According to the U.S. Treasury, in 2007 there was $1,549,052,714 worth of $2 bills in circulation. That means there were 774,526,357 actual paper bills. That’s a pretty big number, but Clemson fans are trying to make sure that as many as possible have an orange Tiger paw on them.
Clemson bills are one of the more unique college sports traditions and leave a lasting impression wherever they turn up. The Tigers have some of the most loyal fans in football when it comes to away games. They follow their beloved team wherever they go and prepare, especially for big games, by buying as many $2 bills as they can find to spend in the area. This way, even long after the game is done and the Clemson delegation is gone, the special Tiger bills stick around as a reminder of their school spirit.
The University of Arkansas
Hog calling in hunting season has got nothing on hog calling for fall football in Arizona: Woooooo, Pig. Sooie! Woooooo, Pig. Sooie! Woooooo, Pig. Sooie! Razorbacks! To get the authentic experience at home, first, raise your hands on the “woo” and then wiggle your fingers and finally bring out the fist bump. If you’re still unsure, you can practice with the video.
This is definitely one of the most enjoyable and entertaining chants of all of the college sports. Sitting in the stands when this one starts belting out is the experience of a lifetime. If you do not have a huge grin on your face when this chant is over, well we guess you just didn’t Sooie loud enough.
Pennsylvania State University
The only way to describe Penn State’s “white-out” is breathtaking. Almost every group of fans has tried to hold a white-out home game at one time or another, from high school teams to the NFL. But fans of the Nittany Lions are anything but average, which they proved to the world during their white-out at Beaver Stadium.
This tradition is made even more special because it only takes place one game a year. An incredibly bright game for which PSU fans all prepare. It is the game of the season and people should only be allowed in with protective eyewear because when you walk into a stadium filled with 110,000 white tees, it is like staring at the sun.
The University of Alabama
“Roll Tide!” is so much more than just a football cheer. It is a form of greeting, a way to say, “I love you,” and can obviously be used as “let’s go!” If you walk around Tuscaloosa during football season, without sporting some crimson and white or an item of Alabama clothing you may get a stern talking to, but if you forget to utter a nice “roll tide” in the conversation, well then, all bets are off.
The Crimson Tide are probably the most widely despised football team in college sports, and the reason is crystal clear: jealousy. In the entire history of college sports traditions, nothing can compete with the Alabama catchphrase. So Crimson fans just keep doing what you’re doing and represent your amazing football team with another “Rollllllll TIDE!”
The University of Mississippi (Ole Miss)
The South is pretty much synonymous with great college football, but Ole Miss has had its share of ups and downs in the super-competitive SEC. No one can dispute that they are the clear winners when it comes to the college sports tradition of tailgating. Welcome to The Grove.
Aptly known as the greatest tailgating spot in the country, this enormous wooded expanse of red and blue tents in the middle of campus draws in over 100,000 fans a game. Even if their team loses, Mississippi fans will enjoy food, drink, and an amazing party.
