Boyd brushes aside Clowney's shot

Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd took the high road in response to USC defensive end Jadeveon Clowney calling him 'scared.'

CLEMSON, S.C. (WACH)- After shots were fired from USC defensive end Jadeveon Clowney calling Tajh Boyd 'scared', the Clemson quarterback deciding to take the high road in response on Wednesday.

"I'll tell you man, honestly, there's some things I would definitely like to say, but I'm just not going to entertain it," Boyd told USA Today Sports.

Those comments coming after Clowney spoke strong words about the signal caller at SEC Media Days Tuesday, saying Boyd is 'scared every time we play them.'

The All-American did get the best of Boyd and the Tigers in 2012, sacking him 4.5 times in USC's fourth-straight win over the Tigers.

Boyd's head coach stood tall for him through it all.

"I don't think Tajh is scared of anybody," Dabo Swinney said. "He [Clowney] is a great player, there's no doubt about that. I look forward to getting another shot at him."

Keep in mind it is the middle of July. The Gamecocks and Tigers do not matchup until November 30 in Columbia.
