Two 20 win seasons in a row. I say his goal should be make it 3 next year. Consistency sells recruits. We need to consistently be in the post season. Whatever it takes. Clemson needs to land that big name recruit. Dabo did that with CJ Spiller. He changed the program by taking a chance on Clemson. We haven't had that in basketball period. We are in the backyard of Duke and UNC. We need one kid to take that chance on us.

Getting to either the NCAA or the NIT is useless if you can't beat teams that you are suppose to beat, and you should never be behind the entire game that you should win, but lose!!! Sorry guys, I feel I have over stayed my stand with Brad over these long hard miserable seasons singing that same sad song that Brownell will turn our BB program around. I was dead wrong, he won't and he can't by taking the exact same road year in and year out. I'm over standing on Brownell's side preaching that he is the right coach to turn our BB program around, I was wrong and Brownell is wrong for Clemson BB if winning is what we want for our program!!!

In all honesty, if we would have made the tourney this year then he would deserve next year.

Lots of flukey things happen to Brad's teams. You gotta admit he's been really close. But then again, there's a clear trend of losing close games (for a myriad of reasons), so it doesn't seem that will ever change.

Ultimately close is not enough. I too think its time. The program needs new energy and direction.

However, I think DRAD will give him one more year to show what he can do with his "facilities" recruits. In reality, I dont think it will be a sign DRAD doesn't care. He does.

a program that has no intentions of being any more than a lower tier ACC team that makes the Tournament once every 8 years or so.

He should have been fired three years ago. Fans are starting to realize that if the administration doesn't care and won't allocate the necessary resources or hire a good overall coach, then why should they care? The ambivalence continues to grow. Every fan isn't a Clemson grad that has no choice. As it grows and people find other outlets for their time and attention, it gets harder and harder to bring them back. Waiting another year to upgrade the program when we all know the odds of an NCAA Tournament appearance is basically zero is poor management.

I know it fits the narrative that Brad is a horrible coach, but we are not close to being a lower tier ACC team under him. Our average finish in the conference during his 9 years here is 7.4.

That is clearly a middle of the pack team in the ACC.

7.4 is in the middle. That's terrible right? It is way better than our historical average and way better than we deserve based on our investment in the program. Yes we pay CBB a good salary and yes we repaired LJ after it had been condemned. As we learned from football, investment is more than the facility you play in and the HC's salary. It is about staff, their salaries and player facilities. It is about the slide, the PAW bistro, nap rooms, rehab equipment, technology and analytics...

It is one million and one little things we do for football but not for basketball.

We have issues working against the program which are the reason we have not been a great program in forever Unless we open the bank and get a big deal coach the program will not be what you desire and I see no indication the Admin is willing to open their wallet to that extent. Firing CBB and hiring some other assistant or mid major guy hoping for better results is absolutely not the answer.

I would say the majority of our basketball fan base, who is not a Clemson grad, are football fans who pull for the basketball/baseball teams by default. Not all of them, but most. If you're a homer for one thing, why not all things?

My perspective is different, I graduated from Clemson, but living in GA has proven the homer trend mentioned above. I have a hard time understanding this at times, but whatev!

On the other hand, they're probably the first to jump ship when things go south, unless they identify as "a true fan."

If DRAD is ever going to make a move to upgrade the basketball program, now is the time. Judging by past performance and the loss of 4 starters, next year will be a bubble NIT season at best. Keeping BB around will be writing off next year, might as well get a new coach in and start building something, too many seasons have been written off around here already.

We’ll keep him for one more year. Which gives us time to really consider a good candidate and what it will take to get him here.

Next year will be a tough year for our men’s basketball program. So I’m actually for keeping Brownell for one more year.

Mar 26, 2019, 9:32 AM

Yes, we made the tournament 2 years ago but we took a huge step back this year arguably with a better team. When a coach is getting wildly inconsistent performances out of his teams, that says to me that he hasn't done a good job of instilling a winning culture in the program. DRad needs to ask himself if he's OK with Men's Basketball being mediocre. If he is, then by all means keep Brownell. If not, it's time to go in a different direction because we've had almost 10 years of evidence that mediocre is all we'll ever get out of Brownell.

Re: I just don't see any justification for keeping him

A huge step back?

We were -2 in conference and -4.5 overall, that is not a major step back. That is normal season-to-season flux.

This team wasn't better. We lack point producing ability beyond Reed.

The team could have outright quit after a 1-5 start but we muscled back and finished league play 8-4.

