@ Duke, @ Syr, UVA. Not making excuses but a lot of teams

would be 0 - 3 during that stretch.


When the schedule came out, I anticipated

a 1-5 start. I also thought we’d only drop 1 in pre-conf schedule though and the Reed injury may have cost us one of the 3 losses there. My hope was we’d then win the next 4 ACC games after the start to get us to .500 at 5-5 for the final 8 games. We have not played well enough yet to make it look like that will happen. The losses have been worse than expected. It was frustrating to see so many “layups” missed today.

My disappointment is I thought this team would be better. With what they had coming back and basically losing one guy in Gabe you had to like the chances. I know they lost Grantham as well but he didn't play the whole conference season last year anyways. This team has struggled to beat lower level teams. I haven't been a Brownell supporter, I just haven't. Even last season while it was wonderful was only one season. I am willing to get aboard the Brownell pulled wagon but I said after last season he would have to prove it to me again. With the guys they had coming back I thought it'd be easy to do. I'm not saying firing him is the answer but as it stands this team isn't a tourney team and with what came back that is saying a lot. I know college basketball is corrupt and the NCAA is a joke but Clemson basketball should be better and it's just frustrating they're not. Now either get a coach who can bring top guys in or open the wallet and bring a guy in like a Bennett who just has a winning system because Virginia doesn't recruit studs they just have a system that works and guys who work well within that system.


I didn’t necessarily think we’d be better. I was

Hoping we’d be about the same and the falloff from Gabe’s spot would be made up by the other 4 stepping up and Gabe’s replacement taking more of a role. With no “new”guys starting I thought we could hold the same level of play. I knew that wouldn’t translate to equal or more wins based on schedule and how deep the ACC is this year. Also realizing we won the tight games we had lost the year prior. So far, we haven’t been competitive for a full game in any of the 3 losses and there are no breathers this year in the ACC. Almost every other team is better- some significantly which was going to make it a challenge to begin wit.

Sometimes seniors are harder to coach than freshmen. Reminds me of when Blossomgame came back and expectations were so high. It was a year when expectations were not met. Now with the starters back from a Sweet 16 team you expect a high level of performance. It just ain't there. I think they'll improve but Reed might be the only decent three point shooter. In today's ACC that won't get it done. Mitchell can make a difference if he could start shooting better.

We will probably lose 2 out of the next 3 too.

Agreed. It’s just that we look so bad during it. Not giving up hope yet. Eventually we’ll get hot and maybe win one or two we wouldn’t think we would.

Yeah, but you are not going to do well against any real team if you only make

2 3-pointers in three games combined.


Maybe so but this team is Senior laden and returned

a core group of starters. NO EXCUSE for them to look this bad.
