Clemson Linebacker Barrett Carter Tough on Himself After Loss to Duke

Clemson linebacker Barrett Carter met with the media Wednesday and recapped the Tigers’ loss to Duke, where the Tigers need to improve and much more.

Here is what we heard:

“Losing any game is super hard. I give all the credit to Duke, they had a great game plan, just a very well coached team, but any game that you lose and any game that you don’t come out on top is always tough to watch.”

“We know what we need to do to move forward now, we figured out the mistakes and what went wrong on our side.”

“It is always tough to watch a loss like that”

“Any game that we don’t win, and I put a lot on myself, I feel like I left a lot on the field and I watched even more film than we did as a team, figuring out what I need to do to be better myself, be a better teammate, and be a better leader for these guys.”

“At the end of the day it all comes down to execution and players making plays and we didn’t do that and that is why we didn’t win.”

“I have to get in better shape… I think game shape is just different, you go through practice and there is really no way to replicate the speed of a game.”

“So for me, I just need to get some extra running in and make sure that my condition is where it needs to be to play four quarters or however long the game will take, but I realized that really early in the game that I need to get in better shape.”
