Auburn Head Coach Gene Chizik

On the loss...

"I am very proud of our team. We just kept coming at them and coming back after jumping off to the quick start and Georgia came firing back. This one is a tough one to handle tonight." On Demond Washington's big kick return...

"That was real good to see him. He's been in so many roles the last few weeks. It is just really great to see a young guy step up to the plate and perform like that."

On Onterrio McCalebb returning to the lineup...

"He added to our offense tonight. He is still a big beat up but he sucked it up tonight and played hard."

On turnovers...

"We have a good football team but I don't know how good anybody is when we turn the ball over. That was certainly the case tonight. We're not good enough to come back from that yet, a lot of teams aren't."

Going into off week/Alabama

"Our guys have been going for 15 straight weeks, close to four months non-stop. We have to stay smart on how to give rest and still stay sharp for Alabama. We need to be smart about it and that is something that we'll look into tomorrow. They are going to take a few days off, and we need that."

On Georgia's injured safety...

"That is just one of those scary situations. We lived that two weeks ago, and we hope he is ok. Our thoughts are prayers are with him and his family.

Demond Washington- Safety/Kick Returner

On his 99-yard kickoff touchdown return...

"The kick return team blocked great, my hats off to those guys. The blockers were great and that was a big momentum shift."

On moving to safety...

"It was tough, but they are a great team. Coach Thigpen and Coach Lolley helped me a lot with the transition."

On the loss...

"Any loss is tough. We were up 14 and we let up a bit after that I think, but any loss is tough." On Georgia's running game...

"They are a great team, they ran really well in the second half and my hat goes off to them."

On the upcoming Alabama game...

"We'll be ready."
