Curious to everyone’s thoughts on this from former walk-in’s dad:

All I saw was some candy butt father complaining that you don't humiliate young men. I agree but you don't baby them either. If Dad needs to fight his battles for him then maybe Dad babied him too much from the start.

Dad certainly had plenty of hashtags in that post.

I doubt this is true. Those things seem to personal and hate filled. He doesn't come across the Bobby Knight type to me.

Maybe Clemson needs a Bobby Knight type. Is Knight still above ground?

I believe it.

It’s not good at all. But it seems like Brad will get away with it.

I wish I could see CBB getting that fired up about anything. That seems highly out of character for him.

if i had a dollar for every time i got cussed at on the practice field or during a game. It happens. The comments on Facebook are great too. You’d think Brownell beat the kid up and took his lunch money.

Same here. But IF this is all true...it sounds a little different to me.

The threats to ruin the kids’ future with terrible references.

I don’t like the apparent disdain of walk-ons in the program either.

Ruin a kids future? Tell me how brownell ruined the kids future you over-dramatic pansy.

If anyone “ruined someone’s future” it was his dad that made this public. You are deranged and have TBS

LMAO. So the brownell bashers go from, “he has no fire, no passion, doesn’t care enough, and a dull personality” to “he is too passionate, had too much fire, is not dull, and an #######” anything to disparage brownell.

What a pansy of a kid and father to be honest. Grow the #### up. Nobody is threatening his future by calling him a lazy #######

My thoughts are that I feel bad for the kid.

While I am sure his Father loves his kid and thought he was doing the right thing. Unfortunately, his actions are wrong on so many levels.

D1 Basketball in the premier basketball conference in the country is not Rec League T-ball. Coaches will say mean things to players sometimes. He didn’t put his hands on any of the players. The player is a young adult he can either fight his own battles or chose to no longer dedicate his time and energy to a basketball program that does not appreciate him. Is this Dad going to go to his Boss at his first job if it sucks too? Being on the basketball team requires a huge time commitment for the kid, it might not be with it. This is not a six year olds piano lessons or making the junior high team and being upset about playing time and wanting to quit. If a person is in an abusive relationship and leaves, are they a “quitter”.

Expecting that he can just show up and talk to the Coach or the AD without an appointment or calling ahead of time is a terrible expectation. Comparing it to citizens being able to show up at a City Council Meeting is an insult to the intelligence of any reasonable person who wasted 45 minutes watching the video. To expect the Basketball Coach or AD to meet with the parent of a walkon while preparing to leave for the NCAA tournament is ridiculous.

I was impressed by the way the campus police handled the situation and the fact that they were alerted. Particularly since he was armed. He was complying with the law with regard to keeping the weapon in the glove box or console but they did the right thing by asking.

I am not sure what the Dad thought he was accomplishing by putting the video on Facebook. Brownell will no longer be employed by Clemson when the administration gets tired of mediocre basketball not because he was mean to the walkons.

I feel sorry for O’Neil McBride. Future employers may not hire him for an unfair and stupid reason. Not because Brad Brownell said he was lazy, but because a Potential Employer may be a Clemson fan who saw this would not want the potential headache of this Helicopter Parent of a Young Adult being their headache at some point. Just like it is not difficult to replace a basketball walkon, there are also a lot kids coming out of college every year.

I wish the kid the best of luck, I hope his Fathers misguided “help” won’t hurt him.
