Eric LeGrand, the inspirational former Rutgers football player who got paralyzed after breaking his neck on a kickoff play, said South Carolina defensive end Jedeveon Clowney’s monster hit on a Michigan running back in the 2013 Outback Bowl was legal. 

“There’s no way #clowneyhit is illegal,” LeGrand tweeted earlier this week. “Take it from a guy who broke his neck.”

He also said that he loved the fact that football is a violent game in response to officials who said Clowney’s hit would be illegal under college football’s new “targeting” rules this season.
