Tee Higgins talks The Opening, Clemson, and basketball

My goodness our basketball coach needs to get on the phone. Seriously do those sports overlap? Can he play both?

Brownell needs to give him a call. It's not like they have to use a basketball scholarship anyway.

He didn't really play both--he came out, practiced, and tried to help the basketball team, but Coach Brownell wasn't having any part of that. DH didn't even see the floor! Coach B must have thought his guys were MUCH BETTER than DH...HA! even Stevie Wonder could see that wasn't true...

Playing both football and basketball effectively in college

... is almost impossible in this day and time.

The two sports have overlapping seasons to begin with. They require very different types of conditioning. And last but not least, both sports pretty much require a year-round commitment at schools with championship aspirations.

I know Nuk Hopkins was a great high school basketball player, and he probably could have done alright if he'd stayed with it at Clemson. But, then I think there's a good chance he never becomes the college or the NFL football star he is today if he had divided his attention in college.

Just my opinion ...

I agree with you and you have to have buy in from both sets of coaches, but the. I think of Charlie Ward. He's probably the most obvious and successful example of someone playing both well at this level.

And we saw Julius Peppers play both for North Carolina and

do well. So there are (or at least there were) exceptions.

Things have become so much more specialized over the past 15-20 years.

Stan Rome was an outstanding basketball player

And I think the seasons overlapped more back then. Stan went pro in football but I thought he was perhaps a better basketball player - just not as many opportunities in the NBA.
Also Bruce Ellington at USuC did quite well in both sports.


There are definitely exceptions, especially back in the day

We had Mike Eppley as our starting QB and our starting PG in the early 1980s ...

I don't think

Rome played football until basketball was over with.

Eppley however did play both sports


Jarman played both sports I think

Rod Hall should have


Someone please get Brownlee to pick up the phone

If he can't make us good at basketball, you'd at least think he'd help us land a football stud.


Esp. since he is skating on thin ice with Tiger fans anyway!

By the way did Blossingame get an agent? If not would he be willing to come back to Clemson or did Brownlee throw him under the bus, by stating that "He is not a type of player that can bring us back when we are down (not good on 1:1)?????

I do think the basketball team could use him.

Come on, Coach Brownell, give us a little help here.
