Clemson has some of the most diehard and loyal fanbases in college football as Tigers come from all across the country to see their football team play seven times a year in Death Valley.

However, not just Tigers but ducks are now venturing into TigerTown on gameday weekends.

A large duck was being walked with a lease traveling to its tailgate spot near the location of the Tiger Pregame show on Saturday morning.

It was fashionably dressed wearing a youth Clemson #89 jersey (Jay Jay McCullough fan) as it walked and quacked down the road.

Swinney used a story back in 2010 with ducks and eagles to describe people that just complain all the time.

"It is a true story about this guy who is actually a cab driver in New York City," Swinney said. "It’s a really great story about the power of attitude. Some people sit around and whine and complain, like a bunch of ducks, all quacking at the same time. Other people choose to soar like eagles, and rise above their circumstances. You have a choice every day to be an eagle or a duck. I shared that with the team, and I told them I didn’t want a bunch of ducks, that I wanted them soaring. I ask them, ‘are you quacking or are you soaring today?’ They have related really well to that, and that just popped into my head yesterday."

Here is a brief, entertaining video of someone that had two ducks as pets.
