Clemson's Boyd Not Scared Of Clowney


By Sara Jane Harris

GREENSBORO, N.C. (WOLO) -- Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd knew the questions were coming when he started making the rounds Sunday at ACC Media Days.

Boyd was asked multiple times to respond to Jadeveon Clowney.

"There's been a lot of talk that goes on, on and off the field. But that will take care of itself in November," said Boyd.

Last week at SEC Media Days, the Gamecock star defensive end said he could tell Boyd was scared of him.

"I can tell Tajh Boyd is scared back there. He ain't no sitting duck, but you can see in his eyes that he's scared of our D-linemen. We know that coming into the game that we have him shook already. We get a couple hits on him and it changes the whole game. He's scared every time we play them. I know he's probably listening to this right now, but I'm just telling the truth, man. You can look at a guy and tell that he's scared. If he's staring at me before the ball is snapped and he's staring at me every play before the ball is snapped, oh we got him. I tell the players that he's shook," Clowney said.

When asked about Clowney's comments, Boyd said, "He's good player, obviously one of the best in the country. I respect the way he plays, but I’m not afraid of him. It’s never been in my nature.”
