South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney had plenty to say Tuesday during the Southeastern Conference's annual media day.

Among the topics that Clowney, a first-team All-American and SEC Defensive Player of the Year last year, discussed was the Heisman Trophy:

"The Heisman is not a big deal for me," he said, via "Winning the SEC championship's a big deal to me. Getting drafted high is a big deal."

How to stay out of trouble in college:

"Just stay out of bars and stay off Twitter," he said.

And who is scared of the Gamecocks defense:

"You can see in his eyes that he's scared of our D-line," Clowney said about Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd, who he sacked 4.5 times last season in a 27-17 victory. "He is scared every time we play them. I know he's listening to this right now, but I'm telling the truth."

Clowney, who had 13 sacks, 23.5 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles last season, said Georgia's Aaron Murray and Nebraska's Taylor Martinez were also "scared" quarterbacks.
