Thursday night, the Houston Texans made Jadeveon Clowney the No. 1 pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Following the selection, the former South Carolina defensive end answered questions from the media at a press conference. One reporter made the ill-fated mistake of thinking the All-American pass rusher attended Clemson, which, of course, is South Carolina’s hated rival.
Reporter here asked Clowney about his time at Clemson. “At Clemson? Excuse you.”

Clowney’s full response to the reporter who asked him “What did you major in at Clemson?”:
“At Clemson? Excuse you,” Clowney said. “You all right. You all right. Don’t do that no more about Clemson.”
It was just last week that Clowney refused to autograph anything with a Clemson logo on it. No matter where Clowney is, or what team he is playing for, it appears he will always have an extreme distaste for the Tigers.
