Was truly a legend in his own mind. Full of Theatrics and full of sh.. ! He recruited players but had NO DISCIPLINE at all.

Ellis coached at Clemson from 1984-1994, putting together a 177-128 (.580) record in his tenure. While at Clemson, Ellis led the Tigers to the 1990 Atlantic Coast Conference title, the only one in the school's history, with a 24-8 overall record, a 10-4 ACC mark and an appearance in the NCAA Tournament's Sweet 16.

Not to mention he is a friend of mine so screw you.

the ACC Tourney so we are not the ACC Champions for that year.


The conference champion is whoever wins the tourney.

look in their arena and see all of their “regular season champion” banners. People will say anything to diminish the achievements of that year.


Agreed. It was quite the accomplishment for us, irregardless

ACC tournament is about money, not the best team.

ACC Regular Season Champ is usually the best team. Unless the Regular season and tourney champ are the same, of course.

I have made a point to forget Ellis for the most part, but that UConn CF will live in infamy.


Nice man. But if you wanted to beat us under his tenure

And it’s about time the administration stopped tiptoeing around this issue and finally did something about it.

Cliff arguably the best bb coach we’ve ever had, but he recruited many of the best players we’ve ever had. He was also approachable and genuinely a good guy. He represented the University with class, unlike most on TNet.

I don’t understand why anyone would bash him...


He also coached in an ACC that was

the best it's ever been. Jordan, Worthy, Perkins, Bias, Sampson, Price, Dawkins, and on and on. I was at about every game back then. Remarkable basketball

Cliff also led us, Auburn, and Coastal to probation. Seems old Cliff had issues following the NCAA rules

Im sorry but Cliff just basically rolled out a ball and let them play. He was definitely NOT an X and O coach. Any discipline had to be handed down by the school-not Cliff. I'm not saying he is not a nice guy. He just is not a very good coach IMO.

the fact that he had some very good seasons on occasion. He recruited some of the best players in our history, including Horace Grant, Dale Davis, Elden Campbell, and Chris Whitney.

Unfortunately, he also had issues with the NCAA at Clemson, and also at Auburn and Coastal Carolina. Who knows whether those infractions were his doing or someone on his staff, but it's still inexcusable in my book. Our Sweet 16 run in 1990 no longer counts as a result.

I never said he was a bad coach. I acknowledged his successful seasons and some of the great recruits he signed. I also pointed out the negatives associated with his tenure.

You clearly have a problem with objectivity.

So, we went on probation 2 times during the Danny Ford era.

How does thy effect your opinion of him?


It lessens Ford’s legacy to some degree.

Again, who knows whether he knew anything about the violations or not, but it still occurred under his watch.

He did recruit Sharone Wright and Devin Gray. The violations revolved around Wayne Buckingham, and a lot of them were bull

to put it in perspective. Foster had Tree (who Tates Locke, cough, recruited) and Nance. He also recruited Horace and Harvey. Barnes had Buck and Jamison. OP had Trevor. Brownell KJ and JB
