Best of luck to Coach Simmons. He takes a lot of flak on here, but I've never questioned his effort or integrity. Hope he's successful.

Nothing but best wishes for Coach Simmons and appreciation for all of his dedication and hard work with the UE program and all of the young men that he affected in a positive way. Go Tigers!

I actually already have a Clemson sweatshirt. I would wear it as often as I could after the 2017 Championship game, around all these "Roll Tide" folks down here on the panhandle.
Now, I'll have a reason to wear it more often.
Best of Luck, in South Carolina, to Coach Simmons & Family.

go orange & regalia...…(although, I still prefer purple)

Unless I missed it, Sore Loser Simmons still hasn't said a parting word to the fans he pretended to love in his prepared remarks at every hoopfest. He said that the fans are what makes UE special. Sure, bla bla bla. Ignoring the UE fans on the way out the door he'll now say that the fans are what makes Clemson special. His script is as old as his offense. His tenure at UE was an empty hole. I care as much about Clemson as I did before they hired him. Not at all.

"Orange and Purple just got a little more exciting", Blake Simmons.

I couldn't agree more. I suspect neither Clemson nor UE will bring the ball past half court and just stand there watching 15 seconds of sideways movement.

Article in Greenville News this am says, "Simmons Apparently Hired as Clemson bball asst.". Brownell quoted that he cannot confirm because the "process is not complete." I don't doubt that Marty will go to Clemson, but he's in a lesser role there that doesn't include the authority to make announcements for the Ath. Dept. Maybe it's no big deal at all, but if I'm Brownell, and there are other pieces that need to fall into place (like an asst. leaving the program, etc.), a family announcement could put me in an uncomfortable spot. If Marty were still head coach, would he have appreciated a new asst. leaking ahead of the university?
