Orange Bowl 2012: Clemson Tigers Arrive In Miami In Style

The Clemson Tigers have arrived in Miami for the 2012 Orange Bowl to play the West Virginia Mountaineers. Upon arrival, they were treated with the classiest of carpets. The orange carpet.

"That’s when you really know you achieved something in life, when you get to walk on the carpet,’’ 6-6, 255-pound senior defensive end Kourtnei Brown said.

The team was also greated by two buses, each wrapped with a photograph of coach Dabo Swinney and his Tigers.

"That’s a big bus! Golly!’’ said amazed cornerback Coty Sensabaugh, a senior from Kingsport, Tenn.

The Tigers sure are excited to be in the Orange Bowl. Unfortunately, not too many of theirs and West Virginia's fans are following suit. Between the two schools, around 15,000 game tickets remain unsold.