Mar 26, 2019, 1:30 PM

from sophomores Amir Simms and Clyde Trapp and the addition of junior Javan White. That is 7 Brownell players that should have developed and formed the nucleus of an NCAA Tournament team and built upon last season. Coach Brownell, D. Radakovich and a whole lot of people were counting on this being a better year and the year that would show continued improvement and generate enthusiasm among the fan base. We entered this season ranked in the Top 25 and picked to finish 6th in the ACC. Losing one perimeter shooter and defensive liability shouldn't have cause such a regression in performance, and nobody expected that it would. We sacrificed two years of transfers sitting out to build towards this year.

Each year Coach B and his supporters have suggested that we would be better by subtraction as we traded less talented players for the more talented recent recruits and transfers. Unfortunately, this year marked the beginning of a downward trend that will likely fall even farther next year and last a few more years.

If it ends up being a miserable year in Year 10, then Coach Brownell will need to wear that record and own it. Then the decision should be easy for DRad and likely 95% of the fanbase (we all know who the 5% will be) will be behind the decision and we can move forward united.

DRad has supported Brownell probably more than any other basketball coach that has ever been at Clemson......including a major renovation/investment in Littlejohn and a contract extension and nice raise after last season......but you want to blame everybody and everything for Clemson’s lack of success except BB........not all those close losses this season were BB’s fault....but at least half of them clearly were his fault.....it is his responsibility to have his guys in the right positions and play calls and that is why it is called coaching........and his coaching ability (or lack thereof) was really exposed which resulted in losses in at least 3 or 4 games we should have won this season......Go Tigers!!!!!

Re: I don't have any connection to him.

[4]
Mar 26, 2019, 11:11 AM

I get what you are saying about having guys in the right position being the coach's responsibility.

However, my lasting impressions of this season include: missing free throws that would have sealed a win at NC State, having a chance to beat maybe the best team in the NCAA tournament in UNC at the end of the game, a no call on the floor that allowed NC State to get a shooting foul 1 second later in the ACC tourney, and our guys repeatedly missing layups vs Wichita State.

Specifically the Wichita State game after everyone spent the last week trashing Brownell's ability to put us in the right spot to win.

Eli Thomas got a point blank shot, down 3, with just under a minute to play on an inbound play. He missed, but I'm not sure how Brownell can put us in a better position there.

We missed layups that entire game and yet the narrative after was that Brownell couldn't get it done.

It's not like he was setting up an offense to get open 3's that we couldn't make.

Brownell was running plays and we were getting shots inside the lane that the team could not make.

Maybe this was the only time the team let him down, but I'm guessing that it wasn't.

If you want to say that Brownell needs to be on the hot seat because of lack of recruiting, I will hear it.

If you want to say he has trouble putting us in position to win, then I'm having trouble agreeing based on what I remember from the season.

We all agree that Clemson wasn’t quite as good as we expected them to be and now, when we lose the starting point guard, we can’t understand why they aren’t playing great! With a 100% Mitchell we would not be having this discussion. If you had known prior to the season that Mitchell would be hurt and not play as he did the previous year, would you still expect the Tigers to be a highly ranked team all season? Depth is not one of the high points of Tiger basketball. Putting five good players on the court at one time has been a problem for many years ..... including this one. The team that finished last season losing to Kansas was NOT the same team you saw play Witchia State!

Re: I don't have any connection to him.


Mar 27, 2019, 1:42 PM

The away game at NC State I put mostly on Brownell. Calling to foul the inbounds player with over 9 seconds left and the lead, goes against game theory. Everyone knows at the end of the game if you are winning, the clock is your friend, let it run. You do not allow your opponent to score with the clock not running. Stoppping the clock for foul shots is what the losing team does. We gave NC State 2 possessions when they logically could have only had 1. Yes we missed FTs but we are looking at the coach's actions here. It was a huge coaching mistake whether we won or lost that game.
And the worst part to me was the complete lack of taking responsibility in the obvious mistake. A little of "my bad" would have gone a long way.
The other game I think of is the Nebraska game where we played lackluster until the last few minutes. We should have won that game. That loss showed we had an obvious leadership and 3 point shooting deficit this year.
As to recruiting, everyone knew DaVoe was leaving last year. Everyone knows you can't beat good ACC teams w/o solid 3 point shooting. Other teams can recruit shooters, where was our 3 point shooter recruiting?
I'm not calling for him to be fired. But he is not above criticism.

Brownell is ultimately responsible

[2]
Mar 26, 2019, 12:12 PM

for the program's success. I've never stated nor implied otherwise.

