    With exception of a few track athletes in the NCAA's and the huge conference tournament game in baseball with UNC coming up Friday, this year is just about done. I can't remember the overall program being this bad in a long time. Our new AD has a big hill to climb. Here are my grades:
    Football - C-; 5-6, 3rd in division, tied for 5th overall in conference, no bowl
    Men's Cross Country - C; 8th in ACC, 12th in South Regional
    Women's Cross Country - C-; 12th in ACC, 5th in South Regional
    Volleyball - D+; 13-18 overall, 10th in ACC
    Women's Basketball, C+; 20-14 overall, 10th in ACC, one win in ACC tourney, 3rd round NIT
    Men's Swimming and Diving - C; 9th in ACC
    Women's Swimming and Diving - C-; 1oth in ACC
    Men's Basketball, D+; 13-19; 13th in ACC, 6-12, 1st round tourney exit
    Men's Track - D; 13th in ACC
    Women's Track - D; 13th in ACC
    Baseball - C-; 31-26, 14-16 in ACC, 8th in ACC, 1st round tourney loss to Pitt, likely done for year
    Softball - C; 28-26 overall, 6th in conference, no NCAA bid
    Golf - A-; won 4 tournaments, ACC Champs, NCAA flameout in regional
    Men's Tennis - D+; 8-17 overall, 12th in ACC, got two wins in ACC tourney, no NCAA bid
    Women's Tennis - A+; 25-6 overall, 12-2 in conference, lost in ACC semis, lost in NCAA semis
    If all sports are equal - 1.93 GPA for 2017/2018; Counting Football as a 5 hour course, Basketball as a 4 hour course, Baseball as a three hour course, and everything else as a 2 hour, the GPA comes in at
    1.89. I think my grading was fair, bordering on too easy.

    sub .500 and missing a bowl should be an F for the football team.

    I was thinking solid D (for the pervs) but consider the way we lost several games at the last minute, maybe C- is appropriate. Could've been a B+ season.

    Clearly a nightmare for T.S. Season ticket sales for FB&BB could be a major problem this season.As a long time Tech fan, it's difficult to excited about this upcoming fall sports.

    With one, very notable, exception that proves there still is a God.

    This was an excellent and informative post - that details how bad sports are at Tech.

    How bad is it? By Danny Hall finishing 8th in the regular season ACC - he should be given a raise and contract extension - when compared to the other sports. Just shameful!!!!

    Men's Basketball should get an F - for losing at home to Grambling State.

    Look on the bright side - No sport finished 15th! Tech wasn't the worst at any one sport!!!!!!!!!!! YIPPEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (Then again many sports don't have all 15 schools participate - so Tech likely did finish dead last in a few sports.)

    CDH & CPJ should , at best, have a -D (at best) given how long they have been here.

    Seems like a lot of people think CJP should turn CBG shipwreck into something better in 2 years than what CPJ has done in 10 / 11 years.

    Hard to figure.

    Because annually it should be easier to recruit 2-3 basketball players to play in the ACC than to recruit 20-25 football players in the heart of the SEC.

    Among many other reasons.

    I know the AD is a football player and we are a football school, but if you want GT to compete in football, we have to get some GT hats back on rappers' heads. Basketball does that. Football recruiting will get better if we get good in basketball. If I was AD I would be putting the top priority on Basketball.

    I think we are close. I would not hesitate to spend more money on assistant coaches and recruiting to make it over the hump.

    Those ratios are true for every school, yet we always seem to be the school leaning on it for an excuse.

    The extension reason for the football HC ("can't recruit without a full 4 years, etc.) will have to be proven to show justification. Our best opponents don't use the length of our HC contract to recruit against us. They show them game film of our O & D. Very easy.

    And if our HC continues to focus on recruiting vs gsu/ elon and such, well the recruiting will be what it has been.

    And academics have nothing to do with it. I doubt the S/As recruited by gsu, elon, coastal carolina, troy, southern miss are all academic genius students.

    CPJ is often quoted about the 2 way street - they have to want and visit you too.

    Well, coach, that is also part of your job. Make them want to visit you

    First, it is a fact not an excuse.

    Your argument is literally "academics have nothing to do with it"? Well OK then. You and I are living entirely different realities.

    Fball is worse than C- and Softball in 1st yr is better than rating --from my view.

    Not this thread but my input was totally squashed like I was posting from an unapproved location. Total öööö and my post (pretty bad I admit) disappeared. The whole thing evaporated. Thanks a lot assholes.
