Jadeveon Clowney's Monster Hit Leads to Wikipedia Change, Legendary Status

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterJanuary 3, 2013

The good people over at Wikipedia have no sense of humor because a wildly hilarious claim on Jadeveon Clowney's page has been changed back to reflect the facts. 

Boring, old facts. 

BuzzFeed was able to capture an image of what the South Carolina defensive end's page used to look like on the heels of the biggest hit in recent memory. 

Here is how one should view Clowney's page. 

Unfortunately, the following is now omitted, making Wikipedia a far less jubilant place. 

In the Outback Bowl, Clowney obliterated the entire state of Michigan when he hit Wolverines' running back Vincent Smith and forced a fumble. There are now only 49 states in the United States and Roger Goodell has suspended Clowney for the first game of his NFL career.

I would encourage those in the Northern Ohio and Indiana areas to look out their windows and please confirm Michigan does still indeed exist. 

For those uninitiated—and there are not many of you—here is the hit that has the whole nation talking and left the state of Michigan a smoldering mess. 

The sophomore, who has every NFL team licking its chops, laid the hurt on Michigan running back Vincent Smith in the fourth quarter of an eventual Outback Bowl win for the Gamecocks. 

What's more, South Carolina was jobbed by the referees in the previous play with a first down that should have never been given. 

The legend of Clowney continues to grow.
