Brownell Pros and Cons: What grade would you give him/why?

Pros: Pretty good defensive mind. Made the tournament one time during his last eight seasons and had a nice little run.

Cons: Horrible offensive mind. Not a good player developer. Made the tournament one time during his last eight seasons. Loves excuses. Not a great motivator. Very bland and boring brand of basketball that doesn't attract recruits at a school already in the shadow of NC.

Grade at his time at Clemson? C-

What say you?

Solid D. He had a fluke year with Gabe Devoe and Grantham hitting shots. Which allowed for a larger margin of error to go unnoticed. At the end if the day this game is all about offense. A good offense can overcome a good defense more often than the opposite. Which you are seeing this year

Grantham was not a good player. He would choke or quit against good teams plus he didn’t play but a little ove half the season

I will say, Grantham was one of the few players that really did develop here. He was having a great season last year before he got hurt and has been solid in the G League.

Grantham was shooting 40 plus percent from behind the arc, over 65 percent from the field averaging 16 points a game before he got hurt. He was the WV player of the year in HS who took awhile to get it together, but he did when it counted. PERSONALLY we need more Blossomgame type players who can jump and shoot. Very athletic. U can teach those kind of guys to play defense

What did he do against unc ?


Yes, a horrible player - so bad that he's in the NBA now.

You go to great lengths to complain and be negative, and don't even let facts get in your way!

F for this season. Never could teach Eli Thomas to play in control. Shelton Mitchell regressed. Sims regressed. Reed couldn’t handle pressure. None of the freshman were ever able to really contribute at any point in the season.

Career D.

Season: D -- we have so many players regress. No motivation to keep playing hard. Lack confidence to shoot well. Struggle defending 3.

Career here: C - most players don't develop. Lack of consistent offensive power. Rinse and repeat.


He gets an A+ in being a good guy.***

There's always one optimistic weazel ?????? well done Snow lol. Guys let's be honest the rest of the conference is recruiting at a high level 4 stars minimum at every position. We have been recruiting at a terrible low level. 3 star or bust. This year our freshmen have been busts. Brad is not a good evaluator of talent and I have always believed he flirts with going too much for defense first. So now you have guys he though knew defense but omg we forgot offense. This year has been such a disappointment and I'm not sure what will ever fix Clemson basketball. For guessing I'd say recruit a 7'4 guy for a change ??

Brownell compared to the entire history of Clemson basketball? A solid B-. We've never been the ACC doormat since he's been here (although we've lingered close at times). He wins just enough as compared to historical Clemson season win totals with the talent he's got.

As a recruiter, developer of talent, and personality? C-. Can't close out on a top-100 recruit here-or-there like previous coaches and when he does...doesn't have a consistent record of improving them. I've never heard one of our players say "I love playing for Coach Brownell. I'd put my body on the line for him." I don't know if his players love/respect him enough to buy in, and I think it hurts the team.

Solid guy and upholds all you'd hope for in a Clemson sports coach, but has consistently underperformed, underwhelmed, and runs a boring "offense" that is reliant on 3-point shooting.
