SEC Media Days 2013: Aaron Murray on Clowney’s Comments, “I enjoy getting hits”

Aaron Murray not shaken or stirred by Clowney’s “scared” comments.

It was the shot heard round the world as South Carolina’s Jadeveon Clowney said he knows who’s scared of him when he takes the field; unfortunately for Georgia Bulldog fans, one of the players he called out was Aaron Murray.

The star defensive end for South Carolina, and presumed No. 1 pick in the next NFL draft, was near the end of his interview session on Tuesday, when the subject of scared quarterbacks came up. Rather than just laugh off the subject, Clowney volunteered that three quarterbacks, to his knowledge, were scared of him.

“Aaron Murray is one of them,” Clowney said.

Whether Clowney meant the statement as a good-natured jab, only he knows for sure, but he certainly made life a little more difficult in the “prove it” department for a player like Murray who is already dealing with the “big game” stigma. Even so, Murray made certain to clarify one thing—he ain’t skeered of Clowney.
“I enjoy getting hits,” Murray said. “I’m not scared of getting hit by anyone but I’m not worried by who says what. All we can do is keep working hard and have a good summer which we have had. There’s no fear, just all respect for him and what he’s able to do on the field.”
…Murray did admit that Clowney is a game-changer, a player you have to take special steps to try and contain.

“You have to be aware of him and you have to have a game-plan for how you’re going to block him, if you’re a running back, chip him. If you’re a tight end, chip him because it is tough,” (Anthony Dasher, Rivals)

The two teams will meet  in week two and it will be the last time Georgia fans will have to worry about Clowney wreaking havoc on anyone; he’s made it clear he’s gone after this year—money talks.

I, for one, won’t miss him.
