Style: Wu Style TCC + BJJ
One of the guys I train with semi-regularly will often try to clinch me when we're doing stand-up. He's quite a bit bigger than I am (he's got about 65 pounds on me) and--while it's big fun to stand for hours at a time, trying to prevent myself from taking knees to the head--I'd really like to be able to escape from that position fairly quickly.
Sometimes I'll twist my hips and move in to throw or away to duck under (dangerous, I know). Shooting in also seems fairly risky, because I think I'm fucked if he sprawls well--all too easy from that position. Any suggestions?

But if you are serious...
You can try for a standing arm lock, jumping arm bar, slip down to a ankle lock, go behind him for a belly-to-back takedown, cross kick his front leg, an armbar takedown, a sacrifice throw, even a sneeky uppercut to creat an opening for a jumping spinning splits kick followed by a 2 1/2 twist and a full gainer !!

Bite his nose off.
Style: Alliance BJJ (Blue)
the clinch is a fun position. a couple fairly easy techniques to try to counter:
if you can get to the side a bit, try tani otoshi.
if not try stepping across the body for a sweep (the name escapes me).

I checked out tani otoshi at JudoInfo.com . . . it looks like a variation of TCC's single lotus to me, i.e. twisting/pulling down the torso, while sweeping the leg as part (the opposite side, really) of the same circular motion--only letting yourself fall sidways as you do this. From there, you land on his shoulder, controlling his arm. Is that correct?

Its one of the easier to apply sacrifice throws/sweeps.
Hard to do IF the guys is in a deep stance clinch, but if he is lazy and his legs are close...

not far off at all, though i think of it in the judo language because it is where i first saw the move (in college). looking at it from a TC perspective, you may want to look at it as a splitting action with some foot position and body movement as brush knee.
1% Shark is better than you.

I like to roll to mount as I do this throw, check oput my Tani Otoshi thread for a good video. If it's strictly stand-up you are pretty fucked with that weight disadvantage(assuming similar skill). Take a look at Thai clinch work too. There may be some openings you haven't seen especially if he leans forward at all.
