- "Defensively, I thought they were very average. Nobody on the D-line scares you. Nobody at the linebacker position scares you."
- "The loss of (tailback) Andre Ellington is big. I don’t think he got enough credit nationally. He was a really good player."
- "It’s kind of their M.O., but over years, it’s been harder for them. When you walked in, you had Stephen Hill to line up out there and stretch the D. We use it against them. Playing that offense, hard to recruit receivers. All they will do is block."
- "Ted Roof is a good hire. Great for Tech go get a guy like that. You look at those guys on D and they play hard. I thought they had some talent on D. The secondary has its problems."
