Coaches Review The Battle....
Maryland Head Coach Mark Duffner
"We did not play well at the line of scrimmage. We were unable to control the football. We did not perform up to the level of our expectations for our team. It is very disappointing."
"I was disappointed that we weren't able to stop their play in the fourth quarter."
"Our execution was not at the level we had to have against this team."
Clemson Head Coach Tommy West
"This week we challenged the defense as well as the offensive line and they gave their answer today. I thought it looked like they were on a mission and they went out and made the best of what was offered to them."
"The orange pants -- the seniors wanted to wear them before today, but I didn't think that they had earned the right to wear them because the orange pants are special and we just don't put them on for the heck of it."
"Our coaches had the team ready to play. They had a good game plan. But regardless of what kind of plan the coaches have, the players make the plans work."
"I can't say enough for our defense by accepting our challenge. It looked like when one player would slow a runner up, there were three or four showing up right behind him in some great gang tackling."
"When we had to run today, our offensive line was there. I'm sorry Raymond (Priester) didn't get his 100 yards, but he had it and the play was called back for holding. But I guess I am happiest for Sam (Zanders) who really turned on the after burners."
"We had to make a few adjustments on our game plan in the first half, and I believe we made another one or so in the second half. All of the adjustments helped us out."
On Nealon Greene's shoulder: "Nothing broken and he'll start getting treatment on it Sunday. Glenn Rountree went back in after having to come out for a few plays and he appears to be okay."
