Steve Spurrier tired of Jadeveon Clowney talk

Steve Spurrier wants to let everyone know that the South Carolina Gamecocks are more than just defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney.

“You know, we have talked about Jadeveon for seven months after that hit,” Spurrier said on Sunday. “He and Johnny Football (Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel), they are the only two guys in America anybody has talked about it seems like — Jadeveon’s hit and Johnny’s adventures all over the country. I think Jadeveon is tired of everybody talking about him. He’s ready for team, and hopefully what our team can achieve this year. We all know he’s a super player, but it’s a team sport.”

Spurrier has already closed off practice as the school has been overloaded with fans seeking photos and autographs.

“Poor Jadeveon can’t even hardly get out on the field without getting somebody mad at him, so we just have to eliminate open practices, and we have to get some security guys out there, make sure our guys can get in and out of practice without having to sign autographs all the way up and down the field,” Spurrier said.

The old ball coach is tired of all the attention.

“He’s tired of [the questions], and I think I am tired of it. We are just trying to get more into team stuff.”
