"I don't think they're going anywhere," he said in the delirious afterglow of 44-16.

"They'll be back."

An aside: Funny how some national media folks keep a file of things Swinney has said that haven't aged well, all the while ignoring the things he's said that have, all the while hoping everyone forgets the hot takes they themselves have made that have crashed and burned.

But we digress.
