if true, I imagine he had no chance of staying academically eligible this year and that is why he is sitting. I do not buy the whole, not wanting to get injured argument.

Do you honestly think Spurrier would let a player like Clowney not be "academically eligible"?


Not really sure that "quit going to class" would preclude

Some folks post ridiculous stuff just to get attention. Clowney is abt as apt to sit out this season as Boyd. Both are near sure 1st rounders. Sitting out is not an option for either and it would set a precedent that would, essentially, ruin CFB. Wishful thinking.....not gonna happen.

Surprise: College coach says Clowney should play in college

Posted by Darin Gantt on February 12, 2013, 4:27 PM EST

AP
There are many people who think South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is taking a huge risk by playing his junior season, since he’s ineligible to enter the NFL draft.

As you might imagine, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, whose mortgage payment rides on the backs of unpaid interns such as Clowney, disagrees.

Clowney himself scoffed at the notion, tweeting “I’m playing lol,” but Spurrier told Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal Constitution he thought the suggestion was off-base.

“Well, I hope he plays this year, and I certainly believe he should play,” Spurrier said. “Now if money was his only goal in life, then he couldn’t play. And he might not get into a car before next year’s draft, so he wouldn’t be in a car wreck and get injured. He would be just very, very careful for a year not to have any kind of injury.

“But Jadeveon likes football. Football players play football. They don’t wait around on this, that or the other. He’s really good about avoiding injuries and so forth. He knows how to get out of harm’s way if there’s a big pileup around a tackle. I think the odds of him getting hurt as not nearly as much as a running back or somebody like that.

“I think he wants to play. I certainly hope and believe he does. I think he should play for South Carolina this season.”

Spurrier said the reaction in the media was understandable, given that it’s the offseason (what are we supposed to talk about, basketball?). But he also disputed the idea that Clowney’s financial security (which he’d enjoy by being a top-five pick, if not higher) was the most important element.

“Most of the guys that say he should sit out, they don’t realize the benefits of being on a college football team, and continuing with your teammates to have as big of a year as you possibly can,” Spurrier said. “The money is going to be there down the road, so why would a person give up the thrill of playing college football?

“Those people have never played football, so they say he should sit out and get the money. That’s the only side of sports they see — the money. There’s a lot more to it than just the money.”

All that’s easy for Spurrier to say, because he keeps getting paid even when Marcus Lattimore’s knee gets turned into spaghetti.

And while there are good and noble intentions for wanting a young man to stay in school, the financial reality is that Clowney is gambling millions on the proposition that his luck is good enough to avoid injury.

I love watching Clowney play as much as James Harrison or Troy Palamalu. But his knees are going to be a target for every SEC offensive lineman next year. For a guy as talented as he is, the 3-yr rule should be waived.

Posted another thread on the topic but will say it here too. Anyone who loves college football should want him to play regardless of his team. Players skipping college is the last thing college football needs. Once someone does it others will follow.

Would agree when the player is playing for a coach who is as concerned about his players best interests as he is his (within reason). Latte ore debacle and the way SOS treated it after the fact should tell all of his players they better watch out for themselves b/c the ole ball sack just don't give $&@@.
