Never let it be said Dabo Swinney isn't a generous guy.
In an effort to shrug off the significance of the first rankings released by the College Football Playoff committee -- rankings topped, it turns out, by Clemson -- Swinney promised the Tigers' supporters a pizza party at year's end if his team makes the playoff.
“I promise you we will have the biggest poll party you've ever seen,” Swinney said. “We'll open up Death Valley and serve pizza to everybody on December 6th. That will be a time to celebrate a poll.”
That's a hefty offer, of course. After all, feeding 81,500 hungry fans is no easy task. At an average of eight slices per pie, that's about 10,188 pizzas if everyone only gets one slice.
Turns out, feeding a stadium full of Tigers fans celebrating a playoff berth might be every bit as tough as making the playoff.
