Spurrier Jokes That Clowney Should Wait Until After Bowl Game For Autographs So He Can Charge
Tomorrow afternoon when South Carolina and Wisconsin will square off in the Capital One Bowl, it will be the final chance for Gamecocks fans to watch Jadeveon Clowney at the college level — the defensive superstar will be heading to the NFL following the season. Today, head coach Steve Spurrier was cracking a ton of jokes on Clowney and his departure — it was awesome.
First, he said that Clowney should wait until after the game to sign autographs for fans — that way he can charge for them:
Spurrier on Clowney: ‘He’ll be an instant pro’ when the game ends. Can start charging for autographs then.

Spurrier is really going to miss coaching someone as talented as Clowney.
