    Huh? This was a fun game to watch. We battled back to take the lead at the half. We were down 4 with 8 min to go (I think – something like that). We finally hit some shots and made some good plays. Weirdly, I think our faltering defense was the bigger problem tonight – and of course all the turnovers. Seems like it's been years since 20+ turnover games weren't the norm.

    Ok nothing was fun about this at all. And nothing has been fun for the last 15 years except for one tournament appearance.

    Just finished working out, enjoyed getting big cried for saying I wouldn't watch then watch the big cryer whine about ööööty play. Tis Tech hoops! Hey Josh Pastner said it himself, we just need some luck to land a stud player to turn this thing around. Luck! I actually still enjoy watching this öööö show, but didn't feel like getting annoyed about basketball tonight.

    I hate to say it but we need to keep Pastner until we can afford to hire a good coach. We can not afford to hire another mediocre coach to save money.

    öööö off coit. I'm as happy as I've ever been in my life. I'm engaged and have a 7 month old. Brand new cottage for really cheap, and in the woods only a couple doors from grandparents. Work is great, side job is great, and everything else for that matter.

    The reality is I want GT basketball to be successful, and it hurts my soul to deal with this for 15 years. It also hurts my soul to see PC culture taking over and Liberals running the country into the ground. Those things I emphatically discuss on here, really the only outlet I use for this kind of communication.

    I also don't see how my posting style has changed in 10 years. Onlineathens literally did a profile on southendzonebee and his awful posts about Georgia football 7 years ago.

    And I alone am the reason for the profanity filter. If anything I've toned It down a Bit.

    Apparently, from your posts, you don’t understand that short of a scandal, Pastner is here until 2021 based upon gettting out from under the Hewitt and Gregory buyouts. GT ain’t paying 3 guys to not coach here and would have little left over to hire a new staff with. Can’t inagine that TStan could rally the donors to foot that bill.

    As my post states, I am now reconciled to that sad reality. I hope I am wrong but it looks like we will continue to be a non-factor for at least three more years. There are now 100 NCAA and NIT bids. Yet we will miss out for the second straight season and we are not trending upward.

    Oh, feel free to do your thing against the Dwags. Just don’t come here and whine when we actually played a decent game. VT shot lights out in 2nd half or we win that game.

    Decent game my mothers ööööing asshole. We played like goddamn garbage against a faker of a top-25 team that we should have demolished twice now. Awful performance all the way around, from shooting, rebounding, and coaching. Who in their right mind would call that a decently played game by GT? Turnovers galore in awful situations, holding the ball for a full shot clock and not even realizing it is going off, miss after miss after miss after miss under the rim, CJP literally laughing and obviously not into the game at all. This is pathetic. It has been pathetic for a while, but this is my breaking point in THIS season.

    We played like absolute dogshit the entire game and the coaching staff should be embarrassed. I'm not going to blame our SA's anymore than I did in the previous paragraph. They don't deserve to be called out by name, but CJP deserves all of the hell he is getting.

    We only had 13 turnovers, and several of those occurred late when we were presssing. We average over 16 in ACC play.

    We shot over 40% overall and from 3 pt. Highest we’ve had in awhile.

    VT shot 59% in the 2nd half. And while we may have had some defensive lapses, you aren’t going to beat anyone shooting at that rate.

    Get your stupid stats out of my face. We did not watch the same game obviously. Coit we are benching early regulars and playing a rando euro kid who had 20 acc minutes all year before last night. This team has absolutely NOTHING good about it other than James Banks missing every shot he takes under the basket.

    Dude, wtf do you think we are doing at this point in the season? If you were coach, would you be negative towards your players or positive at this point? If you were coach, would your priority be winning or player development at this point?

    I assume you are referring to me. Show me where I whined about ööööty play? Everything I posted in this thread was a fact based on the results of the game.

    For instance, Alvarez couldn't have been any worse because he was something like 0 for 8 at that point of the game. He scored a couple of buckets late in the game but was again struggling to hit any kind of shot. And we consistently go for stretches of 4 and 5 minutes without scoring in every game. Those are just facts.

    That being said, we led at the half, and cut a 10 point 2nd half deficit to a single bucket around midway through. Then VT went on a tear. I saw a lot of good in this game.
