At some point, the question of is Jerry Kill healthy enough to coach needs to be asked.

Now Jadeveon Clowney sits out a game for South Carolina? Soundbites from Spurrier sound like he's getting a bit pissed.

As talented as Clowney is, I can't help but wonder if he's the monster he has been made out to be if he doesn't make that huge hit versus Michigan in the Bowl game last season.

To hell with grammar! Resistance is futile.

The first I heard of him and this was a sports writer on Twitter saying the same after Kill's previous seizure. You love your work and you've risen to near the top of the profession, etc., I appreciate that. But this isn't good for you.

That hit was a product of being in the right place at the right time. The running back had justnow been handed the ball when Clowney hit him. It looked good, sure, but just about any big time football program defensive end would've looked first round worthy given the same situation.

I watch a lot of SEC football, and I definitely saw Clowney as being as dominant as reported. While that Michigan hit certainly helped pushed him into the stratosphere, he had dominant games during the regular season and was in the running for SEC defensive player of the year for a reason. Regardless, I've always had a hard time believing he'd go overall #1 in the draft.

Jason Whitlock talked about Clowney today, and the biggest concern being he (Clowney) just doesn't love football that much. If that is true, devoting the first pick in the draft to him may be devastating to a team.
