WATCH: Muschamp's postgame comments after 56-35 loss to Clemson


by - Assoc. Editor -

South Carolina coach Will Muschamp spoke with the media following his team's 56-35 loss to rival Clemson on Saturday night.

"We came here to win the game and we didn't get the job done," Muschamp said.

On the game:

“We came here to win the game, and we didn’t get the job done.”

On the defense’s injuries and ability to get stops:

“It is what it is. That’s where we are right now. We’re a little short on defense, and that has limited us. At one point we had six true freshmen on the field. They’re going to be good players, but I wish we weren’t put in this situation...it’s not fair to them. But that’s where we are right now.”

On the play after halftime:

“Offensively, we played extremely well. We needed to score touchdowns in the red zone. In both situations, I told [offensive coordinator Bryan McClendon] he had four downs. We needed to go score, knowing our situation defensively.”

On fourth down plays:

“I think they defended the ball on both of those. I had a hard time seeing down on the other end zone, but down here [in the West End Zone], I thought they did a good job defending the ball.”

On postgame feelings:

“The guys fought their guts out. We came here to win the game.”

On Jake Bentley’s performance:

“I thought he played extremely well...gutsy, tough. That’s who he is. I’m glad he’s our quarterback.”
