Would you keep Brad if he wins @ UNC next week?

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 9:26 AM

I'd keep him another season.

make him National Coach of the Year and our next President of the US.

You've got to be dreaming if you think this team has a prayer of beating UNC in Chapel Hill. We've never won a men's basketball game there and this year will be no different.

We would definitely have won a few games @CH over the years

Posted: Dec 25, 2015 6:33 PM

if we played with the same rules.


I'd probably sponsor him as a candidate for the RAG.

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 9:45 AM

I might even build him a house but it wouldn't be close to Clemson.

2019 orange level memberbadge-donor-05yr.jpg

Yes, I would. But that is not going to happen.

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 9:45 AM

At the beginning of the season, I was optimistic about the basketball team. I felt like BB was owed a season in the rebuilt John. Now, I believe he must go. Last night's performance was truly awful.

YES, Absolutely!!! .... and here's why.

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 9:46 AM

Some things just have to happen before there can be any SERIOUS TALK of Clemson becoming a LEGITIMATE basketball program

Breaking the streak in Chapel Hill is right up near the TOP of that list!

IF Brad does it (not holding my breath) then he buys himself another year ... period!

We already beat UNC in the ACCCG.


Posted: Dec 23, 2015 9:54 AM

That would secure another year without a doubt.

if Dabo went 4-7 every year but beat USuC would he still be our coach?

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 10:01 AM

Best is the standard. Getting lucky and beating one team one time is not success

That's a totally different conversation ...

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 6:17 PM

This is the situation ...

If you pretend to compete in a conference where you have to play a certain team regularly on their home court, and you have NEVER in over half a century, won a single game at their place, how can you ever expect to be taken seriously?

The question was not ... "Would you give Brad Brownell a long term extension if he beat UNC in Chapel Hill?" ... it was "Would it buy him another year?"

If (a huge if indeed!) BB were to break that streak that is a total and unbelievable embarrassment, he will have done something no Clemson basketball coach has ever done.

It's got nothing to do with football, or Dabo, or SCar ...

2019 white level memberbadge-donor-15yr.jpg

Right on.***

I'm keeping him for the rest of the season regardless

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 10:01 AM

I think you wreck it worse if you axe him now. Then you can see how the kids respond, or if they have quit on him.

Only way he's gone in season is a negotiated

Posted: Dec 24, 2015 8:55 AM

resignation with money going to him. I'd be OK with that

I agree, although I will be shocked if anything happens before the season is over.

Posted: Dec 24, 2015 9:57 AM

I think he deserves the rest of the season, but barring a miracle run, I support letting him go this March.

I would keep him under one condition only:

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 10:07 AM

What he does against UNC will not be the deciding factor.

If he has demonstrated, at the end of the season and after six years, that he has at least kept the program at the same level it was when he took it over. Even then it would be debatable, as it would men no improvement over that time.

That would mean we finish 7th or better in the ACC, AND make the NCAA tournament.

If he can't do that, I'd have him out of here so fast it would make your head spin. Why on earth would we keep a coach that is clearly taking the program in a downward direction by any objective, measurable standard?

Re: Would you keep Brad if he wins @ UNC next week?

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 10:33 AM

Yes, if he beats UNC this year, keep him and give him a $1,000,000 bonus. I'll be willing to pay the first $1,000 of that. I'm tired of hearing about "the Streak."


Re: Would you keep Brad if he wins @ UNC next week?

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 11:19 AM

No way, one game should not determine his body of work. He has failed. Now time to change leadership.

Honestly, no. Because it would mean that UNC lost that game

Posted: Dec 23, 2015 11:53 AM

not that Clemson won it. We have a horrible team this year and it would take nothing short of a miracle to win this game. It would only be a classic case of UNC overlooking us. But this streak will not die this year. I'd be willing to hinge a lot on that bet.

Is Brad going to bring me a unicorn?

Sorry, just thinking of other things that are never going to happen.

yes, and take a ride on my new flying pig!

Yes, and I would also agree to marry a leprechaun.

Odds are about the same for each.

Posted: Dec 24, 2015 7:57 AM

1 win and that's worth keeping him? I still would look at the entire season and his past seasons. That win would be meaningless to me. It would be a novelty because it broke the streak, but in the end just 1 game. It's about the season and past seasons.

Here's the key component to this whole argument, "who u gonna get?"

Posted: Dec 25, 2015 1:05 PM

If you're gonna get another unproven guy then save it. Brad always gets us up to speed by the kid year and we end up middle of the pack. Which is about what I expect us to be. So I say he's doing his job just fine. We can always go hire another guy just like him and be the same or worse OR we can actually throw some money at a guy who has proven to recruit well and be successful. But we have to expect whoever that successful guy is going to jump to a better job once we get good bc no one is ever going to stay here for the long haul.

So that's Clemson basketball in a nutshell. Either get a guy that keeps us middle of the pack like Brad usually does, or go get a home run guy and watch him leave at the height of his tenure. But the constant nagging is boring on this board.

The only reason Clemson is a stepping stone job is because we treat it as such.

Posted: Dec 25, 2015 8:03 PM

Pay for a top coach and support basketball like it is a high priority - meaning allowing him to have the staff and facilities he needs - and we can keep coaches around. Continue to treat it like an afterthought and we will continue to have marginal results.
