Dabo Swinney: (12:47)
OVERALL THOUGHTS: "I thank God for allowing me to be here with this great program, this
great staff, these great players, and this great fan base. So many people
deserve this win. These guys played great, and played through adversity to
clinch the ACC Atlantic Division, now let's go to Tampa."
ON THE SENIORS: "It was like a basketball game, when I subbed the guys out at the end of
the game. I had to congratulate them for their efforts not just for today,
but also for the past four years. They gave me a #40 jersey for my
birthday, and they all signed it before the game. They are really a great
group of guys. Jacoby (Ford) had a career-high in all-purpose yards today,
and Kavell (Conner) came out and made 15 tackles. All of the seniors gave
great effort today. I'm so proud of these guys."
ON KYLE PARKER: "He keeps getting better and better. He is efficient and continues to make
plays. He was 19 for 26 with 234 passing yards. He is growing as a player,
and has continued to make smarter plays."
ADJUSTMENTS IN THE SECOND HALF: "We didn't play smart in the first half. We weren't disciplined with our
eyes. And they had a lot of trick plays in the first half. Our staff made
great adjustments at halftime, and we challenged then in the second half.
This team never gave up, and they came out in the second half to win this
Kyle Parker: (5:10)
"It's an awesome feeling. The biggest thing is that this team didn't give
up. We kept working hard, and when people didn't believe, we still
believed in ourselves. It's an extremely good feeling. Our fans deserved
to see a win today. They put a lot into it. We have some great fans out
there watching us. We needed to give them the satisfaction of watching us
win the Atlantic Division."
C.J. Spiller: (6:29)
"I'm sure a lot of people still probably thought we would have a letdown. But the good thing about this team is that we never worry about what people say about our team. We just worry about what we can control. The main thing for us is to have a good week of preparation and go out and prove everyone wrong."
Brandon Maye: (1:44)
"In the second half, we just calmed down, went out, and executed the game plan. We did what Coach Steele asked of us. I think everybody did a good job of that. Being able to go to Tampa and get another shot at the option offense, it's a great feeling."
