Quotes from Death Valley (Clemson)Plenty of good things to talk about this week before Georgia Tech comes to town.
— Clemson’s defense looked much better in the second half against Boston College. Cornerback Garry Peters saw significant playing time, and most notably, a pass break-up and interception against the Eagles will give the sophomore a chance to start this week. One-on-one coverage in the second half was much improved, and that will be key this week against the Yellow Jackets and the triple option.
“I laugh when people say we don’t have talent [on defense]. We don’t have a lot of experience on defense but we are getting better. We are getting better. I’d go back and recruit all of these guys all over again. We have a lot of guys who are playing a lot and who may not be ready for their role but I’m proud of them. We have a great defensive staff. They aren’t guys that don’t work on things every day. I’m encouraged, not discouraged.”
