Andrew Sharp on Jadeveon Clowney:
On the sixth day God created Clowney and on the seventh day everyone was dead.While I found this pretty humorous, I do think it playing with that gnawing knowledge in the back of our heads that football is becoming more and more dangerous. The future of the sport will be interesting.
And all I'm saying is, after rereading those numbers from Feldman on Wednesday and rewatching that Michigan clip 10 or 20 times in the past 24 hours, it's clear that Clowney should not be playing college football. Send him to the NBA for a year so he can break 50 backboards, shut down LeBron James, and end the year by shattering Blake Griffin's clavicle and getting banned from the league for life. There is no good reason the Sacramento Kings shouldn't draft Jadeveon Clowney in June.
Or he could mentor at-risk youth. And by "mentor" we mean stalk teenagers and stare them in the face as they consider breaking the law. Want to reduce crime and scare kids into staying in school? Pay Clowney to be a truancy officer. Or put him in the NHL, for the simple reason that the world needs a 6-foot-6 dreadlocked freak of nature roaming the ice. Or let him interrogate terror suspects. Or just broadcast a six-month version of the NFL combine where we watch him do incredible shit. I don't know.
Any of these alternatives would be safer.
