That's an unfair generalization. Clowney's tape from the Outback bowl is great and all (especially considering he's going against a potential 1st-round pick in Lewan) but I've been more impressed from his 2013 tape so far like his games against UNC (when he was dealing with a stomach virus) and Tennessee (where he didn't register a sack but basically lived in the backfield and it is most apparent that he's being schemed against - all while facing Antonio Richardson). Anyone who only uses The Hit to argue for Clowney is doing themselves a disservice, if anything.

And BHSman, you asked me for proof in another thread and I quoted a credible source and you just completely ignored it and took a random shot at me. Get out of here bro.
If that's the case, I apologize if I didn't address your argument fully. I'll see if I can find it if you don't repost the link here later.

"GIVE ME A SOURCE! GIVE ME A SOURCE!" Then you get it and you dismiss it. Here's your source bro, let me teach you how to Google, try any of the first 15 links you see from credible websites:

.
That is a very fancy way of telling me you don't have a direct source from South Carolina telling us about Clowney's work ethic, just a lot of hot air from the media. Half of those links are either about Clowney admitting his 2012 season could have been better and has since improved upon his work ethic, or from earlier in the season before it came out that he was dealing with a rib injury and bone spurs.

Even then a lot of them are some faceless 'NFL exec' or the words of a single scout from an earlier article magically becoming 'NFL Scouts' a month later. When I talk about sources, I'm talking about Spurrier or a coach, and even then I defer to tape. The exact same thing happened with Alshon Jeffery last year with people dragging a player's name through the mud over exaggerated 'red flags' despite the coaches and tape saying otherwise. Hell, an unsourced comment about Clowney with vague, non-specific references to an 'entourage' have brought out people claiming he still has too much 'hood' in him. Not you in particular, of course.

To an extent, I think a few Texans fans are hung up on how Mario turned out and are projecting that fear and resentment onto Clowney.
