On the depth of his team and overall defensive performance:

“Today was a great day to develop the entire team. I thought we had good focus where everyone played well and did their job. I thought the second group was ready. I told them no matter what, they’d be going in the third series…and they responded. They were able to flex their muscles and show the depth we have. Overall, we took care of business and outside of two plays, we had a very good defensive and special teams performance.”

On the play of Cole Stoudt:

“Cole came in and played great. We weren’t planning on using him as early as we did, but he was just awesome.”

On the play of his defensive backs:

“Both Darius (Robinson) and Martin (Jenkins) have fought through some adversity, so it was good to see them get rewarded. The interception by Jenkins was good by itself, but that was a heck of a run after the catch.

“It was good to see the young guys get some playing time. Now we have some tape that we can learn a lot from.”

On the fans at today’s game:

“I just want to thank the fans, they were great and had good energy. It was just awesome to see that support.”

On starting ACC play at NC State on Sept. 19:

“They’ll challenge us. We definitely need to perform better than we did two years ago when we went up there. Our next goal is to win the division.”

Playing the week after a big game:

“Yesterday’s touchdowns don’t count today. I thought the team was in control was the start. They had the mindset to make a statement, especially coming off an emotional win vs. UGA.”
