Clemson fans are funny -- while they seem to expect a National Championship every year they also harbor very realistic expectations of an eventual meltdown  losing to a team with far-inferior talent.

Or, in recent years, “live by the big play, die by the big play.”

That said, the 2013 season may well be different as a key component of Clemson’s explosive offense remains in place as junior quarter back Tajh Boyd has announced he will remain in school foregoing the NFL for now.

"As explosive as we've been, there's more to attain. There's more out there for us," said the reigning ACC Player Of The Year.

Boyd has led the Tigers to a 21-6 record the past two seasons. He broke his own school records this past season with 3,896 passing yards and 36 touchdowns. He was also second on the team in rushing with 514 yards and led Clemson with 10 touchdowns on the ground.

Clemson defeated LSU 25-24 in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve to finish at 11-2, its best mark since the program's 12-0, national championship season in 1981.

While Boyd holds 39 Clemson records, he acknowledges that their is room to improve saying he needs to improve his footwork and decision-making to make himself into a first-round NFL player. He believes that one more year at Clemson is the best way to make that happen.
