I think we initially missed this ESPN Insider piece on the South Carolina Shrine Bowl team. You need to be an Insider for the full article, but I can legally excerpt a couple of the best quotes.
Clowney: "I looked at the North Carolina team and said, 'Man, they've got some big boys.' But down here in South Carolina we can hit. And we can play."
NC Head Coach: "We knew we needed to score early and we did. Then they brought in the Baltimore Ravens."
The writer also claims the best defensive unit to take the field over a weekend that included six minor bowls and the 1-AA playoffs was the Sandlapper unit.
