Dabo Swinney Recap

- Swinney is not concerned about preseason rankings, it's about how his team finishes 

- He wasn't surprised that Parker decided to come back this coming season to play football

- Parker has a lot of respect from his teammates

- Swinney really likes Taj Boyd, but having the leadership from Parker back is huge for his team this fall

- He hopes that Parker can lead the Tigers to Charlotte for the ACC Championship

- De'Andre McDaniel "epitomizes the word 'football player'"

- Swinney says that McDaniel can anticipate plays and "play a lot faster than he really is"

- He's a very physical football player, a rare breed at safety with tremendous ball-hawking skills

- According to Swinney, McDaniel has made great strides off the field, and that he's much more than just a football player as he'll graduate in December

- "Coach Bowden has been coaching a long time, longer than I am old, and a lot of people miss him, and I certainly will miss him on the opposite sideline, what a thrill for me to coach against a man like that and get to know him"

- "I hope that I can do half of what he's done in the fashion he did it in"

- Swinney has a tremendous amount of respect for Coach Bowden

- Swinney has a team on the same page and feels comfortable where they're at

- Swinney can't believe how this agent issue is a such a big problem, because of the compliance that each school has, and he has full confidence in his team that they will not make that mistake

Jim Grobe from Wake Forest is up next.
