Brad Brownell [29]
Posted: Mar 18, 2013 4:16 PM

Anyone who is calling for Coach Brownell's job is just not paying attention or doesn't know anything about basketball.
He has been here for two full recruiting cycles, and look at the players he has added. KJ McDaniels took off this year and will be better next year. Devin Coleman will be a big plus next year when he is back. Rod Hall got better and Sullivan will next year with more playing time.
This year's freshman class was solid, mostly Roper, who is going to be a stud when he gets a little bigger and stronger and more experience.
And the players we're adding, Blossomgame, Rooks and Ajukwa, will contribute what we didn't have this year: scoring and shooting.
This year's team had zero senior leadership. Booker played well and hard but he's not a born leader, and This Being Milt offered nothing in that department and not much else in his play.
Purnell had a good run but he shut down on the program, both in recruiting (we won't have any seniors next year for a reason) and academically. And the program is paying the price for that now. Brownell deserves patience and anyone who is calling for his job is way off base.
