CLEMSON - Watch head coach Tommy Bowden talk about Saturday's 49-26 win over Louisiana-Monroe.



ON THE GAME: "We had two games in one week, and we've never done that. I don't think I've ever had that as an assistant or a head coach. You're never sure what you are going to get after a big game like the one we had against Florida State on Monday. In all, I'm very pleased to have two wins in a week."

ON THE SHORT BREAK: "After coming off an emotional game we wanted to stay away from a let down. I was very pleased with the turnout of the crowd when we came out of the tunnel. I'm thankful that the crowd came out and gave us a true home field advantage."

ON CULLEN HARPER: "I'm very pleased with how he played. They loaded nine guys in the box at times, so we had the opportunity to throw it a bit. He did a good job executing and making his throws."

ON HARPER'S FIVE TDS: "That gives him a lot of confidence. Willy Korn has pushed him hard in the off-season and Cullen has really stepped up. Cullen has shown a lot of character and this is only going to help him."

ON KICK COVERAGE: "Mark Buchholz has been doing a great job putting the ball in the corner consistently. It's funny, it's a lot of the same guys on the coverage team, but I think Andre Powell has been doing a great job with the unit."

ON FRESHMAN TE BRIAN LINTHICUM: "He's been a little banged up recently, but he's shown a lot of courage. The Florida State game really gave him a lot of confidence and he's played very well."

ON WILLY KORN'S FIRST APPEARANCE: "Well, he came out throwing. We wanted to make sure we got some work in throwing the ball downfield. We want to be sure we can go downfield if we need to."
