FAIR WEATHER NATURE BOY?
Call it a “double diss …”
On the same day the nation’s No. 1 high school football recruit Rashan Gary chose the University of Michigan over Clemson University – another Palmetto State school got dissed in favor of the Wolverines.
We’re referring to “Nature Boy” Ric Flair – a devotee of the University of South Carolina program during the heyday of former head coach Steve Spurrier.
“Coach Spurrier left the Gamecocks,” Flair told a crowd at Michigan’s signing day celebration. “So I’m right here, and I’m ‘Blue,’ baby. I can’t stand Ohio State. I got no time for Michigan State.”
“To be the man you gotta beat the man,” the 66-year-old wrestling legend added. “Right now, moving forward, Michigan is the man.”
While these two programs are certainly on divergent trajectories at the moment, let’s not forget what happened the last time Michigan and South Carolina met on the gridiron.
So take that, fair weather “Nature Boy.”
