Clemson’s offense could be one of the most potent again for the 2012 season with the announcement that leading rusher Andre Ellington will be returning for his senior year, according to the school.

Ellington reportedly told his teammates Tuesday evening of his intentions.

The junior from South Carolina had 1,178 yards and 11 touchdowns this season, and was fourth in the ACC with 90.6 yards per game. Ellington had 116 yards and a touchdown on just 10 carries in a 70-33 loss to West Virginia in the Orange Bowl.

That means Clemson will have their leading rusher, top two leading receivers (Sammy Watkins and DeAndre Hopkins) and quarterback (Tajh Boyd) for the 2012 season.

    This is unrelated, but I want to toot my own horn.

    Remember last night I guaranteed you the media would use Bama winning to justify them being in the title over Oklahoma State?

    And I’m sure plenty of others have done it, I just haven’t bothered to pick up the paper.

    My favorite quote from the article –

    “The BCS system, in fact, is the insurance policy that would protect the Cowboys from wind, hail and hospitalization. And humiliation.”

    Ah, the beautiful crystal ball. Its eye into the hypothetical knows no bounds.

    See, I have another idea – how about we let the teams answer those questions themselves with uh…wait for it….playoff system.

    Radical ideas here, folks. Radical.
