Tajh Boyd's hip injury? Blame 'swag reasons'

Here's what people are talking about this morning as the Tigers zero in on the Terps:

• Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd is catching a lot of grief for admitting that he wasn't wearing hip pads for "swag reasons" when he went down with a hip injury against Boston College. (How long until #swagreasons is trending on Twitter?) I'm going to go out on a limb and say he'll be wearing them Saturday against Maryland, and the "swag" factor won't have anything to do with it.

The Charleston Post and Courier examines the trend of flashy, gaudy, ever-changing college football uniforms. Maryland figures prominently, of course.

• Here's video of Tony Barnhart interviewing Dabo Swinney for CBS Sports.

Orange and White discusses Clemson's youth movement -- 29 freshmen have played for the Tigers so far this season.

O&W also has a couple of pieces on receiver Sammy Watkins, who is tearing it up this year.

• Who will start at quarterback for Maryland on Saturday?
