    Gardner-Webb 79-69 Georgia Tech. Final.

    The losses to Tennessee-Knoxville, Northwestern, and St. John's didn't really bother me. I didn't expect to win those. This is embarrassing though.

    Rock bottom at this point in CJP’s tenure. Not sure if there’s enough talent to turn it around this season.

    Isn’t next year the last payments to Hewitt and Gregory?

    T-stan needs a meeting with Bosh, etc. to get some donations flowing.

    Would GT be the first school in history to be paying 4 coaches in the same sport? :lol2::facepalm:

    Looks like I made a good decision to watch Narcos Mexico tonight.

    We need a heart transplant.

    When the GWs, Wisc-GBs, and Furmans of the world are consistently better than you recruiting should not be the excuse.

    Getting old to watch every seasons hope end before we get to Xmas.

    If true this is a very bad omen. A coach worth a öööö should be able to get the personnel in to turn a college basketball program around in 3 years max. After two years, a bad team should be noticeably improved...either via personnel or the system. Sadly, the CJP era doesn't resemble either at this point in the process.

    We can still lose to KSU, our historical low water mark.

    We played selfishly. They played like a team that has been playing together for years, which their main starters have. We didn’t wake up and start playing defense until midway thru the second half. That’s a sure recipe for destruction. See Mercer vs Duke from the NCAA tourney a few years back.

    It’s not rock bottom unless we don’t learn our lesson and wake up. I believe our guys will be alive and ready to go next time around.

    Astonishing how bad the FG defense was this game, especially in light of our supposedly great FG defense this year. Was the team just taking an "off brand" opponent lightly? If so, that's an embarrassing failure for CJP. Motivating the team falls squarely in the coach's roundhouse.

    The most frustrating thing has been the lack of recruiting. We thought this cat was a relentless recruiter who would bring in talent like what we had under Hewitt. He started with a much better team than anticipated and an encouraging run to the NIT Championship game, then diddle after that. The worst part is that there is no future to look forward to since he hasn't recruited all that well. There has to be some reason for hope soon or fan enthusiasm with the BB program will be zero. Gardner Webb just got pushed to OT last week by Kennessaw State for crying out loud...

    Coppin st. was rock bottom and things haven't gotten better since. We had that little run thanks to okogie last season, but we don't have "that" guy this year.

    Inexcusable loss. The talent level on this team ranks with a handful of a few others as the least talented ACC team in history.

    Wow

    We lost to Gardner Webb?

    Pastner is close to the end, imo.
