Video of Dabo Swinney's post game press conference from the Clemson vs. North Texas game.
Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney
"North Texas played us tough throughout the game. They hung in there and gave us a challenge. We had a lot of unknowns about them coming into the game, but our veteran guys made a lot of adjustments. The best thing about the game is that it's over. At the end of the day all that matters is the score and they had only 10 compared to our 35."
On Jamie Harper and Andre Ellington:
"Both guys had over 100 yards, which was great. I wouldn't trade those two for any other guys in the nation. If we can establish and keep a good running offense throughout the season we can have an effective offense."
On Offensive Line:
"Our core group is made up of veterans and they sure played with poise and did not let the North Texas defense panic them."
"The guys played with a lot of aggression. They never gave up.
"Defensively we played hard. I'm looking forward to watching their progress throughout their service.
"Malliciah Goodman is a very diverse player. It's hard to find a guy with a body like his. He's a great person and I expect to see great things from him this season."
On Time of Possession Difference:
"The 42 minute to 18 minute difference is very frustrating. We had some explosive plays, which led to quick scores. We need to improve on third downs as a defense."