However, it's ignorant to try to simplify the argument down to "he's the coach, he's responsible" without looking at things in context of our basketball history, support from the administration/fans, and what our peers are doing.

From my perspective, the fact that we easily beat almost all of the teams we were supposed to, and narrowly lost to almost all of the teams we weren't supposed to beat, shows that Brownell gets a lot out of his players. I don't understand how you can blame the coach when our team narrowly loses a game against a more talented team. Rather, it should be viewed as a very good coaching job to develop our players and get them to compete to the point that we have a chance at the end to win such games.

In my opinion, the outcome in close games when the coach puts players in position to win falls mostly on the players. Did they make plays or didn't they?

The bottom line is that we need better players. Our problem isn't player development or Xs and Os, it's recruiting. Why would a recruit choose Clemson over other schools with a much better basketball tradition, as good or better facilities, as good or better fan support, and better administrative support? If you're expecting Brownell or any coach to somehow convince recruits to come to Clemson in spite of that, and do so legally, then you're living in a fantasy world.

Again, Brad is responsible for recruiting, but are we honestly giving him enough resources to recruit the kind of players we need to get us from mid-back to upper tier in the ACC? I don't think so.

There is absolutely zero parallel between Brownell and

[3]
Mar 26, 2019, 1:01 PM

Tommy Bowden, other than they both can say they held head coaching jobs at Clemson.

Brad Brownell didn't come to Clemson with his mother's ### still in his mouth. He hasn't publicly flirted with other schools to get a better deal from Clemson. He doesn't make excuses, he calls things pretty much they way they happen, as he did after the Wich St game. He didn't get the Clemson job on the coattails of a subordinate coach who was the one really responsible for any success he enjoyed.

Brad Brownell came to a major football school w/ a huge love for baseball, as well, to try to coach a men's basketball team who's best previous coaches also struggled to succeed. All of this while trying
to do it without being investigated or accused of cheating.

Tommy Bowden came to a school where football was king even in the throes of mediocrity and while he succeeded in improving facilities and hired Dabo (not even Bowden knew exactly what he had in Dabo), he couldn't get past the mediocrity on the field. ####, it took him 5 years to realize you have to recruit offensive linemen.

Brownell may not be the best basketball coach in the country, or even close, but comparing him to Bowden is an insult.

I think Brad is going to be safe after the meeting, but if DRad puts Brad under the expectations need to be better next season, Brad might get frustrated and will either look for something else, or be disgruntled and a mural parting may occur.

We will see...

Look at it this way. Brownell has only 1 year less at Clemson than Tony Bennett has at UVA. One program is soaring and one is floundering. Yes, UVA has a better BB tradition and probably a bigger budget, but I think it’s hard to argue there’s not a huge difference in the quality of coaching. Who wants to argue that swapping coaches right now, even with no other changes at Clemson would not be an instant improvement?

UVA spends twice as much on basketball as we do.

Plus, they play in an arena, built in 2005, that cost $170 million in today's dollars.

We just spent $65 million renovating Littlejohn, which was supposed to be a rebuild but turned into a facelift instead.

Yes, you are absolutely right about UVA having a better basketball history than us.

Won’t admit that Bennett is a far better coach?

Brownell is NOT Bowden. Bowden ran stupid plays anyone could see would not work. Our opponents knew what O plays we would run by how we lined up. Bowden lost games when we obviously were the more talented team. Brownell keeps us in games when we are overmatched.

Brownell is not above criticism, but he is not Bowden.

DRad and Brad could do a mural of the history of Clemson basketball. Brad's era would of course be in the middle

I knew extending his contract was a mistake

Now there a larger buyout dollars attached to getting him out of town. He basically went against the “Clemson way” to build a team worthy of a NCAA run. Juco & grad transfers are usually something we don’t do. Brownell saw the writing on the wall. It was win, or leave. He had only been to the dance on Purnells players. He only went last year on the strength of transfers. Not recruiting high school kids. I’ve kept my mouth shut this year. I knew the run into the NIT wouldn’t last long. Brad thinks championships are won through defense. I haven’t seen that recipe work anywhere. Offense first, with Brads style of defense wins championships. You can’t go 7-12 minutes without scoring the basketball. He’s weak on fundamentals. It used to be free throws. At least that’s cleaned up! It’s time to find a Dabo in a basketball coach! It can be done. At any school. Why not Clemson?! We did it in football. I dreamt of football being this since the 70’s. The 80’s were great. But, the 80’s can’t touch what Dabo has done! We can have that in basketball also!
