Tajh Boyd had an impressive performance in the first scrimmage of 2011 going 10-12 and completing his last eight passes. The Tiger’s quarterback met with the media following the scrimmage.
“We had a lot of mental errors the first part of practice. I thought we made some corrections and came out and played better in the second half,” said Boyd.
How does Tajh feel after the first week of practice?
“The best thing I can say is that there has been improvement every day. The freshmen are going to play a vital role in this offense and they are coming along. At the same time this was the first time for them in the scrimmage environment. We had a few errors here and there but that came with the veterans also so we have to get together as a unit and make sure we are one,” replied Boyd.
Tajh knew it would be a work in progress.
“Definitely, we are still doing installs every day in practice. It is not completely confirmed and established but at the same time it is coming along pretty smooth. We have a lot of guys like Dwayne and the older linemen helping guys out there on the field. I got a chance to help Mike out when he came out there with me so that makes you feel pretty good when you can help out some of the younger guys. Like I said you see the big potential from these guys. It is just a little thing here or there that we have to correct, but it is coming along,” said Boyd.
How much more comfortable is Tajh running the offense than he was this spring?
“It is like a 360. Honestly even in the spring I kind of knew what was going on but I didn’t have everything down. Like I said a lot of this stuff came to me over the summer durign the workouts and the film time,” said Boyd.
Who are some of the young receivers that looked good out there today?
“Well Sammy, I don’t know if they caught many balls but at the same time it is the other stuff like the blocking. We have seen what they can do in the practice environment. Now it is just time to transition to another type of situation whether it is a game or a scrimmage and like I said that comes with time a little bit. Adam Humphries made a great catch out there. He is going to be a special player.
