Clemson head coach Dabo SwinneyDabo Swinney Head Coach View Full Profile talked to the media for a few minutes before heading out to play a round of golf on Wednesday at the annual media golf tournament at the Reserve at Keowee.
"People ask me, ‘Do you dread getting back to the grind?’ No I don’t," Swinney said. "This is the best time of the year. I love the preparation part of it. I love the grind part of it. I love the structure and the continuity that we have when the season gets here. But most importantly I love being with the players. I love seeing the guys every single day and really building a team.
“We look forward to that. We have a lot to do with this year’s team in particular. We will get back to our staff meetings with the coaches tomorrow, and we will start our All In meetings next Wednesday. We have a lot to do as a staff. We have a great staff, and it’s going to be a fun year to come to work every day. You have to have talent, and we have talent. I love our roster. But we have a lot of guys that have to develop, and that is what coaching is all about and the process of camp is all about. There are always guys that surprise you that you didn’t expect and then there are some guys that disappoint you a little bit."
