BC-Clemson coaches quotes

Opening Statement:

"Two points of note to start with. B.J. Raji will not play the first half of this game. He threw a punch Thursday night which constitutes fighting and was notified by the ACC that he will be ineligible to play the first half this weekend so he will sit out the first half.

Even though Matt Ryan is supposed to be the starting quarterback he will be at least questionable for this week as to whether he will be able to play or not with an ankle injury."

Q: Did Ryan's ankle injury flare up on him when he got back?

"Well, he was limited Thursday night but played through it most of the time and, as it generally happens, a day or two later, it wasn't very functional. So, we'll see how he does.
