Boyd Arrives for Orange Bowl


Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd spoke at the Miami airport after arriving for the Discover Orange Bowl.  Here is a transcript with Tajh’s comments.





On being on a “a big stage” (the Discover Orange Bowl)…

“I’m excited about this match up. Obviously, we want to play in every big game that we possibly can, so this just sets up another opportunity for us to go out there and show the country what we can do. Big stage, big venue, beautiful city, we’re excited about it. [Ohio State is a] great team we’re going to play against and we get a chance to go out there and just lay it all out on the line.”

On Braxton Miller…

“I’m excited. Me and Braxton have a great relationship. I’ve known him for a couple of years now and, obviously, he’s one of the most explosive players in the country, regardless of position. So, it’s going to be a challenge for us as a whole. We have to rally together. There will be ups and down throughout the game…I’m excited for it.”

On Ohio State…

“Their athletic group is very physical. That’s just the style of football that they play. They are very much downhill in the way that they compete and the way that their mentality is. We have to run the ball effectively, we have to be able to throw the ball effectively, so, it just comes down to executing your game plan and just focusing on the details of the game.”

Reflecting on his college career…

“It’s special [the game]. Just my time and looking at it from an accumulation standpoint, it’s just been a great career. But again, you’re only really remembered by your last game. So, when we go out here we want to make the most of it. Some people look at it as a legacy game, some people look at it in other regards, but I just want to go out there and lay it on the field. When I come out of this game there needs to be no regrets and nobody questioning my toughness and my competitiveness.”
