Dabo Swinney talked to the media for his weekly press conference on Tuesday and told a story about how he was giddy that he was going to name walk-on Jim Brown a captain this weekend.

Syracuse's former running back Jim Brown is regarded as one of the top running backs in NFL history.

"Speaking of special teams, I've been waiting all year to name Jim Brown as the captain for the Syracuse game," Swinney said. "That's the way the response is supposed to be (laughter). We've got some wise, mature people in this room. When I said that to the team yesterday, I got nothing. Crickets. We've got our own Jim Brown. And they are all going (blank looks). It's sad beyond explanation that arguably the greatest running back of all time ... they don't even know who he is (laughing). The only Jim Brown they know is the snapper at Clemson. Once I explained the story to them they were like, 'Yeah I know him. I've seen a clip on him.' That will be neat seeing our Jim Brown serving as our captain this weekend."
