The public is so enamored with the freakish ability of Jadeveon Clowney that the internet went nuts over a recent video of Jadeveon Clowney and Gerald Dixon flipping over a sled. Admittedly, it’s not the most impressive feat, but college football fans are clamoring for all things Clowney…and for good reason.
Is that so bad? Clowney makes no headlines off the field. He makes them on the field, and after finishing the season with probably the best hit I’ve ever seen, fans are ready to watch him at any chance that they can in 2013.
It appears that one party, however, isn’t happy about the Clowney frenzy. Well, maybe two.
We expect the frustration from Clemson fans. After all, Spurrier’s Gamecocks have indeed embarrassed the cross-state Tigers in recent years.
But, how about the Irish? Well, you have to understand that the Irish have had a tough 2013.
The Notre Dame Sports Information Director tweeted out a video of Notre Dame’s Troy Niklas flipping a sled by himself.
I’m sure Mr. Bertsch realizes that flipping a sled has nothing to with fans wanting to watch Jadeveon Clowney on the football field. His incredible ability and what he’s already done on the field has created a scenario where fans want to see everything he does. Frankly, nobody cares what Troy Niklas did to a sled unless you’re a Notre Dame fan.
Alabama crushed any hint that the Irish had recaptured their former glory last season after an embarrassing BCS Championship performance despite an undefeated regular season.
The anti-SEC commentary will continue to increase by the other major programs of college football that continue to be frustrated with the SEC’s dominance and the corresponding conference pride that comes with it. Us fans will just continue to enjoy world class football talents like Jadeveon Clowney.
