Will he go or will he stay? Boyd weighs his decision

In an exclusive interview with TigerNet, Tajh Boyd's father Tim Boyd talks about his son's decision. What is the deadline for making a decision, and what does he think his son should do? And what has head coach Dabo Swinney told Boyd about his potential legacy? Full Story »

Hmm! Heisman or bank acct. Heisman or bank acct. I am glad it is his decision and not mine. I am to greedy!!


Boyd stays, we can make a title run. Nuk & Boyd, we will

Make a title run.

Nuk is gone. Sucks, but he's a goner.


Is next year's QB class really going to be much better?


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 12:50 PM
 

He could get a lot more hype coming back for one more season, and probably enter an equally weak QB draft next year.


Yes, and b/c Barkley, Glennon, and Smith will take 3 teams

Out of the QB market.


This QB class isn't exactly loaded, but I think if Tajh....


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 7:19 PM
 

comes back and has another big year, he could very well be the #1 QB taken. Even though this QB class isn't loaded, they seem to be sold on Geno, Barkley, Wilson, and another QB or 2 (Bray, etc) locked up as the top 4 or so QBs.

Obviously we all want to see Tajh come back. At the same time though we want Tajh to do what's best for Tajh. Honestly right now I think the best thing for him is to come back and be the #1 QB taken in the 1st round next year. I think that's very possible.

I'm not a family member or a coach, but that's just how I see it.

As far as Nuk, I think it might be the best thing for him to go ahead and jump into the draft .... BUT I really, really REALLY hope Nuk decides to come back.


If Tajh and Nuk both decide to leave, then I will still be..


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 7:22 PM
 

so proud & happy for both of them for what they've both done for Clemson. I wouldn't blame either one for leaving and moving onto the $$$ and NFL.

If they both come back though, next season could be 1981 all over again.


Keep in his ear Mr. Boyd. We want Tajh to stick around for


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 12:50 PM
 

another season!


Re: Front Page Story: Will he go or will he stay? Boyd weighs his decsision

Really sounds like Tajh has the kind of parent all football players should have. He is helping guide his son toward making a good decision, weighing the good and bad of both options, but knowing it is ultimately his son's choice. Too bad RN does not have the same kind of guidance in his life.


Re: Front Page Story: Will he go or will he stay? Boyd weighs his decsision


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 1:20 PM
 

That is exactly what I am thinking.

From that interview, one can see why Tajh is the type of guy he is. Man, I hope he stays, but if he goes, I'll have two co-favorites in the NFL... Bills and Tajh's team. 'Course, Mr. Harvard ain't exactly getting it done up there... hmm...


Yep. That was obvious when his folks picked up and moved

to Seneca. A most excellent family.




The definition of awesome!

Really good post, tigerfan28173. Tajh is fortunate that he has the parents that he has, grounded, involved, and wanting what is best for their son. I feel comfortable that they, along with Tajh, will make the right decision. The drama around Nkimdiche is incredible. A mother, who is a politician in Kenya, LET ME REPEAT, A POLITICIAN IN KENYA, apparently values her career more than being a parent. A father, who is a physician that evidently has the same type feelings as his wife, does not live with his son, Robert. Robert plays ball in Loganville, Ga. where he lives with an assistant coach, who is Robert's legal guardian. Tell me that any of you would give up the legal authority over your son to someone else, regardless of the quality of that person! To add to the drama, the HC at Loganville is the former college roommate of Dabo Swinney. No wonder Robert is having trouble deciding what to do about a college choice. Perhaps he is reaching out to the "only family person" that seems to really care about him and with whom he could spend a couple of years playing football. I hope he comes to Clemson because we are a team that is definitely on the rise. Playing for a mid level SEC team is not in his best interest, IMHO. I hope he makes the right decision for him.

hinds1962, I thought Nkimdiche's mother was working with the Nigerian gov't.

Good assessment! TU!

Get over RN. He is 18. 18. And his brother plays at ole miss. What would you say if he was your son. ??


Re: Front Page Story: Will he go or will he stay? Boyd weighs his decsision

RN better go with O Missy and lock a job down for his daddy.


Re: Front Page Story: Will he go or will he stay? Boyd weighs his decsision

Absolutely right on!


Re: Front Page Story: Will he go or will he stay? Boyd weighs his decsision

+1, couldn't agree more

He is a product of good parenting and coaching


I hope he comes back, but would understand if he doesn't;

I'll wish him well either way.

You'll be a first rounder next year for sure.

bench warmer, then it seems like the primary focus shouldn't be on how weak the current crop of college QB's is; are there a lot of NFL teams looking for franchise QB's this season? The Jets maybe? Some other crap team?

Be smart, Boyd. Learn from C.J. Spiller. Prove your worth one more season and then cash in. You'll make $millions more by staying at Clemson.


