Dabo Swinney likes his team. Check that. Dabo Swinney loves, I mean really loves his football team. Sunday in reviewing the win at Syracuse on a conference call with the media, Swinney couldn’t say enough good things about his players. He feels at this point his team is playing at a very high level in all phases.
Here are some of Swinney’s key comments:
- Thought they improved from first road trip and proud of the team.
- This is a good group, they’re fun to coach and they are having fun. Thought the effort was tremendous.
- Martin Jenkins played with a broken thumb and a broken tooth.
- Blanks and Boulware are questionable. Will know more by Wednesday.
- Players of the game…Boyd, Humphries, Beasley, Robinson.
- If they look past BC for FSU, they will get beat. Got hands full with BC. Only objective is to get to 6-0.
- BC is playing with some confidence, playing tough and physical.
- Feel like they can run the ball when they want to run it, and they can pass the ball when they want to pass it.
- Very encouraged with the play of the secondary. They are playing very good football.
