Clemson homecoming, game with friend Brownell 'special' for Barnes

Former Clemson coach Rick Barnes says the Tigers "can never find a better basketball coach than Brad Brownell" after his first game back in Littlejohn since 1998. Full Story »



Barnes Homecoming...

I’ve got to admit, seeing the picture of Rick Barnes and the caption of “Clemson Homecoming” got me really excited until I read the article and realized he wasn’t hired to coach our basketball team. :(

Barnes did a fantastic job while here, lifting the Tigers to a lofty #3 ranking IN THE COUNTRY!! Now that his kids are grown, I wonder what it would take to get him back coaching the Tigers again?

Jeez... why can't folks just be happy we make the NIT'S 2 out of every 3 years? So selfish.??

Barnes has the hands of an accountant. I shook it once.

He was a flash-in-the-pan. Had us at number four, briefly, then we fell off. And he left town. Not loyal to Clemson at all. And what'd he do at Texas that was really memorable? With the best budget, facilities in the country, and with pretty good tradition to back him?


Barnes at Texas? NCAAs 16 of 17 years, one final four,

three elite eights, 5 sweet 16s. Accomplished more at Texas than any coach before him or since.

What did he do at Texas?

Seriously?!?

-Made NCAA Tournament 16 of his 17 seasons
-Won nearly 70% of his games
-Made a Final Four, two Elite Eights, and two Sweet Sixteens
-Coached two Naismith Award winners

I think Rick Barnes was a class A jerk in the way he left Clemson, but personal feelings aside, he is a great basketball coach who was very successful at Texas.

Brad Brownell: all-time winningest coach in Clemson men's basketball history, and only coach to beat North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Maybe SC isn't the worst but definitely in a slugfest at the bottom.

But Ricks concerns ring hollow because his kids went to

... went to RC Edwards and Daniel HS, among the best in the state and on a par with good schools nationwide.

Dissing “South Carolina” schools as an excuse on his way out was disingenuous for sure.

I guess it sounds better to say your wife is making you switch jobs because of the school district, rather than...

I did like his style of BBall. Always had some monster thugs under the basket to rough folks up. Sort of like guard-center-guard instead of forward-center-forward. Plus, he nearly got into a fist fight every time we played Dean Smith, so that was a plus in my book too.


***football type guard-center-guard that is***

could we please rename the coliseum the Barnes-Brownell arena??? And let's make it a tradition to lose 7 #### games in a row at some point every season!

was going to be in Littlejohn for the first time since he betrayed our program. I would have given another thought to going to that game just to boo him, if I'd realized it.
