I hope Brownell can recruit because he sure can't coach.
Brownell has to go. This guy would get out coached in a church league game. Ask yourself this, game after game this season Clemson has come down to the last minute with a chance to win and what has happened? They loose. If it were once in a while I could accept it, but this is every stinking game.
Brownell appears to be the Ken Hatfield of Basketball. I don't care if he resigns, quits, walks away or gets fired but this guy has got to go.
All these numbers are crap if you don't have a "D". The game was won against LSU because the defense finally played great football.
Brownell needs to go! This team is awful and the style of basketball they play is just hard to watch. Please don't tell me it is because they are young. If they were good enough to get recruited to a division 1 college program they should at least know how to shoot a basketball. Jennings is a senior and he was 2 of 12, the team shot 32% and this is the story every game.
Getting beat by S.C. State by double digits. Really?!! Isn't it time to do away with womens basketball and start softball? My goodness...S.C.State? I must agree with Bigboots, if you can't play good, at least look good. Recruit beauty queens.
I don't think Morris is ready, Brent has only been here 1 year so I really don't know. I do know that they are the 2 highest paid coord. in the country and they better think twice before leaving Clemson for any head coaching job. Remember,"The grass is always greener over the septic tank."
I agree with Kiper's comments on Boyd and Hopkins. I need to know if he is kidding about Logan Thomas of VT. Sure he is big and athletic, but he stinks as a quarterback. Apparently Mr. Kiper did not watch any of his games this year. He had wide open receivers in the FSU game and was missing them by 5 yards. At least Tim Tebow was good in college.
This team can't throw it in the ocean off the pier. It may be time to get some juco transfers that can SCORE. We just don't have any shooters.
Well if he coaches at Auburn like he did at Clemson, everyone in the country will soon know you can throw on Auburn.
Congrats Tajh! You earned it.
Dadgum, you people are hard. The team just finished the regular season with a 10-2 record. Just a couple of years back they had a loosing record. Has everyone forgot that? The D has been awful for the last 2 years. Give Venables time and lets see what he can do. As for Dabo and Morris, you need to leave them alone, they seem to know their jobs. I remember previous coaches and their records. Do I like loosing to Carolina? HECK NO! Didn't Dabo and Morris team up to win an ACC Championship last year. I wonder if the Alabama people wanted to fire Saban and his staff after they lost to Texas A&M, or wss the Old Ball Sack on the hot seat after the LSU and Fla. games. Next time some of you feel like you can call plays better than the coaches and know the players and their capabilities better just send Dabo your resume. I'm sure he would love to have a student, a car salesman or a fry cook giving him coaching advice.
After watching this past weekends head to head matchups with ACC teams and SEC teams, I think the arguement is moot. The ACC Championship game will be a battle to see who is the tallest midget. The whole conference has to get better not just our Tigers.
It is easy to blame the coaches, the conference or the schedule but the fact is we got beat by a better team. Both of Clemson's losses this year were to better teams. So now everyone should know what they need to work on to get better.
The "Old Ball Sack" is an idiot. Leave it at that.
Ditto to all the above statements. The way our D is playing right now, our only hope is to continue to score 40 or more points a game. If something is not figured out about the secondary and how to tackle by Nov. 24 we may be looking at another Orange Bowl type beating.
I think Furman will stick right with Clemson with neither side giving an inch...Then they will kickoff and Clemson will crush them.
Good job Coach. I think Dabo knows that if this team looses to AU or anybody else, it will not be because of the offense. As long as the quarterback play is good this offense will click.
I agree that this team feels more like 8-4. Also, I thought UGA won the SEC East last year. If USC won the East why didn't they play in the championship game? The main concern they better have is a running quarterback in the SEC. Running quarterbacks and dogs that chase cars don't last too long.
We can't get them all. Maybe the kid just wants to get away from home, move on to greener pastures. He will just have to learn, there is no place like home and the grass is always greener over the septic tank. I still wish him luck in whatever he chooses.
This young man should be an inspiration for the entire athletic department. Anytime a coach or a team is having a bad game or a tough practice, this MAN can explain what a bad day really is. I'm proud he chose Clemson.
I hope that is not true. Verbal committments can change their minds. Once you have a signed letter, then you can cherrypick.
Did I read this correctly? TDP wants to spend 5.1 million on a practice facility? Where is this money coming from? We are in a RECESSION. Is this why the tuition I pay for my son keeps going up? I this why my IPTAY dues are high? Why can't they practice at Little John? If the roof dosn't leak, keep the light bulbs changed and the floor swept and roll them a ball out and say start playing.
It is probably for the best. After reading his coach's comments, if the student is anything like the teacher, he would fail out of Clemson in one semester.
Great article and comments. It is a fact that if any school goes undefeated in conference play and undefeated in non-conference games they will be in the mix for a national title shot. However, these non conference games can't be against "Jerry's Kids" or "The School for Unwed Mothers". Thats where a 9 game conference schedule becomes hard.
Should be a quick weekend. This year, I don't think we can beat Coastal or USC in tournament play. Prove me wrong boys... Go Tigers!
I don't think going out to Lubbuck, Texas is as stupid as going to Syracuse, NY and Pittsburg, Pa..
Until the ACC gets new leadership, football will continue to be an afterthought. Basketball and the NC schools is what the ACC is all about. If Football was a primary concern, why was Syracuse asked to join the conference? It certainly wasn't their location or football RPI. The conference should have gone with West Va., East Carolina or South Florida. These schools are located in the traditional ACC region and all three's practice squads could beat the mud out of Syracuse starters.
