We have finally reached the 100-mark milestone until college football returns. And for Clemson, that means 100 more days until it hosts head coach Mark Richt and the Georgia Bulldogs in Death Valley. With the Tigers returning much of their talent that made them a 10-2 team in 2012 and won them the Chick-fil-A bowl against LSU, many have pegged them as a legitimate BCS National Championship contender, and the Tigers are aiming to do just that in 2013.
Of course, much of the attention will go toward the Tigers' two All-Americans in senior quarterback Tajh Boyd and junior receiver Sammy Watkins, who had a rougher sophomore year due to an early suspension and nagging injuries afterward. But a strong spring showing by the Fort Myers native eased much of the Clemson fanbase that he will return to his 2011 form, when he was arguably the best freshman player in college football.
But besides these two dynamic players, which Tigers could be poised for a breakout season in 2013?
