Listen: Nick Sabin, Trevor Lawrence And Clemson discussed on WGR Programming
"The media room here at Levi stadium just a short time ago. Obviously you knew coming into Trevor Lawrence was not just a freshman at this point in the season anymore. But what did you think actually getting up there and seeing what he did out there on the phone? No surprise to me. I think he's played extremely well all year long. We knew that there receiver. They're receiving core was probably the most talented seen as a group, you know, all year long, eight five thirteen those guys are really really talented guys. And. You know, we had opportunities you could outfield on third down. We couldn't we couldn't get off the field. I mean, they were like eight of eleven at one point in time. Ten fifteen for the game. And we gave up big place. Not just first downs. Or we gave up big plague. So that in the combination of us, not finishing drives. I mean when you look at the stats of the game, and they basically had the ball for the last ten minutes of the game. But if you look at the stats of the game, you know, their yards and all that are fairly equal but score because of turnovers. Not finishing drives a red zone. Not getting off the field on third down giving up explosive. Plays score doesn't indicate anything like that. Nick, what do you attribute the number of mistakes and the lack of execution? Well, first of all you gotta give Clemson a little bit of credit. They got a they have a really good team. I think the responsibility for us not playing well really starts with me. You know, we obviously didn't go out there. And they did do some things that we weren't prepared for. But you always expect that couple of bunch passes that Oklahoma ran and some other people that we had to make adjustments who would have time. And but you know, I thought the players prepared well for this game. And I think that you know, they just got outperformed wasn't like we just didn't cover a guy. I mean, we tried to cover number eighty caught the ball made a big play. We're in three deep zone whenever five catches a ball runs. You know, fifty yards sixty yards for a touchdown play. The third properly. So, you know, those responsibilities are start with me on our staff and all the coaches who try to get these guys ready, and when we don't play well, I feel like that's a reflection on the job that we did the job. But I did and. So, but you know, Clemson did are really really good job. I mean, I know the score. There's a lot of good things that our team did out there today, especially on offense. And we did stop the run on defense, but couldn't get off sealed on third down. So sometimes we just didn't get them covered. A couple of times we made some errors on things that they did that we had not practised that were difficult and they're pretty good. They are pretty good indeed Nick Sabin. He mentioned they couldn't get off on third down. Clemson ten of fifteen on third that is the best ever against a Nick Sabin Alabama team outplayed in so many ways and a lot of those conversions by clubs over by their true freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence. He's."
