Mizzou's Ealy: USC Clowney Is No God

Gamecocks_Jadeveon_Clowney_2013God would probably have more than two sacks in six games, so perhaps Mizzou defensive end Kony Ealy is on to something here.

For whatever the reason illness, injury, opponent schemes, etc. South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney only has two sacks through six games this year, although he looked more like his usual disruptive self last Saturday at Tennessee (2 1/2 tackles for loss, two quarterback hurries).

On the flip side, though, Ealy has an up-close look at one of the nations most successful pass-rushers opposite him at defensive end. Michael Sams nine sacks are tied for the most among FBS players with Clemsons Vic Beasley.

With three more sacks, Sam will break Aldon Smiths Mizzou single-season sack record of 11 1/2. Thats not what God looks like, but its closer than what Clowneys done this year.
