College football's No. 1 player called out two rival QBs.
For the most part, conference media days are a cliché fest. However, from time-to-time, there are a few gems that resonate throughout the offseason.
South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney dropped one of the top soundbites from the first day of SEC Media Days on Tuesday, calling out Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd and Georgia’s Aaron Murray.
Jadeveon Clowney, on Clemson's Tajh Boyd: "He's scared every time we play him."— David Morrison (@DavidCMorrison) July 16, 2013
Clowney also said he saw the fear in Aaron Murray and Tyler Wilson's eyes last year.

How did Boyd and Murray fare against South Carolina last season? Well, it wasn’t pretty. Murray went 11 of 31 for 109 yards and one interception, with Boyd completing 11 of 24 throws for 183 yards and two picks.
So is there truth to what Clowney was saying? I mean, who wouldn’t be intimidated by a 6-foot-6 defensive end with sub-4.6 speed?
Needless to say, Clowney’s comments should work well for bulletin board material at Georgia and Clemson, especially since those two matchups could be the toughest for South Carolina in 2013.
