Jolly Good Fellow
The Clemson game was tough. GT started off with 4 offensive series in a row of 3's and out. Clemson has a top offense and that many three and outs to start the game is mentally tough on any defense. Don't forget the field position disadvantage of giving up the ball after a 3 and out after a kick off.
Speaking of field position, IIRC we had quite a bit of trouble fielding kickoffs that game too. Looks like all three phases deserve a share of the blame.
