07:35 AM ET 12.18 | Since Jadeveon Clowney last spoke with the media covering South Carolina, quite a bit has happened to the young man, but he preferred Tuesday to talk football. The Gamecocks had just defeated Florida on Nov. 16 when the defensive end last faced microphones and cameras. Thirty days later, after Tuesday's practice in preparation for the Jan. 1 game against Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl, Clowney did not talk about the speeding ticket he received a week ago when he was clocked going 110 miles per hour on I-77. ... Clowney had a less impressive junior season but is projected to be among the first three players selected in the 2014 NFL draft. Clowney was not in an NFL frame of mind Tuesday. He preferred to focus on his time at USC. "I'm going to miss it, man," he said. "I've really enjoyed it here."

Too late, all those possibilities and more have been considered. We in the B1G are certain that Slive put in a call to the po-lice and made sure all the salacious details were suppressed. ;-)

And kudos to you for your accurate portrayal of how to say "police" correctly, as in po-lice.


You sure you are from De-troit....?

Yep, but my Dad's Pennsylvannia relations always called it "Deee-troit."

Those of us who know the city's history, know that it is French (Pronounced day twa) for "the straights". If you pronounce it that way, none of the locals will know what you're talking about.

'I'm going to miss it'
------------------
Translation: "I'm going to miss being treated like a king by my coaches. I'll actually have to work hard and practice hard in the NFL to justify anyone giving me money."

Depends on how many QB's are taken if he will be one of the first three picks, but should be the first defensive player taken in the upcoming draft.

The University of South Carolina predates the University of Southern California. Troglodytes who crow that same phrase ignore history, lack humility, and so deny themselves wisdom and the favor of God.

Honestly, there are a number of players who should be drafted before Clowney. The media hype is over the top. If he gets a NFL gig, he would be wise to ignore the blathering and focus on preparing to contribute to his new team.

They have been around longer, yet somehow we have a better and more distinguished history. The Good Lord smiles upon us.
