Clemson coach Dabo Swinney on the loss to Syracuse: "They just kicked our butt. That needs to be the story. Sometimes you get your butt whipped, and we did. We have to own it, learn from it, grow from it, and respond."

Swinney visits Cuse locker room to give kudos

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney addressed a contingent of Orange players after Friday's shocking 27-24 Syracuse win, pulling aside receiver Steve Ishmael to compliment his performance and snapping a couple of pictures with players.

David M. Hale ESPN Staff Writer 

Zaire Franklin said Dabo Swinney sought out Steve Ishmael in the locker room to compliment his game, addressed all the players to congratulate them on the win, and even took pictures with a couple players. "That's one of the classiest things I've seen in my life," Franklin said. "To have been knocked down like that and have the humility to come talk to us, that was cool as hell."

Eric Dungey on Steve Ishmael: "If they're holding him, pushing him, it shows what they think of him."

Syracuse QB Eric Dungey was 20-of-32 for 278 yards and 3 TDs to go with 91 rush yards on 17 carries. He mastered the Clemson defense like few QBs have in the Brent Venables era. Amazing performance.

Michael Rothstein ESPN Staff Writer 

In a weird bit of timing, here's what Detroit Lions coach Jim Caldwell said about the toughest place he ever had to coach in -- Syracuse. Even more valid now after the Orange upset No. 2 Clemson on Friday night. "What I think the toughest stadium is to play in that I've ever been around, it's Syracuse. Back in college, alright? That's the toughest one. It's the hardest one to hear. It's noisy. It's a matter of fact, back in my old days when I was in college, I was up in the box, and the windows were open at that particular location, and you literally could not hear the guy sitting next to you talk. It's so loud. So, that's probably the place that created the most noise for us. That was back in the old days when there were two really good teams playing and that kind of thing. But every stadium has it's own challenges.”
