Tajh is a class act. Has been a great ambassador for Clemson athletics. He will be missed greatly.

thank you for putting into words that I think all Tiger fans feel about Tajh and his family. I'm sure that Tajh's future is bright in whatever endeavor he pursues in life.

Very much how I feel and how many Clemson fans feel I'm sure. Great guy, great parents. Not a perfect QB (no one is), but a perfect person and team player (few are).

Thanks to your whole family and lots of prayers for each of you as the rest of this journey unfolds.

I don't remember what game it was that I first saw Tajh get playing time, but I knew when it was his time to lead Clemson, we would be alright. Thanks Tajh and the rest of the Boyd family.


Agree 100%

Gonna be hard to hold back the emotion when Tajh gets pulled and the crowd gives him a standing ovation.


I wont cry, my eyes might sweat, but no crying!***

Tajh Boyd actually Humbles me when he steps on any field we play on. In my very best days in playing sports. I couldn't have ever played on the same field as Tajh. Tajh will be sorely missed by Tiger Nation. I thank Tajh and the Boyd family for choosing Clemson to become a star at/for. Thank you the Boyd's. Y'all made the best choice for yourselves and the University. Good luck, but the luck begins with Tajh's hard work.

May GOD continue to Bless You and Your Young Man for Many Years to Come. THANKS FOR BEING ALL-IN, YOU'LL BE MISSED. MUCH LOVE!!!


Thank you...

Man David, that almost made me shed a tear

Great article and I didn't realize how much I'm going to miss this guy til I read this. Going to be a tough pill to swallow when we see him walk off the field Saturday. Thanks Tahj for all you have done for this university. You will be greatly missed. Now go beat SC ;)


sigh.. it's TAJH

for someone who claims not to be a coot, you sure bear some similarities..

Well done David

We, as Clemson-nation, owe a great deal to Tajh and his family. The thing that hit home with this letter is how much Tajh's class and leadership will be missed. What a great ambassador he has been for the program. He has been the leader and set the groundwork for a continued success after his departure. Thank you Tajh!!!

So proud that Tajh is our QB. He's a great player, but an even better person. He will be a success in whatever he does in life. Can't wait to see him playing on Sundays.

Go jump off the nearest bridge.

I remember the day in a Circuit City that I heard that TB was joining CU and watched these highlights from the Army all star game that he hit a 50 yd post route and boy were my expectations blown away, not only by his ability and hard work, but his leadership. It will be sad to see him go, but he, Spiller and Sammy have been integral in righting the ship. Which is CU all day long.

My wife and oldest son met Tajh and Jonathan Meeks


Posted: Nov 22, 2013 10:24 PM
 

the summer the got here. They were sitting on a bench outside Walmart.My son instantly recognized them as Clemson football players. They were extremely gracious and were humbled that my son wanted them to sign his T-shirt.(which they did) My wife says she new that day that there was something special about Tajh. She became an instant TB fan without ever seeing him play a down, or even knowing who he was for that matter. Gonna miss him and all the seniors.


Well done, David. Couldn't agree more. Gonna miss him.***

Tajh Boyd is one of the best college players to put on a uniform for any team--a true role model. Even for myself, someone whose been out of college for a while, i find it easy to look up to this man. His impact will remain for a long, long time. The university owes him a debt of gratitude. It is and will be a better place because of the work he's done.


We sure are going to miss him. 10 wins and ACC title, 11


Posted: Nov 22, 2013 11:54 PM
 

wins, and likely 10 wins with two games to go. Wins over Auburn twice, Georgia, LSU, Virginia Tech 3 times, FSU. He has been a great leader, great face of the program and great quarterback. I cant wait to pull for him in the NFL!


Great article!


Posted: Nov 23, 2013 12:53 AM
 

I know I'll be tearing up. Thanks for the memories #10! Now go finish the season with a bang! Go Tigers!

It's been a blessing to have Tajh as the QB for the majority of the time that I have been a student at Clemson (on the 4.5 year plan KP my freshman year and whoever succeeds Tajh next year). It's amazing to know that when I grow old, God willing, that I will be able to tell my grandchildren of the times that I got to see Tajh Boyd connect to Nuk Hopkins, Sammy Waktins, or run it himself for the TD.

I'm having a difficult time imagining the Tigers without Tajh next year.

Tajh, after you wrap up

what I'm sure will be a brilliant career at the next level, if a job at ESPN doesn't fulfill your competitive nature, How about come home and coach. Dabo will probably be the A.D. by then and I can't think of a better life coach to carry the torch! Thanks for the memories!


Thanks.... we'll never forget........ future "Ring of Honor***

Now please beat the coots and your story will be unblemished


Posted: Nov 23, 2013 10:51 AM
 

Whether you want to admit it or not, and your story is well written, if he doesn't beat South Carolina during his tenure that will be the only real negative anyone could remember. Hopefully he can rid himself and Clemson of this terrible streak we are up against now against our rivals.

Thanks for choosing Clemson, Tajh.


Posted: Nov 23, 2013 10:58 AM
 

You've been an inspiration - and raised the bar very high to all who follow.

You and your family have all been a class act. It's difficult to see you go, but Tiger Nation will always be a part of you, and vice versa.

Good luck the rest of the way, and thanks for the memories.

It's been a heckuva ride.

Go Tigers!

Great letter. Truly going to miss Tajh. :/

Another excellent article David, thank you Tajh and family!!!


Re: Front Page Story: Open Letter to Tajh Boyd's Family


Posted: Nov 23, 2013 1:52 PM
 

My feelings exactly. I am really going to be sad to see Tajh leave Clemson but fully understand that he has to venture on to achieving his dreams and goals. I have enjoyed watching him play and have bragged on him and the rest of the Clemson Tigers to all of my friends, most of which I am sorry to say are gamecock fans.
To Tajh's family I would like to say Thank You with all of my heart for allowing us to enjoy time and space with this wonderful man that you have raised. He is truly a leader in every sense of the word and I know that where ever this life may take him I know that he is destined for greatness. WE LOVE YOU TAJH AND WE ARE TRULY GOING TO MISS YOU.


Re: Front Page Story: Open Letter to Tajh Boyd's Family


Posted: Nov 25, 2013 8:58 AM
 

And a special THANKS to Lane Kiffin and the Tennessee Volunteers for saying Tajh was not their type of QB! Hmmm, wonder if they have missed him the past 4 years???
We look forward to seeing Tajh in Death Valley again...when his name goes up on the Ring of Honor!


Great football player, fine human being, well done Tajh!***

Could not have said it better myself. You will be missed Tajh and know you will always be a member of the Tiger family. Wish you well on your next journey. We love you.


Tajh...don't let the stain of having never beaten...
