Win or lose, Swinney's pizza party is a go

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney talked to the media for his weekly press conference on Tuesday and discussed various topics including announcing that the celebratory pizza party will take place in Death Valley on Sunday regardless of the outcome of the ACC Championship game.

"We gonna have a pizza party on Sunday," Swinney said. "That's gonna happen and this thing kinda took a life of its own somehow but its kinda hard to plan for a pizza party if you do not know the outcome. You can't just plan a pizza party if you win the game cause you are not going to know until midnight or one in the morning. That's a lot of dough. As the season has planned out, the important thing, regardless if we win or not the game Saturday night, this team deserves to be celebrated. It really does. We gonna have a pizza party and (Joe G.) will give you the details of the time."

Swinney finished up by saying that "Papa Johns has stepped up. They're all in."

Swinney promised pizza back in November to all of the faithful Clemson fans.

"The only poll that we’re excited about is Dec. 6, and I promise you we’ll have the biggest poll party you’ve seen,” Swinney said. "We’ll open up Death Valley and serve pizza to everybody. That’ll be a time to celebrate a poll. Until then, it doesn’t matter."
