Here are the first audio files for the upcoming season as Swinney answers a round of questions from reporters:
"I probably can't explain it [how excited he is for the start of the season]. It's kind of hard to explain something you've waited your whole life for and then all of a sudden you are given that opportunity. I came off vacation and they had moved my boxes over [to the West Zone]. I was driving to work, and I almost turned into the McFadden lot. It was like I was getting ready to start school. I was so excited to drive up because it had been two weeks. To be able to pull up to Death Valley to go to work is unbelievable. It's unbelievable. I told the team last week not only to we play in Death Valley, we live in Death Valley. We have to take a lot of pride in that."
"I'd say that's over. I don't expect any type of honeymoon period or anything like that [with the fans]. I'm just focused on this team and doing what it takes to win football games. Things that I believe in and getting these kids to believe in - that's really what my focus is. The bottom line is we've got to find a way to win football games. The fun is in the winning."
And so it begins...
