Michigan running back Vincent Smith was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time back at the beginning of January. It’s not his fault South Carolina defensive lineman Jadeveon Clowney timed a play perfectly and someone missed a block. It’s also not Smith’s fault that the best player in college football laid the hit of the century on him and forced him to cough up the ball, but it happened.
And now, Smith has to live with it. As if it wasn’t already bad enough that he still has to see himself on “SportsCenter” and in sarcastic newspaper ads, South Carolina has now decided to make a photograph of the play the cover of its spring football guide. Since Clowney recently assured everyone he would never consider sitting out a season, I don’t blame them for finding every way they can to remind fans of the hit.
