Dabo Swinney Press Conference, Windows Media, (17:00)


On Victory:

"The goal was to win tonight, and we achieved this win. Middle Tennessee played strong throughout the game. They will be a very competitive team in their conference. Our kids had a solid game. Our defense was solid tonight, until the end of the game. Special teams showed up today as well. C.J. Spiller had an impressive 170 all-purpose yards and only played in one half. The kickoff coverage was great as well. These guys showed great leadership tonight."


On Kyle Parker:

"He was outstanding today. He missed one throw all night, and there were about four big drops from the receivers tonight. He was dead on all night. He made big plays with his feet, showing a lot of poise. I was really proud of him tonight. He has a good presence and great instincts in his ability to make big plays."


On Defense:

"Overall, the defense played solid. Brandon Maye and DeAndre McDaniel stepped up tonight. They are both passionate players. They show a sign of the season we are going to have. We had great collisions tonight by the guys in orange, which is always a good thing."

"I was very surprised they kicked it back there (opening return for a touchdown). My teammates did a great job getting their blocks and I just tried to read it the best way I could. I just tried to make a play and it gave us a lot of momentum from the beginning to the end. We're seeing how explosive we can be when we don't beat ourselves."

LB Brandon Maye, Windows Media


"Any time you get a victory, you've got to enjoy that, because it's so hard to get victories. We've got to continue to work hard. We gave up a couple of plays, but we played our butts off. Coach Steele told us to get some turnovers, get some takeaways, and give the offense a chance, and things would work out for us. We knew we had to come out and strip the ball, intercept the ball, get after the quarterback."


DB Chris Chancellor, Windows Media


OL Thomas Austin, Windows Media


"I thought we got off to a little bit of a slow start offensively. I thought we adjusted well and started picking up some stuff. Kyle definitely got better as the game went on. He made some great plays. The defense played outstanding in the first half. We're happy to get the win."
