DABO SWINNEY: (7:51)
"North Texas played us tough throughout the game. They hung in there and gave us a challenge. We had a lot of unknowns about them coming into the game, but our veteran guys made a lot of adjustments. The best thing about the game is that it's over. At the end of the day all that matters is the score and they had only 10 compared to our 35."
ON THE NEW STORM: "Both guys had over 100 yards, which was great. I wouldn't trade those two for any other guys in the nation. If we can establish and keep a good running offense throughout the season we can have an effective offense."
ON THE OFFENSIVE LINE: "Our core group is made up of veterans and they sure played with poise and did not let the North Texas defense panic them."
ON THE DEFENSE: "The guys played with a lot of aggression. They never gave up. Defensively we played hard. I'm looking forward to watching their progress throughout their service. Malliciah Goodman is a very diverse player. It's hard to find a guy with a body like his. He's a great person and I expect to see great things from him this season."
ON THE TIME OF POSSESSION: "The 42 minute to 18 minute difference is very frustrating. We had some explosive plays, which led to quick scores. We need to improve on third downs as a defense."
KYLE PARKER: (3:41)
"We have a lot of talented players, the biggest thing is that we need to become more consistent. Now that we've played this first game, we're going to be able to go into the rest of the games really knowing what we have. There are a lot of things we can get better at and we're going to have to get better. Today was a day to build our confidence for the rest of the season.
Those are two guys (Ellington and Harper) that definitely have experience, everyone's seen them run before. They're really talented and they're a big part of why we had a big offensive game today. You know what to expect when those guys are on the field."
JAMIE HARPER: (2:48)
"We got in there and Andre and I really just tried to make the new storm come alive. You know as a running back, every time you think about yourself touching the ball, you think you're going to be able to pop it. I told Andre last night in the hotel that he was going to pop out and score like that and sure enough, he did it."
"We've really been working on the receivers blocking. They did a great job of staying downfield and holding their blocks."
"We really learned a lot from C.J. and James, but now it's time for the new storm."
"The main objective is to win the game and you have to score to win. I think for me the receiving touchdown was more satisfying than the long run because I got the score."
