Clemson was #1 briefly under Barnes when I was in college

Clemson has had some good years of basketball but has never sustained it, unfortunately. They had a good team in 1990 but lost a heartbreaker in the sweet 16 to UConn.

I wasn’t surprised Clemson lost to FSU on the road, but I was annoyed that they blew an 18 point lead….

That is a frustrating way to lose, and we had another injury. We need to put that behind us and be ready for Duke this weekend.

Wasn’t surprised we lost to Duke…We had it tied in the last few minutes but, but when you foul a guy shooting the 3-pointer and giving him 3 free throws late was the beginning of the end of this game….


With 4 games left, they need to win out to keep a high seed…no worse than 2-2..All 4 teams on the schedule at beatable.

A good showing in the ACC tourney would be helpful too.

I wasn’t surprised either, but it’s good to get those when you have a shot. I agree on the rest of the season.

UNC has won 6 straight games. Their offense is really clicking. They will not repeat, but can go pretty deep. It is getting down to crunch time as teams work to make or position themselves for the tournament. UNC May play themselves into a 2 seed.

Can Clemson vacate all wins in Chapel Hill for punishment in this FBI probe?

Clemson on what, 3 game losing streak?  Didn’t I say this?  Slide to end the year.

UNC’s part involves a total of $300 between two players, both of which they say was after they declared for draft, which makes it a nonviolation.. sorry, no dice.

This isn’t the typical “slide”..they do have 2 starters out.  One should be back this weekend

Duke lost to VT. If UNC wins Tuesday they are assured double bye. If they beat Duke they are 2 seed. UVa really beat the snot out of the ACC this season. They might have a season for the ages.

Would you like to revise that comment?  LOL…Great win over FSU.  First time winning 11 ACC Games.

Oh did we win?  I just saw a lot of complaining on Tnet early and didn’t pay attention after that.

Tnet should always be consumed in moderation.  They tend to be a very manic lot.

I actually have no TV currently hooked up if you can believe that.  Just the PC.  So I don’t even happen across Clemson basketball.
