CAPITAL ONE ORANGE BOWL: MISSISSIPPI STATE v GEORGIA TECH


December 31, 2014


Paul Johnson


MIAMI GARDENS, FLORIDA

Mississippi State - 34
Georgia Tech - 49


Q. テつYou're getting the victory in a very loud fashion.テつ What kind of statement did you make today?
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ Well, this is a good football team.テつ I think we're a top 10 football team for sure, and I'm proud of these guys.テつ At least for a week or two we're don't have to worry about the SEC.

Q.テつ You guys really redeemed yourselves.
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ We played awful in 2009 and I thought our kids played really hard.テつ I'm proud of them.テつ Our quarterback was a good player.テつ He played hard.
We were very resilient.テつ I think that Synjyn Days made a great run, and defensively we gave up a ton of yards, but when we got down in the red zone we made some plays and got some turnovers; just enough to win the game.

Q.テつ (Inaudible.)
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ Yeah, I thought it kind of gave us the momentum back, yeah.

Q.テつ You had two scores off of turnovers and one off the onside kicks.
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ Well, in the second half, I think we scored every time we had it until the fourth quarter down there.

Q.テつ (Inaudible.)
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ Well, if you're ahead, that's all you have to do.

Q.テつ (Inaudible.)
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ Well, that's what we do.テつ That's who we are.

Q. テつWhat do you tell them at halftime in the locker room?
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ Nothing really.テつ I mean, we just went back to what we do, and I drew up the defenses on the board, and I said here's where we are, here's the plays we run against them, just execute.テつ I said, hey, guys, it's 21‑20.テつ Nobody thought the game was going to be 30 minutes.テつ Their kid made a play.

Q.テつ How did your approach change in the second half?
PAUL JOHNSON:テつ Well, we started running the ball more inside the second half.テつ Our D backs ran hard.
