Postgame Quotes -- Notre Dame 38, Wake Forest 0
Nov. 17, 2012
How much did the fumble in the first quarter hurt your momentum?
I'd like to say that Josh's fumble got it going the wrong way, but they played great today, and we just weren't enough for them.
Was it a case where they had everything working offense, defense, and the whole package, really?
But they had four or five individual efforts going for passes that were just phenomenal efforts, where we were around and had a chance to compete but didn't make a play.
I thought that Wood ran the ball very good today. The quarterback was very loose, gave us a lot of problems on the perimeter and couldn't contain on bootlegs. They just played great football today.
Were you a little happy you were able to control it in the second half? You didn't score, but at least you guys held in there a little bit.
They got to play a lot of players. We got to play a lot of players, and I think a lot of kids got a chance to get on the field today. But by halftime they pretty much closed us out. We hoped to come out and start the first drive of the second half. We felt like if we could get a score on our first drive and got a couple of first downs and had to punt the ball back. But we just never could make it a game today. They played great.
I wondered if you could talk about Everett Golson, his play, and did he surprise you at all?
A couple times we felt like we had a chance to get off the field, and he threw a couple of out routes that were money. I thought the kid played great tonight. I think what impressed us as much as anything is how well he threw the football. They had some pretty good guys to throw it to too.
Along the lines of pretty good guys to throw it too, talk about Tyler Eifert and his impact in the two years that you've had to scout him and figure out a defense to contain him?
From your perspective, if Notre Dame can close out next week, should Notre Dame be in the National Championship Game?
So they've impressed me today. I guess there will be a lot of other people that make that call. But I think they're as good a team as anybody in the country.
