administration is unwilling.

The local media-coach relationship at places like Clemson will always be lopsided. The local media need to stay on coaches' good sides in order to get them to give the boring soundbites that we then consume as though they're breaking news. If the local media express an opinion that is contrarian, ask tough (albeit obvious) questions, or get to the bottom of real issues, they get blackballed by coaches, and the cozy relationship between WCCP/Tigernet/other outlets and Clemson athletics gets strained. The local media can't afford that. Unfortunately, the national media don't care about Clemson basketball coaching (they barely care about Clemson football even with all the success we've had).

The WCCP relationship is especially interesting. The WCCP employee list and the Clemson radio employee list is inextricable. And Walt, who usually tells it like it is, won't tell the truth on the Brownell issue for some reason.

When administrators are unwilling to make coaching changes, only fans have the power to make it happen by being vocal about their opinions, and not going to games; or if they go to games, they have to be vocal about the issue there.

Are we talking about real fans (alumni)

If pigs are so smart, why do 66% of them use weak and inferior materials during construction?

all fans to not go to basketball games, voice their displeasure, etc. Not everyone had the opportunity to go to Clemson, but I am happy that people can still be fans.
