Cole Stoudt has the unenviable task of replacing the greatest quarterback in school history. Tajh Boyd was not just the best QB in Clemson history, he was also one of the ACC's all-time greats.
In Boyd's four-year career—the last three seasons as the starter—he passed for 11,904 yards, 107 touchdowns and completed 64 percent of his passes. Boyd also rushed for 26 more touchdowns.
But football is about more than stats—the only numbers that ultimately matter are wins and losses. However, with offensive coordinator Chad Morris calling plays, Clemson's offense is one of the more quarterback-friendly units in the country. If Stoudt starts every game, he will put up big numbers.
The biggest question surrounding Stoudt is if he can hold off true freshman Deshaun Watson all season.
What's the over/under on Stoudt's numbers in the major passing categories? Here's a fun look, using Boyd's numbers from 2013 as the measuring stick, at how Stoudt projects this fall.
