Watched 2014 Draft Academy and they played SOS's interview where he compared Clowney's work ethic to Lattermore and Gilmore.

It might be true but why hurt the program?

That was a significant slight by Spurrier.  Lot's of Gamecock fans want to say it was taken out of context, however it doesn't change the fact that haters grabbed it a ran with it like their hair was on fire.  Spurrier knows better but for whatever reason, he threw blood in the water.  He was being painfully honest as usual, he put barbs on it almost as if to settle some kind of score.  Clowney was that rare athlete that didn't have to do everything Spurrier asked him to do and I think it perturbed HBC's massive ego.  However, there's no question in my mind that Clowney sandbagged some of the games.  It will be interesting to see if he turns it up a notch now that payday has finally arrived.  It's gotta be a very different mindset when you realize you could have been playing for money 3 or 4 years ago.  I'm a big fan of Clowney and hope he finally plays to his full potential.

The dude was lazy, and it's a bigger shame because of the ability he has. It doesn't change the fact he's still a freak, Spurrier just answered honestly.

I for one would like to see him get with JJ Watts and play with authority. Because of pure entertainment alone, much like Manziel on the offensive side.

Spurrier later said no one works harder than Marcus Latimore so really a moot statement in comparison.

Probably why SC doesn't get elite QBs on a regular basis...... no doubt he would be a hell of a coach to learn under as a QB but who wants to be criticized publicly for any mistake you make or benched on a whim? He just doesn't seem to instill confidence nor to have his players back when needed. I will admit that I kind of wish Richt would be a tad more like this but Spurrier just takes it to the extreme it seems

That's part of the boy-to-man process of being a college athlete with pro aspirations; because if you don't have thick enough skin to handle some criticism from Spurs, you're in a whole helluva lot of trouble when you're playing in the NFL, where QB's are scrutinized constantly and mercilessly.

And Spurs' criticisms are usually constructive, but delivered with a bit of bite to those athletes who haven't responded to his mild-mannered suggestions. He and his staff have been trying to get that kid to play to his potential for 3 years with little success... I'm sure it's frustrating as a coach to see a dominant talent not dominate.

jab at clowney all you want.  he did seem lazy and I dint think all his talent will translate to the nfl.

but I will agree,  spurrier does not instill confidence.  at least publicly.  its all about negative reinforcement.

What he said was true. Negative or Positive you're going to get straight shooting from Spurrier. Which is what I like most about him. Lorenzo Ward stated early last season in a after practice interview that Clowney wasn't playing hard every down. No one made a thread about this then.

So not having the work ethic of someone who overcame two catastrophic knee injuries, or someone who came out of highschool as a three star before becoming an All American and top 10 overall draft pick= being lazy. Fukk outta here. You don't become as good as Clowney is while being lazy, doesn't matter how much you were born with.

Hell, Lattermore didn't really have much time to show off his work ethic. No way are any of Spurriers practices as difficult as rehab for a torn ligament. Any coaches practices for that matter. Some ppl don't realize how painful rehab really is for an athlete trying to come back just as strong.
