If you can’t beat ’em, just cheap shot ’em?

South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is expected to make a serious run at the Heisman Trophy in 2013. However, his junior season could have easily been cut short when a North Carolina offensive lineman blatantly cut Clowney at the knees from behind well after a Bryn Renner pass was thrown.

Clowney and Co. are 1-0 on the young season following a 27-10 win. Oh yeah, and they have cross-border bragging rights on this “big ugly,” his teammates, and Tar Heels everywhere until the next time these two programs meet on the gridiron.

Hopefully by then UNC will be playing clean football.
