    We're under 2 weeks away from first pitch, and it's time for the third annual GT preseason pole. In 2017, 61% of us (myself included) thought we'd make the regionals. We ended up with our first losing season in decades and at #75 in the RPI..In 2018, another majority correctly predicted us to miss out on regionals.

    Some media has high hopes for 2019 - while we're unranked in the d1baseball and Baseball America preseason poll, we're #17 in Collegiate Baseball and College Baseball Daily's preseason rankings. What say you?

    I only really keep up with football. And they blow.

    I'll say we make the regionals as a 2 seed.

    Yea, the GT Baseball Facebook account is talking about being the 3rd ranked team in the ACC coastal in a preseason poll like it's a positive thing. I prefer my teams to have higher expectations for themselves.

    My two favorite teams are TECH and whoever's playing Georgia.
    For 2019, I predict a 13-17 finish in ACC play, and a 9th seed in the ACC tournament, with losses in both ACC tourney games for 5th year in a row...no regional for 3rd year in a row, and 4th time in last five years...also, Tech will be swept by the dawgs for the 3rd straight year...

    The 13-17 ACC, 9th seed ACC finish is based on Tech's actual record for the last seven years. Pitiful really. Sadly, I've decided not to renew my season tickets this year for the first time in 25 years until a change is made...

    Sounds like a voice of realism to me. Those would be the results you expect if you extrapolate the last few seasons to this one.
