Postgame Coaches’ Quotes


Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney

“This is what we talked about all week – be who you are. If you want it to change, change it. The guys had a great week of practice and I knew they were focused. I couldn’t be more proud of this team.


“I’m so happy for our team and staff. This was a great way to finish out the season. After we started 1-2, to go undefeated at home, break the streak against South Carolina and to get these seniors their 41st win, I couldn’t think of a better way to close out the season.


“With the exception of being in the College Football Playoff, you couldn’t script it any better. Offensively, we had 491 yards with zero sacks (allowed), and Deshaun Watson was unbelievable.


“Defensively, those guys played great. We stopped them on the goal line and short yardage. It was a great game for those defensive guys, too. It was just a tremendous performance from everyone.


“The fans deserve this win, so I hope they enjoy it. We’re going to enjoy it, too, and we can’t wait to get back at it next year.



South Carolina Head Coach Steve Spurrier

Overall thoughts:

“I told the guys, ‘6-6 might be what we are.’ Clemson was better than us. They played better and they coached better. Give those guys credit, they are better than us. They are a better team than we are. Simple as that. Obviously, we could have some we lost and lost some we won. That’s where they are, and they’ll try to win the bowl.”


On guarding the pitch passes:

“We’ve given up some long ones before, but we didn’t stop those two shovel passes.”


On Thompson’s fumble:

“That was a careless play on his part. He said he didn’t feel the guy.”

DeShawn Williams, DT

On being a vocal leader:

“This right here…this meant so much to me. I played with a little chip on my shoulder.”


On the game winding down:

“I told everybody that I’m not happy until it hit 0:00. Anything can happen. That second half, it hit me. This is my last half at Memorial Stadium. Coach (Dan) Brooks told us to give it all we had the last 15 minutes, and we came out with a ‘W’.”
