Clowney ticketed again.

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney has been pulled over again for going at least 25 mph over the speed limit.

Clowney was stopped around 10:30 a.m. Thursday for going 84 mph in a 55 mph zone on Interstate 26 near Interstate 126, about five miles from the Gamecocks' campus, Columbia police said.

At least he'll have enough money to pay for it a week or so from now. He needs to go to driving school.

” -- Coach Steve Spurrier

The traffic stop happened about an hour before the Gamecocks flew to Florida for the Jan. 1 Capital One Bowl against Wisconsin. The game will be the junior's last for the Gamecocks as he leaves school early for the NFL draft.

It's Clowney's second ticket in three weeks. On Dec. 7, state troopers say, Clowney was going 110 mph in a 70 mph zone.

South Carolina's Steve Spurrier was asked about Clowney's latest ticket after the team landed in Orlando, and the coach did not sound too concerned.

"He needs to go to driving school, doesn't he? Somebody told me he got another speeding ticket today," Spurrier said. "At least he'll have enough money to pay for it a week or so from now. He needs to go to driving school. Hopefully they'll send him there after the bowl game."

Drivers pleading guilty to going at least 25 mph over the speed limit in South Carolina get six points. State law allows a license to be suspended after 12 points.

He's going to need allot of negative press to make it all the way to us at 6. Also, these speeding tickets will make him more appealing to the Raiders who pick ahead of us.

If anybody holds speeding against you as a "character flaw" then that person needs to have their character reassessed.
