was not getting more national recognition.

“I don’t know what is wrong with all of y’all [media]. I don’t know of a quarterback playing better in the country than Tajh Boyd. I know I am biased. I know I haven’t studied every player, but I know who they are. I can’t imagine a guy that has meant more to his team than Tajh Boyd. This guy has 33 touchdown passes. He has 41 touchdowns [8 rushing]. It’s incredible how he has played. Incredible the leadership he has displayed. We are a 10-1 football team. I see some of the guys they talk about and I am like ‘Wow.’ I wouldn’t trade my guy for any of them. You can tell me I can have any of them. I am keeping the one I got. Maybe they will figure it out one of these days. This guy is a special player. He is a winner. He is a winner. That’s just the bottom line. He was a winner in high school. He’s a winner here. He has fun. He is fun to be around every day. He always has a smile on his face. He makes big plays. He has made some throws that we have just become used to around here. Oh no big deal - 20 yard stop route to the field on a rope. No problem. Just like it is easy. He makes it look easy. He’s a special player. He really is. I’m really proud of him. But he will get his time. Sooner or later people will start paying attention.”
