The Clemson vs. South Carolina rivalry is alive and well, folks. Yesterday, star Gamecocks defensive end Jadeveon Clowney made waves when he stated that he knows that certain quarterbacks “fear” him – namely Clemson’s Tajh Boyd and Georgia’s Aaron Murray. Jadeveon Clowney talking abt seeing fear in the eyes of #Clemson QB Tajh Boyd. Said he knows #UGA‘s Aaron Murray’s also scared. — Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) July 16, 2013 Well, as you’d imagine, Clowney’s statements ticked off a few people. Enter DeAndre Hopkins, current Houston Texan and former Clemson Tiger. Hopkins, who was drafted in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft, had a few things to say on Twitter today about the situation. Real men do the talking on the field @TajhB10 — Deandre Hopkins (@Nukdabomb) July 17, 2013 gamecock fans @JJWatt had 20 sacks last season in the (NFL) and never talked negative ab any QB , y’all will learn class one day I hope — Deandre Hopkins (@Nukdabomb) July 17, 2013 Boyd retweeted Hopkins’ tweet, clearly showing he agrees. Given the fact that Clowney is a virtual lock to go in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft, we should see these two on the field against each other in the not-so-distant future. Did Clowney overstep here, or is this much ado about nothing?
