6. Clemson “Tiger Rag”
Clemson is a university known for the traditions conducted by its players; namely touching Howard’s Rock and running down the hill. But its fans have some pretty great traditions as well. Since 1942, they’ve never tired of playing and hearing Tiger Rag — “The Song That Shakes The Southland.” It’s a classic jazz song (their fight song) and it can be heard at every tailgate station in Clemson on Saturday home games.
Fans of the Tigers take tailgating very seriously and it shows. They have their own currency of sorts which is used during the pre-game festivities. They pay with two-dollar bills equipped with tiger paw stamps. Clemson faithful even took a page out of Wisconsin’s book and has their own type of cured blue-cheese enjoyed almost exclusively at their tailgate parties. The collection of unique behavior at Clemson tailgate parties is certainly impressive.
