Quoteboard: Clemson 26, Georgia Tech 7

Quotes after Georgia Tech’s 26-7 loss to Clemson on Thursday at Bobby Dodd Stadium:

“To say the offense was disappointing would be an understatement.” — Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson after the Yellow Jackets totaled 124 yards, including 95 rushing.

-

“We’re going to see the same kind of athletes next week when Miami comes in there. So we’ve got to play better. We’ve got to have a little pride and throw our bodies around, get in front of some people and play better.” — Johnson

-

“They’ve done it two years in a row to us up front. They kicked our butt. We aren’t the only ones.” -- Johnson

-

“When you are playing a good team, and as athletic as they are on both sides of the ball, you can’t make mistakes and you can’t play behind the chains.” — Johnson

-

“We’ve got to get better. We can’t let this happen again.” — Tech quarterback Justin Thomas, who completed 4-of-13 passes for 29 yards and rushed 10 times for minus-25 yards.

-

“We practiced the play all week. I should have led him more down the field. That’s pretty much what happened.” — B-back Dedrick Mills on the interception he threw in the fourth quarter. Mills said his high school team ran that play.

-

“If we would have played well, who knows what would have happened? But we didn’t play well.” — Tech center Freddie Burden

-

“Not at all. I think the guys will still be confident going in. One bad game doesn’t make a season.” — Burden, on if there’s a chance the team could suffer a let down similar to what happened last season after the loss to Notre Dame. Tech proceeded to lose seven of its next eight games.

-

“This is a place we hadn’t won at very much, so mission accomplished.” — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney

-

“But again, 124 total yards, 95 yards rushing, just a dominant performance (by the defense), especially from our guys up front. That’s where it all starts.” — Swinney

-

“We came here to be 4-0, and that’s what we got done. We didn’t win the division tonight, but we got off to a good start.” — Swinney
