He’s a Bad, Bad, Man

Tajh Boyd and Clemson made a statement last night

That statement was very clear….. “We. Are. Here.”

I was blown away last night watching Tajh Boyd put together his gem of a game against the Georgia Bulldogs.  Death Valley was alive and rocking for all four quarters, it was the perfect night-cap to an incredible first Saturday of College Football.

Boyd was surgeon-like. Even though it’s only Week One on the schedule, he looked 100% NFL ready.  I liked that he was stepping up into the pocket, delivering tough passes on the run, knowing when to throw it away, etc.  Most importantly, in a game where both teams were answering each score and exchanging blows, he stayed calm and composed.  No antics after the play, no over-zealous celebrating after first downs.  It was all business, and he commanded his troops against a very tough #5 Bulldogs defense.

I’m excited for this team’s chances to make a National Championship run, and more excited for Boyd to make a run at the Heisman.  I may or may not look up the rest of the home games at Death Valley this season, because after last night that looked like an insane place to watch a big game.