Maybe they should be happy with any regional. "To be the man you got to beat the man", don't strive to get in some regional with weak teams. After losses to Presbyterian and Western Carolina our boys have proven they can be beaten by bad teams. If we have got to loose I would rather loose to a Stanford than "Jerry's Kids".
I'm sure Dabo will do what he feels is the right thing. We, however, this includes the writer of the article, should not rush to judgement. Since Watkins was arrested, let the legal system do its job. His punishment should be based on the outcome of the investigation. Does he have a medical problem? Why did he have drugs for ADHD without a prescription? Who did the pills and the pot belong too? Did he test positive for taking any of this stuff? Was the person in the car with him free of any blame? Lets get a few more answers before we crucify Watkins or Dabo. Remember, giving part of a story is good only if you are running for public office.
Brownell needs to find the best looking, best dressing and fastest talking used car salesman in the southeast. Maybe this guy could sell Clemson Basketball. The great players always go to the big name schools ie N.C.,Duke,Ky etc.. Everyone should know all the head coaches in the ACC are good, so it is not as much about the X's and O's as it is the Jimmy's and Joe's.
I must agree with mitchtiger. If pitching staff has a 6.92 era, you better pound out 17 and 18 hits per game if you want to win. I like the tiger team and hope they go undefeated the rest of the way, but they need to start recruiting pitchers instead of throwers. A 90mph fastball does not mean wins if you can't change speeds and locate.
This team has a lot of potential, however potential dosn't win games. The pitching has got to come around. It seems like every game they loose there is one inning that they give 5 or 6 runs and its over.
I guess since Gov. Haley made all state agencies answer the phone, "Its a great day in South Carolina" that means the recession is over and there is no more unemployment, crime or domestic issues to worry about. Now our lawmakers can concern themselves with important issues, like football. My sympathies to the people of Lexington County.
The Orange Bowl performance was certainly something to be ashamed of, however it was one game in a conference championship season. What we should be ashamed of is the mentality of some of these alleged Clemson fans. I hope recruits don't read this and think all Tiger fans and Alumni are ignorant. First conference championship in 20 years, another nationally ranked recruiting class but get beaten in the OB and its time to fire the coach. REALLY? Please read your comments before you post them.
Change has to be made. When you have a month to get ready for a team and you give up 70...Enough said. This was the 14th game of the season and people still don't know how to play their position?
Call me and I will help move him to Knoxville. He won't even have to touch a box.
Before Clemson looses to much money they should look at sueing ESPN for moving the game to 8:30 on a Wednesday night. Not many fans can take off 2 or 3 days from work the week after Christmas and fly to Miami. This game should have been played on a weekend and you would have sold tickets.
Every year I hear the same thing, our "O" line is weak. Do we not recruit linemen? If we do, what positions were they playing in highschool? If it was "O" line, why are we recruiting them if they can't block? If they can block in high school why can't they block in college, are they not being coached? No matter, they are still better that the defense.
The gamecocks should be eating this up, they chewed our butts off Saturday. What are the answers? How do you go from 8-0 to awful? I am the first to admit, if you offered me 9-3 before the season started, I would have jumped on it. The end of this season has been a disaster. To loose 3 out of 4 is bad, but we should have lost to Wake and Maryland. Changes must be made.
I hope they can find a spark. The last four game the Tigers are averageing 18 points a game. The REAL problem is the defense is giving up 32. If the offense can overcome that difference, it will be a flame not a spark.
After watching the last four Clemson games I would say the modle will be 42-10 Va. Tech.
I agree with you IBDM1, all three of the teams play defense like South Carolina. If I am correct they are giving about 33 points a game. Please stick to posting comments in Turds and Feathers.
A move to the SEC would be wonderful from a monitary basis only. For fans to get excited about watching our Tiger teams compete in this conference, I think would be a humbleing experience. It has been 20 years since the last ACC title in football, baseball team could compete for the most part. The Basketball team has never won an ACC title or a game at UNC. Think they would fare better at Kentucky? Unless it is just about money, show we can win in the ACC then move if something is offered.
Wow, you graduate a first round draft pick quarterback and your team is still the overall favorite. Thats impressive. Clemson will be young and unproven at quarterback, the D-line and at linebacker and they are picked to finish 2nd behind FSU. In all seriousness, this league must really be down this year.
If you were in Dabo's position you might feel like he does. If he dosn't win he looses his job. That may make you change your point of view. I don't have a problem with a 2.0 as long as the kid can pass while he is there and get a degree. As for the kid whith the 3.5, he or she will get some scholarship monies, but do they bring in the millions of dollars the football dumba#$ does with the 2.0.
I hope I am wrong, but the TSN article maybe right. This years team will be young for the most part and who knows how that will translate into wins or losses. Dabo has got to be one of the nations best recruiters, but can he coach? Who knows? He took Tommy's team to an ACC Championship game and went 6-7 the nest year. I do wish him the best. Baseball is always going to get hit hard by the draft. Good players get picked. Also, most of Clemson's players are out of state students and I would guess 95% of them are not on full scholarship. So the question is should I get paid to play baseball in the pros or cost my family and stay in school. Answer is...recruit more instate boys. Tanner owns the state as far as recruiting goes.
