Jadeveon Clowney Decapitates State of Michigan

Videos by OutKick

I don’t care what happens for the rest of bowl season, this is the play you will be seeing for the next decade or more. The time when the rest of the nation suddenly realized what those of us in the South have known for a long time, Jadeveon Clowney is a very, very bad man.

This is just freakish athleticism.

Watch the hit, then the way he scoops up the ball with one paw and continues to run.

Humans aren’t supposed to be able to do this.

Polar bears, maybe, but not humans.

The scariest thing about Clowney is that he doesn’t even look like a football player yet, he can still put on thirty or forty pounds of muscle.

When Clowney grows into his body, he’s going to make one lucky NFL fan base salivate for a decade.

I know the Colts had a Suck for Luck campaign, but is it too early to start a Clown for Clowney campaign?

I don’t think so.

South Carolina beat Michigan in the game of the bowl season thus far, but the game will fade as bowl games do.

But everyone will remember this hit.

It’s the play that made Clowney a legend.

The helmet goes six yards in the air!

I halfway expected for the head to still be in the helmet too.

The more times I watch this hit, the more spectacular it becomes. Look how fast Clowney gets into the backfield — hardly anyone on earth is this fast off the line — then the power of the hit that sends the helmet soaring into the backfield, followed by the wherewithal to palm — PALM– the football and try to return it for a touchdown?

It’s simply incredible.

Borderline inhuman, like Neo in the Matrix, the laws of physics don’t apply to Jadeveon Clowney. .

As I told y’all back in October, Clowney will be the number one pick in the 2014 draft. (For those of you who disagree with me about early entry, how much would it suck if Clowney gets hurt next year, like Lattimore did? The guy is ready for the NFL right now.)

Hell, he’d be the number one pick in this year’s draft if he was eligible to leave.



This is the defensive play version of Herschel Walker running over Bill Bates in the open field. For the next generation you’ll see this play whenever the SEC’s run of national dominance is discussed in sports histories.

Nation meet Jadeveon.
