The same fans complaining about

our basketball team are the ones who are nowhere to be found in LittleJohn come tipoff. That would be like not showing up to class and complaining about your bad grades.

Get behind this team and help them finish strong down the stretch! Stop with the negative comments, let's worry about getting the next game


Don't you worry about climbing the steep steps in Littlejohn

Some people don't like to hear the truth. Others don't try to please everyone all the time.

Clemson does not make me any less a fan of my alma mater. You can stuff that BS where the sun don't shine.

You can't possibly think you are a fan of a team if you are not willing to drive multiple hours to a 9:00 game on a Tuesday night.

Good luck filling Death Valley with fans who live only in Clemson, Greenville, and Seneca.


Your comment is no different than saying you can't be a Clemson baseball fan if you don't make it to watch them play PC on a random Tuesday night.

Not saying OP is right/you're wrong, but why is that the comparison you went with?

LJC is 1/10 the size of DV.

I guess you are new to sports. There's a reason why attendance is down when teams aren't good. They will just watch at home on TV at most. Moreover, most Clemson fans on here complaining don't live near LJ. Anyway, there is a reason why attendance is low for the Orioles, Miami Marlins, Chicago White Sox, Cincy Bengals, Raiders, Tampa Bucs, New Jersey Nets, Atlanta Hawks, Phoenix Suns, and Minnesota Timberwolves. They all pretty much suck. People aren't stupid. It usually directly correlates will the product.

Not to mention lackluster attendance to begin this season, coming off the Sweet 16 campaign.

Have you priced tickets for Littlejohn lately? Some of us just can't afford more than one trip a year to watch the team play.
You can get behind the team all you want, but you don't put the ball in the basket, you don't turn the ball over on what would be a game-winning drive,you don't miss 4 free throws in the last 30 seconds to win a game,you don't allow the other team to drive to the basket for a game winner, you don't play well for 39 minutes,and they seem to forget it's a 40 minute contest. You don't get worn down because you can't match the other team's depth.
That falls on the coaching, not the team. I don't care how full Littlejohn is but if you can't field a team that can compete with those teams not named Duke, UNC or Virginia, you could fill up Littlejohn, Doug Kingsmore, and Death Valley and it wouldn't matter.
And those aren't negative comments. That's the state of Clemson Basketball,period.

Tickets are $20-30 for Saturday's game against BC through Clemson.

Not sure if you realize, but there are not only 3 good teams in the ACC.

So using your logic, only people in the Clemson area are allowed to complain? A lot of us live out of state and it is hard to make weekday sporting events. Also, what if we see the team on the road? Do we still have to toe the "Everything is Roses, because it's Clemson" line?

Never did I say the fans lost the game for us. But they sure didn't help.

The dumbest argument ever made is that "fan support" is the end all be all to great teams. It's really Econ 101. Make good product, people buy product; make bad product you lose your business. Your way of viewing it isn't in the realm of reality. Women's basketball is the perfect example. Nobody went to women's games but now that Coach Butler is turning the program around you're starting to see more and more people there. Amazing how that works. You ask any coach or player and they will tell you they have to give the fans a reason to be there, period. There's a difference between loyalty and blind loyalty. As a fan base there is only one way to truly show your displeasure and that is hitting a athletic department where it hurts and that is the wallet. Me personally I wish fans would boycott the whole NCAA especially in basketball and quit going and watching and maybe we'll quit getting recruits bought right out from under us. Someone with morals and standards is never going to out recruit someone who has none. So until that happens I really don't know that it matters what Clemson does at the head coaching position and thats friggin sad.

And same old Brownell groupies for whatever reason. Apparently, you have never been involved with corporate America. This is a business, a big business and the boss is held accountable be it good or be it bad. You do not continue to pay him big bucks just cause you like him or he is a good guy or he is a Clemson Man! He is paid for results and he is paid to win. The players are well paid with full schollys so they too are accountable for their actions. Clemson has become a " Best is Standard" school and we as fans should expect nothing but the best! The best ain't Brownell!

We pay him "big bucks" because he helped us get to a sweet 16 last year. Not because we just like him. This is college athletics not "corporate America" so don't even try to make that comparison


he was being paid big bucks before last year***
