Morris - Turnovers Unacceptable

By

Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris met with the media following Clemson’s loss to NC State.

“It starts and ends with me as the offensive coordinator.  Right now we aren’t playing with near the confidence level that we were playing with earlier in the year over the last three weeks.  Our inability to protect the football.  It has been a glaring concern.  It showed today.  We turned the ball over four times.  It is unacceptable.  Not when you do such a great job for the first eight games of the year.  Whether that is a  lack of focus.  It has continued to be harped on in practice.  Believe me we discuss it over and over and over.  We as coaches aren’t doing anything different as far as how we are teaching our ball security.  Right now it is not working.  We turned the ball over entirely too much and we can’t win when you turn the fall over,” said Morris.

How much did the loss of Watking hurt the offense?

“I think everybody missed Sammy tonight.  There is no doubt about it but we are more than a one man team and while he does give us the explosion.  There is not doubt about that he does give us a verbal threat.  We have guys that are busting their tails out there and it definitely hurt that we didn’t have Sammy but you have to give credit to NC State.  My hat is off to them.  They came out and out played us,” said Morris.
