Jadeveon Clowney did not have the best night in his 2013 debut, as he appeared tired for most of South Carolina's 27-10 win over North Carolina on Thursday night. However, not helping matters was North Carolina offensive tackle offensive tackle.

Well after North Carolina quarterback Bryn Renner threw a pass, this happened.

Now, I can't tell you what was in the head of North Carolina offensive tackle Kiaro Holts in this play. All I can tell you is that this happened after the pass was gone, and that, even if Holts did just slip, that lunge toward the back of Clowney's knees sure didn't look accidental to me.

And if it wasn't accidental, well, if defensive players can be ejected from a game for targeting, all I can say is that it should work both ways. No, Holt isn't threatening Jadeveon Clowney's brain by diving at his legs, but he is threatening his career.
