Mark Richt is one of the last coaches one would expect to throw shade at another program, but that appears to be what thecoach did to on Thursday.
Richt was awarded a key to the city of Miami and used the opportunity to speak about how amazing the school and region are.
“It’s like no other place in America,” Richt said during his speech, as per. “Even in recruiting, we can sell things that no one else can sell. They can build all they want. They can have all they want. I mean, there’s schools building slides and playgrounds in their building, just so they can have fun. I said, ‘we’ve got the beach.’ We don’t have to build some slide to have fun.”
So where's the shade at Clemson? The Tigers recently unveiled a new $55-million facility for the football program including a basketball court, mini-golf course, and a slide.
While some Clemson fans may be a bit miffed at Richt’s comments, it’s tough to argue with a slide being more fun then living in South Beach.
