Quotes: Duke vs. Wake Forest

Head Coach Ted Roof, FB Tielor Robinson, and DT Vince Oghobaase met the media following the loss.

Duke Head Coach Ted Roof

On being in a tough position at the end of the game: "I thought that we didn't throw the ball to start out. The red zone didn't finish their drives. The first half I thought we left some points out on the field. We have to make our field goals. We had some turnovers and we had missed field goals. When you don't make those, you don't win football games. That's what happened to us and we didn't win the football game."

On Duke's play and Kicker Joe Surgan's blocked kick: "We did some good things and we did some bad things. We have to work on those bad things that we did and learn from them. It's tough being the kicker out there- it's like you're on an island. You're not like a defense lineman, you're by yourself."

On Wake Forest: "Wake Forest made some great plays. Sometimes you have to give your opposition credit."

Duke FB Tielor Robinson

On the game: "Well, we played a really good game and we seemed to make a little more plays. We played a heck of a game and they played a heck of a game, that's good Saturday football for us."

"The coaches did a great job operating the team's offense. Jomar Wright did a good job down in the red zone but I wish that we could have capitalized."

"It feels good to be out there and it feels good to come back on Monday and go back to work."

Duke NG Vince Oghobaase

On the blocked kick: "Looks like they got a little penetration but it happened so quick that I never knew."
