Darn. If he's not already, I hope Milton gets back on the

road to rejoin the team in the very, very near future.

In the meantime, this is an excellent opportunity for some of the young folks to step up and make a case for more playing time.

Who is this space alien that you call coach Brad Brownell, and what are these foreign concepts that he is spewing? Accountability? Discipline? Madness!!!

oops, you did say winning. My bad, same result

Kudos to Coach Brownell

Posted: Feb 3, 2012 3:18 PM

you can have short term success with no discipline but you'll never have sustained success without it....good on him. This sends a message to the young players too....we may not be a basketball power, but ######, you want to wear the Tiger Paw, you're going to do the right things on and off the court. Coach Brownell is struggling trying to get the program over the hump but he sure as #### ain't compromising principles to do it. He'll win....just a matter of time. Dabo is following suit too. We'll get the right type of kids into both programs and we'll be talking regular NCAA tourneys soon on the court and national championships in football....


McDonalds AA?

I never saw how he achieved that unless it was against the bad SC high school teams


Milt actually played against some top high school and AAU

Posted: Feb 4, 2012 12:14 PM

Competition ... St. Benedict's Prep (NJ), Oak Hill Academy, Gonzaga (DC), St. John's (DC), Christ School (NC). I watched him more than hold his own against Tiny Gallon on ESPN although his team got whipped by Oak Hill pretty good. Milt was clearly one of the top 50 players in his high school class.

A couple things about the McDonald's AA designation: They don't just go out and name the top 30 college prospects and divide them between the east and west teams. If that were the case, John Wall would have been a McDonalds AA that year (he wasn't). If there are perceived issues with your character or academics, McDonalds simply will not share their corporate image with you. The Jordan All-Star game is much more of a collection of the very highest prospects - Jennings was not invited (and Wall was of course). The purpose of the McDonalds AA is to reward high school achievement on and off the court. Many recipients achieve at the highest levels after high school, but it is not designed solely to be a predictor of future success in the same way that the Jordan game is.

We have had our own mixed bag with McDonald's AAs at Clemson - Sharone Wright went to the NBA after three years, Michael Brown was a problem child from day one and to my knowledge never completed his eligibility or played professionally. Ricky Jones and the late Clarke Bynum were great guys who had trouble winning or keeping a starting position at Clemson. If I had to rank the on-court contributions of McDonalds AAs at Clemson, it would be: (1) Wright (2) Jennings so far (3) Brown (4) Jones and (5) Bynum. That said, I was at Clemson with Bynum and Jones - they were both great guys and Bynum later became a national hero. Their basketball careers at Clemson were big disappointments but they were very popular on campus. They were also fortunate that there were no internet boards so they didn't have to read a bunch of junk posted by old, fat guys who couldn't make an uncontested layup in front of 10,000 people.

Ya have to give it to Milt!

He probably goes down as the most OVERRATED player to
ever play at CLEMSON.


Not at all

Posted: Feb 4, 2012 3:56 PM

Have you followed Clemson basketball long?

Jennings has already started more games, scored more points, collected more rebounds, and blocked more shots than two other McDonalds All Americans were able to accomplish in four years at Clemson.

Milt doesn't even appear to be the most overrated player in his recruiting class - Noel Johnson was a consensus Top 50 player when he arrived at Clemson who now plays 2 minutes a game for a fairly untalented Auburn team.

Who are these other mcdonald aa you speak of because Jennings is the highest recruit ever for Clemson BB

Re:Coach Brownell, Way to go!

Posted: Feb 3, 2012 3:26 PM

We have a high character coach who takes no S#^$ and it IS a privilege to play for Clemson. Earn it.
I like it!

Lots of respect for Brownell. I for one think he will be

successful here at Clemson, and I'm proud of the way he's building the program. Perfect fit for us.

I think Milt will come back stronger than before. He responded pretty well before when he got out of line.
