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.
