College Football Playoff Executive Director Says The Creamery Is His Favorite Spot To Eat
The second annual College Football Playoff National Championship is Monday night, and Penn State already picked up a win. CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock went on SBNation’s podcast, “The Solid Verbal,” to chat with host Ty Hildenbrandt (here’s the full episode, and Hancock joins the show at 38:48). The two opened up their talk with praise for one of the most iconic features of campus, the Creamery.
“You told me before you went on air that Penn State, my alma mater, has your favorite eating spots,” Hildebrandt said.
“People ask me where, you go to games all over the country Mr. Hancock, where’s your favorite place to eat and verily, it’s at Penn State at the Creamery. Peachy Paterno do they still have that? (“Oh yeah”) I’ve never been to the old Creamery, only the new one, people tell me a lot the ambiance changed.”
“The new one’s a bit more corporate but a lot better on space,” Hildebrandt replied. “I think it’s a good spot to go.”
Hancock went on to explain that his job takes him to all of the popular college football sites and enjoyed his culinary experiences in Ames, Iowa (home of Iowa State), Stillwater, Oklahoma (home of Oklahoma State), and a lot in Tuscaloosa. “I’ve sampled them all, but for me it’s the Creamery.”
He made another Penn State connection by shouting out alumna Laila Brock. Brock works with Hancock as the director for team operations and logistics — helping Clemson and Alabama players feel comfortable during their time in Glendale. As Penn State News reported, she also was a two-time captain and five-time letterwoman on Penn State’s Track and Field team.
It might be a while before Penn State becomes a contender for the College Football Playoff, but Hancock has some advice.
“Maybe if a little Peachy Paterno was sent to our office…”
