More bad news on Clifford

It doesn't look like Dennis Clifford is going to save the season. The 7-footer continues to battle knee pain and the recovery from his surgeries is behind schedule

Prior to the season, I wanted Clifford to redshirt. I thought BC had enough depth to manage without him and that a full year off might help him finally get healthy. The redshirt would have helped roster balance too. 

Now that the season and Donahue's tenure are on the ropes, I really want Clifford to sit. Sure the team could use him, but by the time he is ready we could be in such a hole that his eligibility would all be wasted. Even in survival mode, I hope that Donahue and his staff consider Clifford's long-term potential when deciding how to manage him this season.

I hope we didn't mismanage Clifford medically.

I remember thinking they waited too long to operate on him. The poor guy may be limited going forward anyway - a 7 footer with two arthritic knees - not good.

Best of luck with your new coach next year, Dennis.

Clifford will never be the same unfortunately. Knee problems for 7' don't just go away.

Another hole that the next coach will have to fill.

I agree to RS him, balance out the scholarships a little more.

Let's be honest, this team needs a lot more than Dennis Clifford to save the season, and Danya Abrams, Sean Williams and Craig Smith aint' walking through that door.
