By now, you’ve probably seen or heard about Jadeveon Clowney’s “monster” sled flip at a South Carolina practice last week. While we all know Clowney is a beast, some think his sled flip wasn’t really that impressive.
After the video from practice went viral, many fans took to Twitter to express that exact feeling. Notre Dame’s SID even took a shot at Clowney by tweeting a video of the Irish’s Troy Niklas flipping a sled by himself at practice.
Now, Kentucky quarterback Maxwell Smith is giving us his two cents. During an interview with The Courier-Journal’s Kyle Tucker, Smith said UK’s Bud Dupree and Za’Darius Smith could easily flip a sled, too.
“That was a two-man sled, you know what I’m saying? They give him all the credit, but it was a two-man sled. I guarantee you Bud and Za’Darius could do that easy.”
Obviously, the football world disagrees on how impressive Clowney’s sled flip was — many media outlets and fans seemed to think it was notable, but there has been some backlash as well. What are your thoughts? Was the Clowney feat impressive, or overrated?
