About His Team's Play
" We need to obviously get a lot better. We are certainly capable of being a better ball club. It just came down to turnovers and we had a lot of them in the second half."

"I'm very disappointed in our team's effort. We didn't capitalize on the chances that we had early. And even at the half when we came out and had the score at 21-10, I thought we had Tech right where we wanted them. I also felt the game was in reach as we made it a two possession game and we had a chance to come back, but it just turned into a catch-up game."

Strong Safety Daniel Bullocks
On the game
" This was a very tough loss for us. We just have to come back next week and continue to get better."

On the second half
"We kept allowing them opportunities to keep scoring and we just basically gave the game away. They took advantage of our mistakes."

Quarterback Joe Daily
On the game
" I feel we had a shot at winning the game. Before the half, we got a couple big plays and I thought we were going to come back in the second half. We were just one big play away from making it a game."
