As much as I want T Boyd and Bryce Brown, I don't think we get either of them. Brown said he loved Clemson, but has said many times that he refuses to go anywhere we he might have to play vs his brother. I don't know why he bothered making the visit in the 1st place. As far as Boyd goes, I think we got on him too late. From everything I've read/heard and from people in the know, it sounds like Oregon might win out for Tajh and even Bryce Brown said in 2 different interviews this week that Oregon is his favorite right now. After watching the holiday Bowl last week, and Oregon get as high as num 2 last year before losing Dennis Dixon...I can see why kids would want to go there. Especially RB's. They have a lethal ground attack and kids seem to take to those state of the art unis. I hope we get both or even one of them, but it is starting to sound like they are looking West.
Boyd had scheduled us for this weekend and that gave us a great shot. But unless he makes the trip between now and Feb. 4th, he's going to Ohio State or Oregon. Too bad, he has the best shot at early playing time with Clemson.

TCU has a hell of a defense...it won't be an easy win.
Jon Richt transferring, Swinney refuses to rank units
Good for Richt. He's got some talent, but probably wouldn't have ever seen the field for Clemson. He deserves a chance to play. I also like what Swinney is doing. We do this same sort of thing for our high school football, not naming units 1, 2, 3, etc.
Kyle Parker is a Beast, what a Spring game, he and Boyd are going to wind up vying for the starting spot.
Oh, now don't make fun of Korn. He's going to be the starter this year, Boyd won't be because of recovering from the knee/not getting to school until the fall.
You obviously never played football, there's still plenty of spring practice to go, then they'll have to practice early in the fall as well. Its far from decided, but if I had to put money on it, Korn will be the starter in our first game. They'll both play, though.
