Congrats to Jadeveon!


And I'm betting the AP list doesn't include either of those taters.

I heard Taj is being investigated by the NCAA. He wore an illegal uniform on saturday night. It had a 10 on the front and a 7 on the back.

The ACC named Tajh Boyd "Player of the Year." Jadeveon Clowney named Tajh Boyd "an after dinner snack."

First of all, congratulations to the very deserving Clowney.

Second, my mind is every bit as BLOWN as everyone elses about the selection of Tajh Boyd as a 1st team All-American. WTF?!?

This is a coaches team, so these are the only logical explanations I can come up with:

(1) EVERY ACC coach voted for Boyd, since he was the best QB in their joke of a conference...and they want to feel as good as they can about that pathetic league.

(2) The voting took place before we made Boyd look like the extremely ordinary QB he is (against real competition)

(3) The SEC -- which has at least 3 QBs better than Boyd: Manziel (who'll probably win the freakin' Heisman), McCarron (who leads the nation in pass efficiency), and Murray (who is 2nd in the nation in pass efficiency) -- split votes, thus not giving Manziel the ridiculous block-voting advantage the ACC coaches clearly gave Boyd.

The AP All-American team (which is the traditional gold standard of college All-American teams) will NOT give the nod to Boyd.

Clowney, of course, is a lock.

safe to say he'll be a consensus all american. i hope he gets at least one bit of extra hardware as far as sec defensive player of the year or one of the national awards because he deserves at least one.

I think he did get the whole acc vote since he was acc player of year. Also think he got big east and mac votes

As happy as I am about Clowney being named AA, the inclusion of Boyd and Dalton Freeman on the same AA team makes me question the voting. These two taters shouldn't even be All Conference for the Athletically Challenged Conference.

Congrats to Clowney. He is a first team all everything. But the addition of Boyd and to some extent Dalton cast doubts of the legitimacy of the selections.

congrats to clowney with the assist to whammy for some pretty awesome motivational ploys. (next year he should tell him that melvin got 15 sacks, 2 safetys, an interception, and forced 4 fumbles returning one for a td in the clemson game.)

We're Gamecock fans, but we're not alone in being baffled by the selection of Boyd. Check out this Yahoo sports article: http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf-...62--ncaaf.html

The gist of the article is: Huh?
