It should be reasonable to expect our basketball team to...

Finish in the top half of the ACC most every year. If we do that, we will usually make the NCAAs. If we do that, we should make the Sweet 16 on a a fairly regular basis. If we do that, we will eventually make a Final Four.

I can live with that scenario. I will also be perfectly happy with this season, if we just beat Auburn today!

I'm happy with our team's accomplishments, win or lose, but a win will be sweet, especially against another secheat team. This is a good Tiger team, and we are good even with our losing arguably our best player. Very proud of them!

We have not been able to achieve your stated goals in the first hundred years of our b-ball existence so stating it as a reasonable expectation seems unreasonable


For a goal to be reasonable, first it has to be ...

... an actual goal.

Winning at basketball has only recently become an actual goal at Clemson.

It all starts with recruiting.

Good players and coaches want to see nice facilities and a true commitment to the sport.

We've never done that until just very recently.

Finishing in the top half of the ACC is going to be incredibly hard every single year. Especially when you automatically have NC and Duke locking up 2 spots there every year and rounding out with whoever else in the most loaded conference in the NCAA. Is it a goal? Of course. Is it reasonable? Probably not.

It all depends on recruiting imo. I think everything else is done.

We've made the Sweet 16 3 times in our history, why is it

reasonable to expect us to make it regularly now? What has changed?


Recruiting, facilities, and brand.

I agree though that sweet 16's as expectations sounds like bit much. I think making the tournament 2 out of every 3 years could be realistic.

That sounds totally reasonable***

I would LOVE if Clemson became perennial contenders in the ACC and the Big Dance!

Let'm keep predicting us near the bottom; love that Underdog role we play and continue to exceed those expectations!

I can be proud of a team that competes ; It's when a team is good and W-t-f moments happen that really frustrate me as a fan
