Now as football pumps through my veins, when it comes to College football I'm more about the "bandwagon" then the love many of you spew over one particular university.
I watch in anticipation of those players who will take their game to All- American NFL draft prospect status. The special ones that elevate their game to Heisman caliber "ala" Reggie Bush(I don't care he gave it back the season he had was special), Cam Newton, RGIII, Tim Tebow, Johnny Manziel all special offensive talents.
This season there's a different smell in the air...it kinda makes your nose itch a little....and it's coming from South Carolina...The young mans name is Jadeveon Clowney. The junior defensive end who is all ready being called " A once in a decade " prospect by many if not all NFL Gm's and has already been linked to being targeted by Jay-Z's Roc Nation agency. Since Charles Woodson in 1997 a defensive player has yet to win the prestigious award which we recently just witnessed Johnny Football trade in for a Lamborghini.....just kidding.... maybe...well, you tell me what you think? ..
Right out the gate we get a chance to witness the beast himself as Clowney and the No.6 Gamecocks take on North Carolina at 6pm on ESPN. With a couple other intriguing ones tonight with Rutgers at 10:30 and USC vs Hawaii at 11, UNC vs SC is the perfect prime time start to the year. It's rare that I watch a game solely for a defensive player let alone a linemen(that takes nothing away from the respect I have for those positions)...But I'm telling you, if you don't know who Jadeveon Clowney is you better be on your "P's and Q's" and get familiar whenever number 7 is on the field.
When you hear that drumline?? Oh it's game time!
Enjoy the start of the season!
