Found October 23, 2013 on Bush League Chronicle:
It was a rough weekend for Clemson Tigers quarterback Tajh Boyd. Not only did his team get waxed at home by a conference rival, but a report surfaced citing sources that claim Boyd had gotten himself into an $80,000 gambling debt, primarily from betting on NFL games. On Tuesday, Boyd shot down the rumors, saying his cable provider only allowed him access to two games each Sunday. "I have no idea where that came from," Boyd said. "It was kind of shocking to me as well. That on top of the loss (to Florida State) made for a rough little weekend. "I rarely watch NFL games," Boyd said. While claiming lack of access is not exactly the best excuse, because you don't have to watch the game to gamble, Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney believes that the report is completely false, too. "He just shook his head and said, 'No way, coach,'" Swinney said. "I have no reason not to believe Tajh Boyd. He's never lied to me before. His character and integrity from my view are impeccable, so I'm going to take his word over some website that I've never heard of, ever." The university is said to be investigating the report.
