“It’s really important to get pressure on him, keep him guessing.”

“Obviously we want to pressure every pass attempt.”

“Jamie Newman?  He’s a good player.”

“At that point, it’s put it behind us and the next half you can’t dwell on stuff.”

“Back to the lab. We’ll come in Sunday and scheme up Clemson.”

“No, that’s what drives me. You choose to be out here. We’re not forced.”

“We’re banged up, but you can’t make excuses. We can’t give up 44 points. We have to play better defense.”

“I think it comes down to us executing... they did a good job of front, give them props for that, but we have to do a better job.”

“We don’t need a pep rally. We know what the season is. We know what we have to get done.”

“It sucks. I think Wake Forest has had our number a couple of years in a row. They played spoiler a lot for us, and we wanted to play spoiler for them this week, but Wake Forest is a solid football team.  Credit to them, but obviously it sucks to lose.”
