Maybe his goal is to have a decent shot at playing time so he can develop and play in the NFL. Or maybe he just wanted to be able to play for more than 1 or 2 years, if he doesn't make it to the NFL.
We all know Pryor is the starter barring disaster and that Boyd has no real chance of unseating him for the next 2, and possibly 3, years. If Pryor turns out to not be a great pro prospect by the time his junior year is over, Boyd would be looking at 1 year of starting. Meh, I can't blame kids for wanting to play when they only have a short window to do it.
When I see people criticize a guy for transferring just because he got beat out, that seems goofy to me. I applaud Pat Devlin for transferring; these guys only have a few years and if they are forced to the bench because there is either a guy who is a little bit better or because he is a year behind him they SHOULD transfer if they are starter quality players. Just like they SHOULD take into account the depth chart.
How rewarding is it to win even a National Championship when the only time you get in the game is when you're up by 30 in the 4th quarter?
More rewarding than going 6-6.
So you're the kind of guy who would prefer to be a member of someone's entourage and never know what could have been rather than trying to make something of yourself and finding out what you are capable of? I sincerely doubt that.
No. I am the type of guy that would rather go challenge myself and try to play the highest level I had the offer at and live with consequences.
I don't care how good he is. He isn't winning a title at Clemson. Especially after they did the Bill Stewart/WV thing and hired a HC based on his players liking him and beating BC, Duke, Virginia and South Carolina. Getting hammered by FSU. And losing to an average Nebraska team. Freaking WR coach to HC. Nice choice.
Clemson and OSU are different level programs, but they aren't playing at different levels. They are both BCS schools in conferences that can't win BCS games.
Not to pile on the Big Ten, but you think he is winning a BOWL game at a Big Ten school?
