$2 Bills

I'm a busy guy, don't generally spend time reading forums, and never leave messages or get involved in discussions. It's a total waste of time and intellect to get involved in pointless banter with a faceless, nameless computer screen. However, I was so impressed with the Clemson fans and traditions that I thought I would temporarily create an account and leave a comment about some things I learned during this championship event.

First, I found the Clemson fans to be generally great people. I make no excuses for the a-hole LSU crowd that felt the need to start crap when none was needed. Though I don't live in Louisiana anymore, I love some things about the state, others not so much. I am a die-hard, purple and gold blooded LSU guy. Our fanbase has a reputation for rudeness, and I won't run from that. But I myself would never let my fandom drag me to that level of debauchery. It is what it is.

I had to break a large bill to pay for a meal, and the waiter handed a stack of bills for change. In the midst I saw a few $2 bills. I was surprised to see them, since it's such a rare thing these days. I quickly glanced and noticed a little orange tint on them, but thought nothing about it. Later, as I was organizing my cash, I looked closer and noticed the Clemson print. Gotta tell you, made me smile! Then I saw some pictures of fans holding similar bills. Googled it, and learned about the history of the Clemson/GT rivalry and how the $2 bill thing started. I thought to myself, that's about the coolest freaking tradition I've ever heard! Now, whenever a local in N.O. gets one of these bills over the next couple of years, they'll be forced to think about you guys. Brilliant!

Anyway, I'm not a troll, so I'm saying my peace and getting off your site. Just wanted to let you know that Clemson made a very good impression on me this week. You've got another fan here, especially if you end up playing Alabama for the natty next year. I have no doubt that you'll be there many times before we get another shot at it.


Thank You Sir! ??

Welcome back anytime.

Oh..LSU was a great team, as we knew, and they played Lights Out & deserved their win & Natty Trophy!

As DabO graciously said in post game presser..LSU was a “beautiful“ team to watch.

Thanks Joe. So much hate out there in the football fan base that I thought the good fans should know when they truly make a difference.

Well, your first paragraph started a little ‘rough’ for me, but you finished strong!

Good post and come back again. Besides, we’ll be playing again in 5 years...


GO Tigers!!!

LSU Fans and the 2$ Bills

Of course there was a minority of well served LSU fans that were a little over the top, but I have seen Clemson Tiger Fans that way.
My issue is the vulgar T-Shirts and Phrases that just don't belong anywhere near this sport or families or even in a public environment.
I had very pleasant experience with many LSU fans that were quite complementary and objective about the game and each teams program.
On the 2$ bills, one of our Uber drivers was very proud of his and having it framed and then another Uber driver and bartender had fun with the orange 2$ Bills.
Congrats to LSU - for sure the better team Monday night.
Lets go get that trophy in Miami - Go Tigers


Thanks for Posting***

Great post! When it’s time to play us in Clemson, I would love to host you at our tailgate. We have an avid LSU fan originally from NOLA who comes to a game or two at Clemson every year with our tailgate neighbors. Congratulations on a fantastic season. Your boys deserve the trophy.

Thanks, I appreciate the offer. Since we have a future meeting in the works, I may have to check back here from time to time... make an exception to my own rules, haha. I think that will definitely be a must see series, likely our biggest challenge next to Alabama. I would love to visit Clemson's Death Valley, see how the other side of the desert looks!

If you love tradition, then visiting the first original stadium to be named Death Valley, and the history behind the name of Clemson Death Valley. I say come for a visit, you will be welcomed, and treated in an utmost welcoming way at Clemson's Death Valley, Go Tigers in the original Death Valley ( on campus ) FB stadium, where the beauty of Clemson university is breathtaking!!!
