Quotes following Georgia Tech’s 27-13 loss to Clemson on Saturday, courtesy of Clemson’s sports information department:
Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson
On his team’s mistakes:
“I was frustrated because we’d move the ball, but then we’d kill ourselves. We would pitch it on the ground or turn somebody loose. It was just kind of a myriad of things. It wasn’t one guy or one situation. It was just one of those things. We didn’t play well enough to win, and they did.”
On Clemson’s toughness:
“They’re a physical football team. Those defensive linemen are going to play in the NFL. They whacked us around. You’ve got seniors whacking around freshmen and sophomores. That’s what happened.”
On the special teams plays:
“(The fake punt) was something we worked on and felt like was there. It gave us a little jolt, but we didn’t get anything out of it. We thought we had a chance to block a punt. I think when we look at the tape, we’ll see that we did.
