Tajh Boyd Breaks ACC Touchdown Mark

Clemson University quarterback Tajh Boyd – who has already rewritten his school’s record book – set a conference mark for career touchdown passes during the eighth-ranked Tigers’ 55-31 decimation of Georgia Tech on Thursday night.

Boyd’s 76-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Martavis Bryant in the second quarter was the 96th of his career – breaking the previous career mark set by former N.C. State star Philip Rivers from 2000-03. Boyd extended the record later in the game with a 44-yard strike to wide receiver Sammy Watkins – who crossed the 1,000-yard mark in receiving for the second time in three seasons.

It was a big night all-around for the Tigers (9-1, 7-1 ACC) – who are locked out of the ACC championship game but still in line for a possible at-large Bowl Championship Series’ bid.

Boyd gave the crowd of 75,000 at Death Valley a scare when he left the game at the end of the third quarter with a shoulder injury.

Fortunately for Tigers fans, Boyd was diagnosed with a bruised sternum and collarbone – and is unlikely to miss any time.

“If it was a dire situation I felt like I needed to play, I felt like I could’ve,” Boyd said. “But we were in a situation where it wasn’t needed.”

This website had its share of fun at Boyd’s expense in the past, but over the last two seasons he has clearly emerged as one of the nation’s elite college passers – not to mention a legitimate NFL prospect (possibly even a first round pick).

Props to Boyd on his milestone …  and an amazing career at Clemson.

Clemson still has too much inconsistency, on offense and defense, for the level of talent that they have.
Having said that, Boyd threw some absolutely perfect deep strikes–the kind that Jessie Palmer can only dream about. Stoudt and Kelly looked pretty good, also.

Jesse Palmer loves to talk over everyone and give Clemson shit.

It’s like watching the news. They don’t tell you the news; they just tell you what THEY think about the news.

Palmer’s hair looks douchebaggy.

My boys knew how to handle the Jesse Palmers of the college football world. They didn’t talk smack, they smashed mouth. That works more better.

Too bad the record he broke was set back in the days when the ACC wasn’t a joke in football.

Yeah, it’s almost as bad as that CU/USuK all-time record that no one wants to count anymore. Have you forgotten that records prior to Spurcock don’t count?

Poof! The all-time series record is now 0-4 according to most dirtpeckers.

I know right. It’s almost like most people don’t care what happened in the 1933 football season anymore. Kids these days.

…CU/USuK…

Shouldn’t that be “CU/USuCk”?

Other than that, spot on!

Carry on, sir.

It has been brought to my attention that several implements have not been cleaned properly after you have used them. If you wish to use our plows on your patch, this must stop. Daddy is not going to let you live on our land if you don’t respect his property. On a more pleasant note, your two oldest daughters are invited over for a little cookout I’m throwing for a few of my fraternity brothers from Carolina this Friday. We are thinking of forgiving that 2500 dollars you owe us for that bean crop that failed to make last year. If you know what I mean!

“Now I’ve told you to keep your younguns off the porch when you are plowing late. We have a dance to attend this weekend in Columbia before the Carolina game, so be damned sure you close all the gates and feed the stock before you turn on the Clemson game. By the way, I left you two brand new “D” batteries. And wash Miss Ellen’s car before we get back. See you Monday.”

When are you all going to realize that CU could care less about what Fits and SC jr. think. We just keep moving on and dragging this state along kicking and screaming because SC refuses to realize and invest in the gem that is CU.

There are many terms a person could use to describe Clemson. “Gem” is not one of them.

Many times you post a bunch of Bullshit on this site, then when you get called out it you, answer with “I don’t care about USC”, or “I didn’t go to Clemson”, yet here you used the words “We” proving you did. Thank you for proving me correct all this time by calling you out on many different occasions in the past for being a pretentious, arrogant, self-righteous, smug, love the smell of your own farts, asshole!!!!! Cheers to you, and the horse that rode you.
