trying to accomplish and he doesn’t take it personally. I’ve gotten on him a bunch. I think he will respond well.” MISSISSIPPI STATE VS. USC

OPINION BY JAMES HARLEY

he drama has been relentless in the SEC East this year, with more than half of its teams considered legitimate contenders for the division crown at one point or another. Fortunately, the Gamecocks have a relatively kind cross-division schedule, as both Arkansas and Mississippi State are slumping this season. However, as we learned in the Tennessee game, that does not guarantee a win in this league, especially for a Carolina team that seems almost unable to play a complete game at full intensity. On the bright side, Mississippi State has a particularly bad résumé despite having played fewer conference games than any other SEC team. The Bulldogs have lost to every quality foe they have faced (Oklahoma State, Auburn and LSU), and have not scored a single win worth bragging about even slightly. After all, even lowly Bowling Green of the mighty Midwestern Athletic Conference gave the Bulldogs all they could handle, holding them scoreless in the second half before finally submitting 21-20. Still, there are a few things that work in Mississippi State’s favor this week, including the fact that the Bulldogs have a couple of extra days to prepare for the Gamecocks following last week’s Thursday night game against Kentucky, which they won. Of course, the Bulldogs have lost their last six games against Carolina, so even a decade of preparation hasn’t helped all that much, especially in Columbia, where their margin of loss has been consistently higher (15 points per game in Columbia versus six points per game in Starkville during that stretch). A more valid point of concern is the surprising strength of the Mississippi State defense, which despite giving up 59 points to LSU still ranks among the conference’s most effective squads in terms of yardage allowed. Keep in mind that many of those 59

points were the result of multiple turnovers by the Bulldogs offense in the fourth quarter, giving LSU a short field to work with. In fact, much like the Gamecocks, the Bulldogs have a pattern of foundering in the fourth quarter, surrendering 28 points to LSU 28 and giving away a game to Auburn on a late touchdown. This tendency at least provides a little hope that Carolina’s own late game weakness could be somewhat offset. If nothing else, it will give fans a reason to hang around until the end of the game, because with these teams, anything can happen in those last 15 minutes. This game, however, is not really about statistical or categorical matchups, because the Gamecocks are far too inconsistent to rely on any analysis of the numbers. Averages simply don’t speak to the extremes of Carolina’s performance this season, nor of Mississippi State’s. The game will be decided partly by the spirit of competition, the desire to win — and which team has the most of it. Obviously, a lot is on the line for the Gamecocks, but Mississippi State has its bowl eligibility in mind, as the remainder of its schedule is fairly brutal: Alabama, Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Arkansas. The Bulldogs need multiple wins and will only have a legitimate chance in a few of these games, including this one; that should give the Bulldogs a reason to show up ready to play. But much more, this game will simply come down to which team has the depth, which team is stronger and faster from top to bottom. It will likely be a sloppy, mistake-filled game, with the victory going to whichever team can overcome this by winning the majority of plays between the inevitable gaffes. That should be Carolina, though only time will tell. Gamecocks 24, Bulldogs 20. MISSISSIPPI STATE VS. USC
