Unfortunately for Michigan running back Vincent Smith, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is one of the best players in college football. Otherwise, the Wolverines may have won the Outback Bowl rather than Smith feeling the wrath of Clowney and essentially fumbling the game away. That, and there wouldn’t still be South Carolina newspapers making jokes at Smith’s expense. As you can see from the photo above that Twitter user @AdamCTwitty passed along (via the Detroit Free Press), a South Carolina paper recently ran a sarcastic advertisement asking if anyone has seen Smith’s helmet. If for some reason you have forgotten the hit that Clowney put on Smith that sent his helmet flying and shook the universe, go ahead and click here. If it’s any consolation to Smith, Clowney would likely be the top overall pick in the NFL draft if eligibility rules weren’t forcing him to stay at South Carolina for another year. My guess is the 256-pound sophomore hasn’t sent his last helmet flying through the air.
