(Sports) USC’s Spurrier Seems Unsure When Asked If Jadeveon Clowney Wants To Play

Clowney came to the coaches before the game and said that bruised ribs that kept him from practice Thursday were too sore for him to play.

So the 6-foot-6, 274-pound All-American watched the Gamecocks’ 35-28 win against Kentucky from the sidelines, chatting with teammates as South Carolina lost a large lead for the third straight game.

If Clowney “wants to play, we will welcome him to come play for the team if he wants,” Spurrier said after the game. “But if he doesn’t want to play, he doesn’t have to play. Simple as that.”

On Sunday, Spurrier reclassified Clowney’s injury as a muscle strain. Spurrier said the frustration he expressed a day earlier was a result of how late Clowney waited to tell his coaches he wouldn’t play.

“It was just we didn’t know he wasn’t playing until right before the game,” Spurrier said. “That is always a little frustrating. Usually the trainer or doctor comes and tells you this guy is out, and that did not happen last night. But on the other side if a player is in pain and can’t play, I don’t want him to play. None of us do.”

Asked about Clowney’s commitment to the Gamecocks, Spurrier said, “You’ll have to ask him that.”

Spurrier’s kept Clowney on a short leash with the media since early August, letting him speak only after games. Spurrier said that would change this week to give Clowney a chance to explain his injury.

Defensive coordinator Lorenzo Ward said Saturday he thought Clowney would play during the team’s walk-through and was surprised when he learned he wouldn’t be playing.

(News) J.Cole Thought Jay-Z Was Part of Illuminati

Hip hop fans have been obsessed with Illuminati rumors for the past few years now. Roc Nation rapper J. Cole admitted in a recent interview that he was one of those people convinced every upper-echelon rapper was a part of some evil secret society prior to joining Jay-Z’s label.

“You know, it’s crazy. Before I got a deal and became apart of the industry, I was one of those people,” Cole told The Smoking Section. “Like, I wasn’t on it all the time, but I’m a conspiracy theorist. Like, I believed those videos. So there were times where I’d look at a video that’s like, ‘Jay-Z, a member of The Illuminati!’ and I would be like, ‘Ohhhh! Like, yoooo! How is…’ and then you meet him, and you see how things work and you’re like, ‘Nah, man. That’s bogus.’ That’s somebody who’s so far away from the truth and what’s actually happening, just creating something. They’re probably high. But nah, it’s not true.”
