Default More talk on Will Wade and Clemson tweets...

Looks like they might be waiting on a Wade agreement before they decide on Brad through back channels. Read down and you will see more tweets:

This tells Brownell that they are looking to make a change. He would be crazy to stick around now and be a lame duck coach.

If South Carolina wins this game against Duke we have to let Brad go. We have to keep up with them with momentum.

Will deleted that thread by mistake. He was trying to just remove a post in that thread.

These tweets are not accurate.

That was my bad. It was an accident. I was trying to take out a comment by another poster and accidentally deleted the whole thing. i apologize for that.

So we aren't communicating with Wade through his agent?

Not going to share all of the information we don't want to share yet. But I will say that Clemson can't afford Wade. Lots of false "reporting" out there on Wade.

We have released a lot of information on what is happening with this situation. Much more than you will find anywhere else. We are holding a few things to ourselves for now and will release more later.

If it has been discussed that Clemson can't afford Wade, there have obviously been discussions about it.

We might could afford to pay a coach if we had more than 3000 people at the games. If you bring in a good coach, the fans will follow......f you keep a mediocre coach, the fans will stay away.

If Clemson can't afford Wade why did we build a 65 million building...again.

We should have just shut the doors if they aren't interested in making Clemson competitive in basketball.

I know this isn't happening.....but you are saying that if Billy Donovan came and said I will coach Clemson for $3 million/year. Clemson would say, "Sorry, we can't afford you"?

I'm sorry. I don't believe that for an instant. I agreed with above poster. You don't throw that kind of money into a facility upgrade and say we can't afford a good coach to bring in the talent and coach them up.

Robert, why would a beat writer for a school make this up? He has to have some info. even if it's through back channels.
Don't you think Clemson has to let Brad go now after SCU made the sweet-sixteen? We need good momentum as a program.

That is a very bold statement, and one that I disagree with. Clemson can absolutely afford to pay a basketball coach $2-$3 million per year. The real question is, is Clemson willing to?

I don't think money will be what keeps us from getting wade. I still think he comes. cant wait to see the buyout.

I don't think we're willing to give starting pay at $3 mil a year...not when we also have to pay Brownell.

I hope we aren't deciding to keep Brownell simply for money. There is a thing called opportunity cost. What will it cost us if we keep him?

I agree that if this athletic department isn't willing to bite the bullet to bring someone else in because of money then I will tell you this Tiger fan would be EXTREMELY disappointed and will let the administration know it big time as I think all Tiger fans should. I disagree that you make this move because of South Carolina beating Duke though. No other team should dictate what we do here at Clemson. There is smoke out there, no whether there is a full blown fire is another thing but there is smoke.
