OPENING STATEMENT: We got good crisp work in today. We continue to work on things we'll see somewhere in the season. We had some good competive work mixed in as well. Team pass, skelly, we got a lot of red zone work. If we are going to be a good team we've got to be a really good red zone team, green zone team and we got some more full speed work on that. Good on good. Really wanted to come into the stadium today because two weeks from today we'll kick it off for real. Like I told the team, we've been working hard and we've made a lot deposits in the bank but we still aren't there yet.

We've got to withdrawal from that all season long so we've got some good work to do. We are right on schedule as far as how we planned. We are ahead of schedule in several areas. Trying to evaluate our depth and young guys. Come Wednesday it will be very focused with reps and who's getting it.

ON PLANNING FOR NORTH TEXAS: All we talk about is our first goal and that's winning the opener. We don't care about who it is because that's irrelavent. What matters to us the most is Clemson and how we work, how we prepare and how we practice, our technique, our fundamentals and our mentality. That's all that matters to us. At some point, which will be Wednesday, we'll turn the page and say 'ok, this first team's name is North Texas and here's what they do and let's go to work'. We don't get caught up in who we are playing as focusing on what we've got to do to be a good team. Top Stories
