Day 5 in Miami VISUAL RECAP OF CLEMSON'S fifth DAY IN MIAMI FOR THE 2015 ORANGE BOWL.
SWINNEY PRESS CONFERENCE
The day started with head coach Dabo Swinney's press conference, the final pregame press conference for any member of the Tigers. Swinney met with a throng of media members, including many national writers, in a hotel ballroom. Swinney fielded questions on a variety of topics, both on the field and off. Of course he handled all the questions in his typical fashion, with direct answers and a smile. After the 40-minute question and answer session, Swinney walked over to the Orange Bowl trophy and posed for pictures with Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops.
A total of 22 players and head coach Dabo Swinney returned to Jungle Island for the Orange Bowl Coaches Luncheon. The Tigers entered the ballroom through a line of cheerleaders, Rally Cats and Tiger Band members to "Tiger Rag." After the players enjoyed a delicious lunch and some awards were handed out, the 2015 Orange Bowl Hall of Fame class was introduced. Alex Brown (Florida), Reggie Kinlaw (Oklahoma) and Ernie Koy (Texas) all joined the prestigious club. Next up was Swinney, Eric Mac Lain, Deshaun Watson, Travis Blanks and Ben Boulware, who all took a seat at the front to take questions from ESPN's Todd Blackledge and Holly Rowe. The crowd got lots of laughs when Mac Lain and Boulware discussed the team's infamous "Beard Gang." Swinney also mentioned how much joy the season has brought to all Tiger fans.
