USA Today Sports South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney expressed his frustration for his role in the Gamecocks struggling defense after Saturday’s loss to Georgia. “Very frustrating,” Clowney said via ESPN.com. “I told the coaches you got to put me somewhere else — in the middle if you want to — somewhere I can make some plays [to] help my team get in position to win. But [Georgia] took me right out of the game.” Clowney, the reigning SEC Defensive Player of the Year, recorded three tackles and one sack in Saturday’s 41-30 loss to the Bulldogs. “It’s hard out there trying to chase from the backside, and they just took me right out of the game,” Clowney said. “They want to move me around — that’s up to them. “I’m going to keep playing my assignments. I set the edge most of the night, [but] the ball went away from me on the backside chasing. That’s just how the game went.” Clowney, who had a school-record 13 sacks last season, is considered the favorite for the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s NFL draft. Head coach Steve Spurrier acknowledged that the defensive schemes need to be more creative. “I look out there and I see all those either redshirt freshmen or second-year guys and I’m starting to wonder if we were expecting a little bit much out of all those guys,” Spurrier said. “But it is a freshmen-laden defense out there, and they’re going to take their lumps, I guess. “But we’ve got to be creative. We’re going to change our defense a little bit. We’re not going to just stand there like we did today. I’ll give Coach Ward some suggestions.” The post Jadeveon Clowney frustrated with role in South Carolina’s defense appeared first on Sports Glory.
