Photo: Look at Clemson's Ridiculous Slide

Clemson football built a ridiculous slide and Twitter roasted it.

According to The Washington Post, 48 schools in the five wealthiest college conferences increased athletic facility spending 89% from 2004 to 2014.

That trend continued into 2015, when Clemson announced a $55 million "village" for its football team.

Because these schools are broke and not actually making any money off football teams, it's set to include a golf simulator, laser tag, an outdoor pavilion for fires and barbecues, a mini-golf course, a lounge with pool and ping-pong, as well as the standard gym and practice fields.

But perhaps most importantly for current and future Clemson players, this village will also include a slide. But not just any slide. A slide fit for a baggage claim conveyer belt.

Yes, apparently a slide was the decisive factor for the "most fun football ops facility in the country." There are few things in life that grown men love more than a 20-foot slide which somehow looks worse than the atrocious mockup.

But naturally, the haters on Twitter couldn't understand this.

(That sound you hear is Clemson fans rushing to Well, Actually him about their one national title won over 30 years ago.) 

The facility opens Jan. 26th.

Clemson players should get there early. They're clearly expecting long lines for the slide.
