No, our coaches aren't stupid. That said, [1]
Posted: Dec 28, 2013 2:28 PM
 

Brownell is a bit out of his element in the ACC. He never played basketball at a high level either in high school or in college. When he coached at UNC-W and Wright State, he may have coached against high-level talent 5 or 6 times a year. If his teams played solid defense and disciplined on offense, he had a shot in those handful of games that mattered. He doesn't seem to appreciate how much that had changed when he landed at Clemson (and how much more it is about to change with Syracuse, Pitt, Notre Dame, and Louisville arriving on the scene).

Brownell's fixation with a slow-it-down, make-each-shot-count approach to offense was borne out of necessity. Most of the players he coached at his previous schools simply weren't very good. Not one of them was good enough to play in the ACC. That may seem obvious, but Brownell does not see this. The kid from TN who had been a Wright State commit is the perfect example of Brownell's naïveté. It never should have crossed his mind to bring him to Clemson. Coleman and Filer were two of Brownell's recruits who were ACC caliber players. One is gone, the other likely.

Personally...

Umm, WHAT??! A psuedo-starter?? This is not good
nkickha Dec 28, 2013 12:54 PM
totally agree, can't be good for a team desparately seeking.
Prime T. Tiger Dec 28, 2013 2:37 PM
Not cool
Tigerstyle Dec 28, 2013 1:03 PM
Hopefully, we can get a raw, athletic, defensive specialist
Smiling Tiger® Dec 28, 2013 1:24 PM
His name is Gabe DeVoe***
striperfan Dec 28, 2013 2:47 PM
I hope he is the real deal.***
Smiling Tiger® Dec 28, 2013 2:59 PM
Hope you are right but there is little doubt that

Been known for months, he'd be the one transfering

Let's see to where he transfers, then we can pass judgment.
CUTiger1989® Dec 28, 2013 1:25 PM
Most likely a mid-level Philly school like Drexel, Rider
striperfan Dec 28, 2013 2:52 PM
He will star for any of those schools and be back home
OldSchool Tiger® Dec 28, 2013 3:52 PM
Brownell has had 3 prior transfers
striperfan Dec 28, 2013 9:48 PM
This is the most sensible response in here***

Nope. He has a really good +/- in most games, but didn't

Most of his minutes were against low-mid majors

Backcourt has been crowded...
tiger B Dec 28, 2013 2:39 PM
Why leave now? He will sit next year and only play 1
Tiger_Fan_007® Dec 28, 2013 3:25 PM
He has plenty of eligibility. 1.5 years without medical
OldSchool Tiger® Dec 28, 2013 3:47 PM
Best of luck, Devin. You will be missed. The ACC

iTiger Dec 28, 2013 10:58 PM
