Quarterback Tajh Boyd
On what the win means:

“I think it was a good win. Nothing that we didn’t expect in the program, but I think it turned a lot of heads in college football. It was a very monumental win for this University, for this program, for the conference in general. I think we were the only non-conference team to beat two top ten SEC teams in a row and all that good stuff is great, but just have to continue to keep working and keep our eyes on the prize. This is only the opener. We have 11 more games left. We just have to continue to work.”

On the four ties:

“Yes. We kind of knew what the situation would be. I kind of took it in two different ways, either this game is going to be a tight one or all around it’s not going to be as close as people think it was. Again, it was a little tight throughout the game, but that’s what we play for. This team is a veteran team. We have been every situation you could possibly image. We have been down 18. We have been up and lost. We just got absolutely blew out. It’s situation like these where you know what type of team you have. You know what type of players you have surrounding you and you know that they’ll leave everything out there on that field. That is just what I expected from my team tonight.”

On Seckinger’s touchdown:

“He is a really good player. He is just unbelievable talent. He’s a younger guy so he just has to continue to keep building. I am very confident in him. Obviously Coach Morris is confident in him for him to even be an option in that situation. I don’t really know why it was under review. I jogged off the field like it was a touchdown. I am very proud of him and the way he performed. Darrell [Smith] had a great game at the Tight End position. We are expecting Sam Cooper, Jordan Leggett, and Jay Jay McCullough to come along within the next few weeks, but I am proud of the way those guys performed tonight.”

Wide Receiver Sammy Watkins
On Tiger Walk:

“It was crazy. They welcomed us in. The fans were really crazy and I was excited. It was the greatest moment I have ever seen since I have been here. Seeing them going crazy it got me really excited with them, and I loved it.”

On making plays early:

“It was great. Overall, I still think we can get better at the wide receiver spot. We made the big plays that coach wanted us to make and we still have a lot of improvement to make.

On having too many drops:

“Overall, I think too many mistakes and too many drops. I think we were kind of psyched out a little bit because it was Georgia, and a big game and we just have to treat it like any other game.
It’s a great compliment, but it still can hurt us losing another game. We just have to get better and work at it in practice. We just need to calm down and relax in the game. I think we kind of did it in the fourth quarter when we started making a lot of plays on the edge and blocking. It’s a great accomplishment against Georgia.”

Running Back Roderick McDowell
On the statement this made for the team:

“Clemson is here just like Stephone [Anthony] said when he was coming here, Clemson is coming and this right here really stamps it forward. There is more games to come. We just can’t say ‘okay we beat Georgia, now everything else is easy now.’ Every day we have to come to play.

On how gratifying this win is:

“Like I said before it’s a blessing. The offensive line, I have to give credit to them. Those boys went out there and blocked holes for me to run in, so I have to give credit to those guys.”

On running the clock at the end of the game:

“As an offense, that’s the best thing to go out there and play victory formation. When you go into victory formation that’s one of the best things to happen, to hear the crowd. Our fans were like the 12th man out there. They came out there and brought it 24/7. It was a wonderful feeling.”
