Syracuse loss puts things in perspective

If there is a good reason for losing a football game, then Clemson tight end Milan Richard has one.

“Just that it is possible,” he said. “You kind of get to a point where you feel unbeatable and then reality kind of hits and you are like, ‘Wow! Wait a minute.’ You still have to put the work in and put the time in each week. So you definitely want to go through a season without losing one, but the fact that we did lose gave us a little more perspective.”

The seventh-ranked Tigers (6-1, 4-1 ACC) hope that it gets them back on track come Oct. 28 when they get back on the field and host Georgia Tech in Death Valley. Losing for just the third time in the last 40 games is obviously something they are not used to.

“It’s tough,” Richard said. “Coach (Dabo) Swinney told us yesterday that we are at a point in our program where it hurts when we lose. He said that is where we want it to me and that is what it should be. So we don’t lose often, but when we do it is hard and it is tough. So it is a good reminder for us.”
