Clemson basketball, what to say...

that last 2-4 possessions were just unreal. Simms BARELY missed that pass after the steal. Brownell needs to go. It’s time. Down by 9 with 5 to go against a team that has won 9 games is just, well, ludicrous.

I feel bad for Simms. I really do.

I've been half jokingly texting my friends with #firebrad since the season before the sweet 16 run/fluke. I get that we probably won't get much better but Jesus, I'd rather suck and be exciting than this. Brad is a good dude but give me high pressure and athletes all day. We need shooters who say, "Make it rain biznitches" and then hammer down dunks on the ####### of Duke and UNC while some knuckledragger 7footer throws elbows in the lane all-damn-day! Give me scandals and rings. ####, if UNCheat, Bama and o310 can do this #### and not get caught #whynotus?!

#firehisazzalready
#notfnaround
#fireBRAD!!

Seriously tho, one and done? this sucks

Just an FYI...I go look at your web site from time to time to see what you're up to. Looks like you're doing well, but I still say 'ShoelessCU Gets A Haircut' is your best work.

I went to the Rick Barnes camp

Mar 10, 2021, 7:23 PM

For two years and absolutely loved his interaction with everyone and how he would talk to us all. I of course was a Clemson fan already, but that solidified the deal.

I also went to the Carolina Basketball Camp for two years and both were the last of the Dean Smith era. He was a good dude and he also spoke with us, but not with the same attitude as Barnes. I fell in love with Clemson basketball after those camps. Will never turn back.

I do think he could have been the Dabo for basketball

[2]
Mar 11, 2021, 7:28 AM

but he went the greener pastures route. Cannot really blame him. Dabo did not have that opportunity.

Someday we might find another diamond in the rough who will want to make Clemson basketball great.

Probably not though.

But we should not quit trying.

"Greener pastures". That's extremely diplomatic of you.

I love Barnes as much as any coach we've had in my lifetime, but I suspect he might still be here if he'd invested in a chastity belt.

Destined to be mired in perpetual mediocrity, at best. It’s like UVA football or any Coot sports... having any expectations at all is the problem.

I like you, but don’t you ever ever ever

compare Clemson Basketball to ANYTHING Gamecocks have accomplished. If I see you do this again, we will fight behind some STI Porta Potties.

I want to see that lol. You two wouldn't fight.............

it would be a drinking contest.

But yeah never compare us to USuC.

Good teams always have scorers. Kids who can shoot the ball

Mar 10, 2021, 8:15 PM

when it counts. Just good old natural born shooters. All of that strategy and motion and sets and defensive intensity and whatever else might keep you in a game. But I've never seen a really good team that didn't have some shooters. Seems like we seldom have those kinda guys...

I think a coach with a few plays more than just

"get open" on offense would be a really nice start.

Unfortunate as it seems, Brad does juuuuuuuuuut enough

to keep his job. The real downer is that my answer to that is here in my own back yard. Pat Kelsey at Winthrop has elevated the Eagles back to being the best basketball program in the state of SC. The guy is the total package as a coach, and some power 5 school is going to scoop him up soon enough. Gregg Marshall might have turned out to be a nut job, but the fact remains he had Winthrop as the best basketball school in the state during his tenure, got the big offer and then had Wichita State on the map.

That said...I wonder how our team this year would fair in tournament with these teams...

I'm guessing NOT in the final 4 if this mythical tournament were actually played.

It sure seems that way, and it's maddening.

It's like Tommy Bowden all over again.

You have Dabo over here saying "best is the standard", but feels like the D-Rad standard for basketball coaches is "could be worse".

At least his contract is no longer in the top 30 in pay.***

He should be making SOCON level money. Maybe we can have a clause that deducts $1,000 for every point that the team loses by. No recoup for wins.

Miami was playing with only 6 scholarship players. And just played a game the day before. So, you know they were tired. We have NO EXCUSE. FIRE WILHELM!!!!!

Our super deep roster of fresh legs couldn't stop THREE

guys. I think we got beat by 40 points in the paint. THAT is unfathomable and unacceptable. I'll give Miami this much though...Jim Larrañaga is an excellent coach and if that team had not been decimated with injuries this year, we would not have been the 5 seed.

you think D-Rad should narrow the search down to candidates with a tilde N in their name? Tharealdonjuan, GITT.

It might be nice to have a coach that can slap a roof on Littlejohn and fix tacos for the concession stands while still coaching at a Brownellesque level.

OK FINE. I admit it. This is MY FAULT.

The last Prowl and Growl I went to, I got Dabo's autograph on a schedule poster. I also had a basketball schedule in my hand as I moved on from Dabo towards Brownlee. I swear he was almost leaning towards me as if to be preparing to sign my hoops schedule, as I politely walked by him. I always felt a little bad about that. He is paying be back with his "coaching."

My bad.
