Inside Tajh Boyd’s Decision: Why the Clemson QB Is Coming Back for His Senior Year (Post and Courier)

For the past week, Tajh Boyd deliberated over a decision: to stay for his senior year at Clemson or turn pro. The closing argument in favor of turning pro went like this: Boyd’s NFL draft grade ranged from the late second to the early fourth round.

I love Ray Lewis. I love his dancing, his vicious hits, and like all of you; I love pictures of him in orange and green with bare midriff. Who doesn’t love football midriff? I caught myself rooting for James Wilder, Jr. a little this year just because he’s managed to circumvent NCAA uniform rules with the midriff-undertuck.
