Swinney on Troy: "I thought they played well enough to win"

by - Assoc. Editor -

On the win:
“It is a great win. They’re all great. I appreciate our fans. They showed up early. Hats off to Troy. They were good enough to win today. We made enough mistakes. Our defense played great for 58 minutes, but I’m really disappointed with the finish. Our offense never got into rhythm. I believe there were eight dropped balls. Our field-goal team was excellent and so was our hands team at the end. Those are big plays.”

On Ray-Ray McCloud:
“Ray-Ray is still growing. I promise he’ll never do that again (referring to punt return fumble).”

On the end of the game:
“Seventeen points by the offense in the fourth quarter was huge. We had three straight scoring drives. Hopefully, we can pick up there next week. Huge momentum heading into next week. But we have to make routine plays. We found a way to win. Hats off to Troy. That’s a football team that fought harder than we did. Our next goal is to win the division.”

On playing young guys:
“We got a lot of guys good experience. That will pay dividends. We have to have depth.”
