    Clowney is a physical marvel, but at this point I would not trade any of Easley, Powell, and Fowler for him...Maybe he has the Jevon Kearse NFL-itis?

    Both UGA and USC had better skill position players at every position...Both QB's were better than Driskell, Gurley and Davis were better than our RB's, UGA's tight end was better, both teams WR's were better.

    One more..., pocket presence and cool under fire cannot be coached. You either have it or you don't.

    Both teams have a significantly better head coach as well.

    Not sure about that...considering the offensive talent gap.

    In terms of experience and accomplishments, that is not a hard observation to make. In year 3 as a head coach, you don't become better than a HOF coach and one that has one a couple of SEC titles and has several 10 win season.

    As much as I dislike Meyer he said something once that made a lot of sense. Players, who are very talented but come from schools that are small without a rich football tradition, don't fare nearly as well as players from big time schools. Tebow was an exception rather than the rule. Driskel is very talented, but by his own admission only played quarterback at his school because no one else could.
