Tajh Boyd didn't come back to Clemson to win the Heisman.
He didn't come back to enhance his NFL draft status.
He came back to Clemson to win, and win big.
Whether that ends up being a championship, ACC or national, who knows? But Boyd's motives are clear, and his goals well-focused.
Swinney says that's as it should be, both for the Tigers and for Boyd's own future.
"I think if you look at the draft, team success is critical," said Swinney. "When you start putting individual performance over team success and performance, it's usually not a good recipe.
"Tajh didn't come back for himself. He came back because he wants to win a national championship. He loves playing at Clemson. He's not going out on that field against Georgia thinking about the NFL draft. He's going out on the field thinking 'how do I win this game?'"
Swinney pointed out that Boyd has a chance to leave Clemson with the most important record that any quarterback can claim.
"I think the true measure of a quarterback is 'does he win?' Does he find a way to win?" Swinney said. "That's what Tajh has done as well as anybody we've ever had here. He has a chance to leave here as the winningest quarterback in the history of the school.
"He needs 12 wins to get that done. I'm all for that."
