Found October 28, 2013 on College Spun:
Florida State pretty much squashed Clemson’s national championship aspirations when the Seminoles crushed the Tigers two weekends ago. However, Clemson still has a lot to play for, and needs to relax and remain focused in order to chase down another BCS bowl.  Offensive coordinator Chad Morris thinks that one of the ways the team can improve is to enjoy playing football a bit more — specifically, quarterback Tajh Boyd needs to set the example: Chad Morris message to Tajh Boyd lately: “My big emphasis to Tajh has been, you made the choice to come back, and you need to have fun.” — Aaron Brenner (@Aaron_Brenner) October 28, 2013 It’s easy to understand how a least some of the fun is gone now that the Tigers can’t really hope to claim a national title, but Morris is right: Tajh came back to have a great final season, and he still has that opportunity. Hopefully he can refocus and have some fun out there, because it’s fun for all of us to watch him sling it around with confidence.