I think that is what his dad meant - is it worth going in


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 1:11 PM
 

weak class when he might end up on the bench? The NFL team would just be getting a great/cheap deal on an excellent QB.

I agree. I have read that his projection this year is around the 3rd to 6th round. That is not good enough for a person that is as competitive as Tajh appears to be.


Re: If his main concern is not being a...


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 7:25 PM
 

I agree with that 100%. Not because I want Tajh back for selfish reasons, but because that makes perfect sense.


Man I wish Nkemdiche had a parent half as good as Mr Boyd***

Well, at age 74, I agree with your assessment!! Why give up your Senior year of college sports for a mid level possible draft position? The only answer I can come up with is that you would probably go to a team that is established and be the 1st or 2nd backup QB in their system. The money he could make will not be anywhere near what he could earn if he has more experience. The other option is stay for another year at Clemson and if you are confident of what Clemson is about to accomplish (and we will), then we will be a Top 10 and possibly a Top 5 team playing in a BCS game and possibly for the big one. Life is a gamble, but the risk are significantly reduced if you have the credentials based on performance which could come with another year at Clemson. Whatever Tajh decides, I thank him for his commitment and performance at Clemson.


He'd have a hard time getting hot chicks as an NFL QB

oh wait, maybe not.

He's already the BMOC, lol. I see what you're saying though


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 7:23 PM
 

and I pretty much agree.


I think he stays, although...


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 1:48 PM
 

He will have to go up against Johnny Football and Carr. If he can put up similar numbers next season, which is highly likely, he will be a sure-fire 1st round pick in 2014. Morris needs to run him less, though, if he wants to make it through the whole season next year.


Re: Front Page Story: Will he go or will he stay? Boyd weighs his decsision


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 1:53 PM
 

Its nice to see a parent talk about what is best for his son and not just wanting him to hurry up and get rich. Sounds like a very smart man!


Re: I think he stays, although...


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 2:19 PM
 

Johnny Football a redshirt? If not he can't come out next year.


Yes, Johnny Football is a RS Freshman


Posted: Jan 6, 2013 9:23 AM
 

He'll be 3 years out of high school next year which makes him eligible, but I just get the impression that kid is one who sticks around for at least his junior year - maybe senior as well.


Re: Yes, Johnny Football is a RS Freshman


Posted: Jan 6, 2013 10:16 AM
 

I agree. He needs to prove to NFL scouts that he can be a successful pocket passer. If he plays like he does now in the NFL, he will get wrecked.


Re: I think he stays, although...


Posted: Jan 6, 2013 10:15 AM
 

After next season, when Johnny completes his redshirt sophomore season, he will be 3 years removed from high school graduation, making him eligible to enter the NFL draft in 2014.


A Jersey Mike sub for Tajh and Tim if he stays at CU!


Posted: Jan 5, 2013 2:19 PM
 

C'mon guys you know you love their subs-let's continue that LSU success and go for a national championship next year. Either way though you represent Clemson well and you will have success either way you go. We appreciate your leadership and work!!!!!!!!! You the man!!!!!!


One of the best pieces I have ever read on T-net

Has some past players that left early without being a guaranteed first rounder call and talk with Boyd. One that comes to mind is Derrick Hamilton. Hamilton was a smart and very talented kid. Projected as a mid 2nd rounder as a junior. Was drafted early 3rd round if I remember correctly. Then everyone was saying if he stayed he would be a easy first rounder in the next draft. Pressure from family and the $$ in his face proved too much and he left. He also proved to not be ready for nfl, and after several years of bouncing from team to team even Canadian league he is done. Great guy, with great talent, but just couldn't catch up. I hate to see guys do this for a few bucks now rather than a lot of bucks in a just a year, and a legacy. From what I heard Hamilton regrets leaving early. Hopefully he reads this and might give Boyd a call.


Will a NFL team look past physical measurables in the first

round? I keep thinking about how they couldn't for Brees. I think these guys are steals in the second round. Brees has proven he was.


Re: Will a NFL team look past physical measurables in the first

TB seems to be from the kind of family that is not one that "needs the money now", of which we so often hear about from the juniors who declare early. Because of that and the possibility of setting some records, etc., staying for his senior seems likely.

However, when you've been as productive as he has the last two seasons, can you prove yourself more to scouts? This years qb class is weak and Taj isn't getting any taller - those things make you think leaving early is the right thing to do. IDK.

Tajh, here's one reason to stay


Posted: Jan 6, 2013 8:53 AM
 

An excerpt from "The State" newspaper.

"We hit eight of 10 goals," coach Steve Spurrier said about the season. "Beat Clemson is one of our goals every year, and try to win a bowl game and finish in the top 10. We did not win the division, did not win the SEC. Last year's team did almost the exact same thing. It can be better; it can still be better."

But, if you leave, God's speed and the best of good fortune to you! Thank you, you are a true warrior!


That rag doesn't count as a "newspaper"***
