From its auspicious start in 1896 to being on top of the college football world under Dabo Swinney, Clemson Football is one of the more colorful programs in all of college football. Learn how the program got its start in 1896 with a donation of land. Discover the beginning of the IPTAY program. Find out the origin of the Tiger paw and the tradition of the Clemson two-dollar bill. And, of course, get the backstage look at the “good ol’ fashioned hate” that makes the Clemson-Carolina rivalry such a passionate one. Author Will Vandervort provides a behind-the-scenes look at Clemson Football’s small beginnings to its current elite status as a three-time national champion and college football power under Swinney.
