Clemson University is located on the western tip of South Carolina in Clemson. The university was founded in 1889 as an agricultural military academy. Clemson didn't become a civilian co-ed university until 1955. Horace Grant, Brian Dawkins, Jim Speros, Strum Thurmond, and Lee Brice all attended Clemson, though their most cherished alum is probably Robert H. Brooks (yeah the guy who founded Hooters).
Clemson fans are big in spending $2 bills at away games.
It's the same as it was 30 years ago, said George Bennett, the founder of the $2 bill tradition.
Mr. Bennett said he began the $2 bill strategy when Georgia Tech decided to stop its series of games against Clemson. Clemson fans wanted to show Atlanta businessmen how big an economic mistake that would be.
So if someone painted Clemson Orange hands you a tiger paw stamped $2 bill this week let him/her know that the 70's are over and everyone uses debit cards now.
This week we are going to have a little southern dish that really has nothing to do with the west side of South Carolina, but you never need a really good reason to eat cedar planked shrimp and grits.
