The decision to go pro is one that these kids have to take seriously. Coming back to play "one more year" may seem right from a fan's perspective, but we're talking serious money here. As a fan, you should want the right thing for the player.

I think he would benefit from an outstanding combine and pro-day workout rather than another year of putting up flashy numbers against bad teams.

For what it is worth though, I think he stays. Dabo will get on his knees and convince TB to stay.
I guess if bombing the ball on almost every play makes you good, then I guess he is good lol

He had a great year overall and his stock won't go any higher by staying another year in a weak conference. Not to mention it's going to be one of the weakest QB classes in some time.
Dabo is one of the most selfish coaches you will ever hear about. How could he recommend something like that to a player? It is not at all in Taj's interest to stay at Clemp and let Dabo run him into Defenses 20 times per game.

He should definitely go pro. How is he going to do better next year now that Hopkins is leaving?

That is true. I heard the announcers for the Clemp game saying that in the first half.

Default Re: TAjh Boyd about 50/50 staying at CU

After the beating Boyd took in the last two games you would think that he might feel like he should be getting paid a little more. Of course, there aren't many times in the acc that he gets hit like that, and maybe the taters can up the ante a little.
I think as long as Johnny Heisman is still in college no one else is a legitimate Heisman contender, espeically a QB. Boyd reminds me a lot of Jordon Jefferson. Lots of physical talent, but we have to see how he uses it. If he's in school to get an education, then he should stay til he graduates. If he's there to get into the NFL, then now's the tie.
Is this in the smack thread yet? LOL

They are wary of giving 2 Heismans to one guy, they work on unwritten rules for some reason. I guess they want Griffin to be the only one. Which is also why I personally doubt a purely defensive player will ever win the Heisman.

Default Re: TAjh Boyd about 50/50 staying at CU

I was hoping he would go this year. It would help us with the odds of another win against Clemson. However, we still keep winning against the odds on most of our games and I think we can still win again next year with or without Boyd on the tiger team.

Have said it before, but think he'd be a really good fit in Chip Kelly's offense, wherever he ends up in the NFL.

I agree. It's a weak QB draft this year. He would be going out with a good showing in his last game.

Let him be.

He is a willingly ignorant fool who has no idea what he is talking about.

If he would have watch the Carolina-Clemson game then he would have never have made such a stupid statement.

Default Re: TAjh Boyd about 50/50 staying at CU

I don't see Boyd leaving, especially since both Dabo and Chad Morris have been vocal about how he should stay. Heck, I'd even be surprised if Hopkins left. Seems like Clemson never has early defections to the NFL -- I'm probably overlooking someone, but I can't remember the last time one of their players bolted. I guess there's something to be said for that, but it also comes off as a bit selfish on the part of their coaching staff.

Because it affects recruiting. When Dabo obviously lies to his players so he can make a big name for himself, it shows potential recruits why you cannot believe his recruiting pitches either.

Because its the freakin off season and there is nothing else to talk about. If you dont like it, dont open the thread.

Some of you people are ignorant to think that he doesnt have what it takes to beat South Carolina, He's talented and this offense this year could have put up 50 on South Carolina, luckily our defense did its job.

As far as unfinished business and national championship crap, I still dont think Clemson has teh defense to win a national championship. Even if they make it there, a team like Alabama would destroy them.
