Georgia Tech vs. Clemson: Orwin Smith says losses are 'self-inflicted'

Joshua S. Kelly-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Georgia Tech A-back Orwin Smith said the losses the team has faced recently are the effects of their own mistakes.

Georgia Tech is the loser of three consecutive games and it is starting to wear on the players. But A-back Orwin Smith isn't blaming the misfortune on bad luck; rather, he says the Yellow Jackets' own self-inflicted wounds are to blame for the disappointment.

These were some comments from Smith after Saturday's loss against Clemson:

"I consider it bad luck when you're doing the right things and still losing. But we're still making mistakes. It's self-inflicted, the reason we're losing. I just feel like we're that close to being good, the games we've lost, even this one. We just have to do better."

Smith also talked about the safety he rendered. According to Smith, he and quarterback Tevin Washington both saw a seam for Smith to break through, but the middle linebacker was hiding behind his defensive lineman in that situation, and was rather difficult to spot. The linebacker beat Smith to the edge and caught him by surprise, then was able to stuff him in the end zone.

Georgia Tech has a bye week before facing Boston College.
