Grobe talks about his team's loss

Miami defeated Wake Forest on Saturday afternoon by the score of 16-10. Read on to see what Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe was saying after the game.

Wake Forest Head Coach Jim Grobe:

On missing PK Sam Swank
"Well it hurts, we got a young guy, he'll grow up as the season goes and his career goes on. When you don't have Sam out there it hurts. It limits your opportunity."

On missed field goal near the end of the game...
"I thought he hit it pretty good, he went through it fine, it just didn't go through the uprights."

On running the ball much of the game...
"We just didn't play well last week against Maryland, too much spread stuff. We wanted to come into today and run the football a little bit. We probably didn't get as much as we hoped to get out of our throwing game. We just felt like we needed to run the football a little bit today."

On decision to punt late in the fourth quarter…
"We were down six, I felt if we kicked the field goal, fourth and four, was a little bit of a gamble. Our defense was playing really good, I thought there was enough time to stop them and get the football back and then have a chance to score a touchdown, or tie the game and play a little more than four quarters."

On Marve running as much as he did…
"They have been a gun team and have thrown the football quite a bit. I think we got pretty much what we were expecting."

On not changing to spread after being down…
"For the longest time, I thought we had plenty of time, I really did. I felt we had time, especially on that last series. We went down the field, we were doing pretty good. We were really feeling like we were in four-down territory. On third and short, we lost yardage, and that put us at fourth and four. In hindsight you might go back and do a lot of things differently."
