CLEMSON - Offensive coordinator Chad Morris shares his thoughts after Clemson's 27-17 loss to South…
Swinney postgame quotes
"We couldn't get the ball in the third period. We just couldn't stop them on third down. The third quarter was huge. We had too many penalties, too many turnovers and South Carolina did a great job of controlling the ball."
"We got off to a good start scoring two touchdowns in the first quarter but they just started to control the ball after that. Give them credit, they did a great job. Their ability to put pressure on Tajh (Boyd) was key. Give credit to South Carolina"
"They disrupted our rhythm. We only got two plays in the third quarter and their 86 plays to our 59 was huge. You have to give them a lot of credit. Tonight was very disappointing. We played with great effort but that third quarter drive was critical."
"The fun is in the winning and we just didn't do what we needed to do tonight. We dropped a lot of passes and interceptions and their third down conversions killed us. We just couldn't get in an offensive rhythm."
"I just want to apologize to our fan base, to our seniors, to everyone. I really appreciate the environment that these fans have created these past few seasons. This loss really hurts."
On South Carolina quarterback Dylan Thompson:
"We couldn't disrupt him. He threw the ball incredibly well. He was the difference in the game. We just couldn't turn the momentum. Overall, you have to give them credit. They made just enough plays and ran the ball just enough to keep us off balance."
On the end of the game:
"Penalties, the third and 19 play, it was just poor on our part. Their time of possession was unbelievable. We could never get in rhythm and it was just a bad team effort."
On Xavier Brewer:
"Brewer dropped a couple of interceptions, but he kept playing. After that interception in the end zone, we felt like we could reclaim the lead, but they made some big plays to keep us off balance and we just couldn't turn the table."
