    GTMBB offseason thread

    If I were Josh Pastner, other than shaving my sideburns, here is what I would be doing to improve the GTMBB team over the summer: Goals: Improve shooting and overall conditioning. Also, all these men will be getting more minutes in a GT game than before and must learn game tendancies. Kyle...

    March Madnesss memories

    A thread that might end up being totallly fun. My favorite March Madnesss memory was in the New Orleans Superdome to see Michael Jordan hit a 15-foot jumper to beat Georgetown. All along Bourbon St Caroliina fans chanting, "What the hell's a Hoya?" My only other memory is seeing us lose to...

    Retiring as a mod

    I am retiring/quitting/(taking a sabbatical) as a mod on the GTSwarm board. Some of you will say good riddance and I can understand that feeling. My reasons are multiple, but primarily I felt I was having friction with people on board that I like. I wasn't enjoying the discourse as much. I was...

    Lorela Cubaj

    I am starting this thread because I believe the most dominating athlete to ever wear white & gold should have a Swarm thread that has nothing but her name. She leads the nation in rebounding. She leads the nation in assist to turnover ratio. She might be the best defensive player in the nation...

    Moses saw his first NBA action for the Clippers last night. I don't think it will otherwise be a memory. He played the final minute & a half and logged an assist.

    NCAA Basketball

    I am starting this thread to post about teams/games not involving GT or other ACC teams. Start with Gonzaga v. UCLA on ESPN tonight. The game doesn't air until 10 PM so you probably should set your DVR to record it. These two are both 5-0 and ranked #1 and #2. A rematch of the NCAAT Final Four game.

    Literature vs Engineering

    While I agree with you, have you read 100 Years of Solitude or Absalom, Absalom or Ulysses? Those novels do not prepare you for a specific career, but they enable your thought processes. From the view point of history, have you read the multi-volume books by Shelby Foote or Julius Caesar? If...

    Surfside building collapse

    Question for one of you structural engineers. Given how long it's been since the oceanfront portion of the building fell, and the nervousness about the remaining portion, wouldn't it be better to bring down the rest now? You know it's coming down eventually. No one is ever going to live in that...

    Watching the Hawks wearing the MLK logo on their uniforms today, I wonder if GT could benefit from copying, at some level, that idea. Thoughts?
