On Sunday we linked to a story about how the parents of a Clemson basketball walk-on were upset with coach Brad Brownell, accusing him of verbal abuse and of blaming this spring’s ACC Tournament loss to Miami on the scout team.

Clemson AD Dan Radakovich has responded, saying this:

“This is a circumstance that we took seriously when it was brought to us. Our administrative staff that is charged with that part of our organization looked into it and it was determined that there was no violation of a university code of conduct. Brad understands that there is a high standard and he works hard to meet that. I will tell you that over the last few months there has been a lot of pressure on our student-athletes and a lot of our coaches given the COVID requirements and the changes that they’ve had to go through.

“It doesn’t excuse any of that, but it’s a circumstance where our folks looked into it and Brad has had conversations with the student-athlete and our individuals have had a conversation with the parent and we are looking move forward.”

We only have one question: excuses any of what?
