How do you feel about clemsons tombstone tradition
Any top 25 win away from home gets a tombstone
That kind of cheapens it for me with the status of their program today
Maybe change it to acc championship, playoff and national title only

LSU is in the graveyard for the bowl game they lost but at least not for this year

Anyone else in the graveyard?

re: How do you feel about clemsons tombstone tradition
Every "tradition" in Clemson is stupid.

They ride a rented bus around their stadium to rub a rock that was stolen from a national park and run down a hill that has two transitions to it. After the game the mob the field so boosters can give $100 handshakes to the players.

Like we'd probably have to annex Greene County to make room for ours.

That and their own school admits they took the tiger and the colors directly from Auburn.

It’s all very contrived.

At least their stadium name “Death Valley” is original

re: How do you feel about clemsons tombstone tradition
We also started the tradition in the 1980's of taking $2.00 bills on the the road to show the local merchants the economic impact Clemson fans make when we travel. When bowls had a little more flexibility in the selection, Clemson usually got a little better bowl because of the asses we put in the stands. Now it's just a fun tradition.

As for the tombstones, I'm on the fence about your suggestion. But this came up in a time when we were still not a national power. I don't like changing traditions so I'm fine with keeping it the same.

That has to be the worst tombstone. Went back and looked, exactly at number 25 in the first ranking.

The only original tradition Clemson has is the stamp on the money, which just screams "I just won powerball, but I'll be bankrupt in less than 5 years."

Then they have Mike on that graphic in their locker room or whatever.

Sad.

Is that where the saying "queer as a $2.00 bill comes from"?

Clemson is trashy and Dabo is a small, spherical turd.

A full marble tombstone for a top 10 win on the road feels like somethign you do when you don't win a lot of top 10 games on the road.

its a lot.
