Clemson's athletic teams have been nicknamed the Tigers since the late 1800s. In the 1970s, mascot Zach Mills began the tradition of doing push-ups after every score equal to the number of points Clemson had in the game. Mills performed 287 push-ups, a record that was later eclipsed by Ricky Capps, who performed 465 push-ups in a victory over Wake Forest. The tradition is now commonly emulated by other college mascots.
