Hairston, McDaniel discuss season

GREENSBORO, N.C. - Clemson's Chris Hairston and DeAndre McDaniel talk about the upcoming season with members of the media from around the ACC>

S DEANDRE MCDANIEL: (8:43)

ON PRESEASON PREDICTIONS, RANKINGS
"I don't have no problems. Everybody can have their opinions. It'll give us a little bit more push. We want that. When people down talking us, we feel we have a little more something to prove. They're talking up the defense, but they're kind of talking the team down because they feel the offense isn't as good. This defense is very comfortable with our offense. We feel like we're one of the top defenses.

REPLACING SPILLER
"I feel good confidence with those guys. It wasn't a one-man thing. They're going to fill C.J. Spiller's shoes. Jamie Harper and Andre Ellington, the sky's the limit with them."

OL CHRIS HAIRSTON: (6:45)

MOST ASKED QUESTION
"The big thing is how you feel about Kyle Parker making a decision to come back. Being that recent news, everybody has to ask that question."

DID YOU GET EMOTIONAL LIKE DWAYNE (ALLEN)?
"I was glad he was back. It's a big deal having him back. I was glad about it, happy we've got a great quarterback back."

TALKING TO PARKER
"I haven't spoken with him since the whole decision thing has gone down. When I see him, it's going to be a good feeling."

DO YOU BELIEVE IT?
"Hopefully he's back. I've seen it 50 different places that he's made his decision to come back. Hopefully everything works out where he can make it to camp and play this season out."
