The OBC isn’t on board with Mark Richt’s high praise for Jadeveon Clowney. In fact, it sounds like he’s downright displeased with it.
“That was a little strong right there,” Spurrier said. “Obviously, Jadeveon is probably the best defensive lineman in college football. I think everyone agrees with that. But when you start putting linemen in there with quarterbacks, receivers and running backs, I don’t know what he’s trying to say. If he’s trying to fatten up Jadeveon’s thinking, I hope it doesn’t work.
“Jadeveon has had a lot of praise, a lot of attention the entire offseason. I think he’s handled it pretty well. He tries to stay out of the limelight. He doesn’t go to the clubs. He’s not out in public much, except when he has to go to class and so forth. I think he’s handled it well.”
I tell you what, between this and the schedule quip, I’d have to say Evil Richt is besting the Evil Genius in this year’s mental game battle so far.
