ATLANTA — As far as ridiculous college football traditions go, stamping a $2 bill with an orange Clemson tiger paw is pretty benign… But in South Carolina, students and alumni settle for buying up most of the $2 bills in town and stamping them with tiger paws.
The ritual is especially important when there is a big away game, like the Orange Bowl against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Wednesday in Miami. By spending stamped $2 bills with abandon, many of the 10,000 or so Clemson fans headed to Florida believe they will make a statement about Tiger pride.
What that statement might be is unclear to cabdrivers and clerks who have to contend with a denomination that makes up less than 1 percent of the bills in circulation, but it means something back in a state that loves tradition.
“It’s a Clemson calling card,” said Wil Brasington, 33, senior director of alumni relations and member of the class of 2000. “The idea is, we’re bringing an economic boost to any community the Clemson Tigers are playing in.”
