    2022-2023 Roster

    After the draft and transfer deadline, here's where I think we are. A total roster between 41 and 48 players (4 signees and 3 potential grad / 5th year in Mannelly, Medich & Rubenstein). And two transfers so far, there could be more if we get another Chandler available! But we need to get to...

    NCAA Tourney

    Is this the year we win Regionals? The poll is open till Tuesday since we'll find out our bracket on Monday. We can beat anyone in the field. We can lose to anyone in the field. All of the RPI ratings haven't updated for our win today, so more on that later. But 13-8 against top 25 is very...

    Clemson Series

    May is money month for NCAA seeding. You can be hosting going in and fall out or on the bubble and climb up and in. Tomorrow is the first May series. We have the resume so far to climb up, just have to win our last two series. For those counting, winning both series means we need to win the...

    Duke Series

    It's never as good as it seems. It's never as bad as it seems. But last night we put it all together and it was damn good. Regardless, we have 4 ACC series left. Since Chandler returned and I started introducing the weekend series two weeks ago, we are 2-0. The reader can make their own...

    UNC Series

    Well, lets see if I can go 2-0 in introducing ACC series. UNC is 2-8 against top 50 RPI teams. And 18-2 at home, so they've played easy teams mostly. UNC is skidding. Lost the last three ACC series - swept by @Miami (like everyone it seems), lost at home to VT and lost @ L'Ville. Also lost...

    FSU Series

    Thought I'd give it a try to introduce the thread for this weekend. If we have consistently good pitching and solid defense, we should take the series. And continue with our fabulous offense. Getting the consistent pitching is the problem: starting, relieving and closing. With a team ERA...

    2022 Softball

    Since there's been some discussion about women's softball, here's the wrap up from the two games this year to start off the column. (Mods can leave here or move to other sports, could make teh baseball / softball forum like basketball) A one hitter is pretty good...

    2022 Baseball Ticket Exchange

    I'll get this started this year. I have two season tickets which will be available most of the time. (Section 8, Row 9) Several criteria - 1) Must be a GT fan / student so I'll give preference to people who have posted here. 2) Must be vocal and heckle appropriately. 3) No cost but...

    What will be GT Baseball's Regular Season Winning Percentage? (Poll)

    What's your guess as to the winning percentage we'll have this regular season? We've had a discussion about how unknowable the end of the season and post-season rankings. I agree that is a fool's errand (not that that stops me). But predicting the percentage of wins in the regular season...

    Poll - Number of Wins This Year

    Have at it. I had us optimistically with 5 wins this year. Still there. We are getting better. VT - they've lost 3 in a row. Weak and wounded. (50% win) @UM - they are finding their groove. Always undisciplined. (45% win) BC - we should win this one. At 0-3 ACC they are due for some...

    When Should Collins be Fired (Poll)

    When should Collins be fired if performance doesn't get a lot better in your opinion? I think at least to the end of next year (year 4) and probably to end of year 5 so I voted for year 5. I'm resigned to us not being relevant this year based on the depth of the problems I saw Saturday night...

    SEC Adds Texas & OU, What Next?

    Form D1: https://d1baseball.com/columns/rogers-texas-ou-to-the-sec-will-have-far-reaching-implications/ Looking at D1 and GTSwarm ( https://gtswarm.com/threads/expansion-talk-2021.23535 ) it looks like the ACC will remain intact for a while. But let's consider three cases: 1) ACC remains...

    2022 Pitching

    BLUF: A bunch of guys on this year’s roster who would otherwise be eligible to return aren’t going to be on the probable 40 man roster next year. And looking ahead to 2023, the rosters should be back to the normal 35 man roster. We’ve talked about pitching being our weak link this year. Even...

    FSU Series 23-25 April 2021

    After attempting to appease the Baseball Gods, I'll start off this series. Series scheduled start times 7:30, 4 & 1. Saturday has lots of thunderstorms but may clear (~30% likely?) before the 4 PM game. Otherwise doubleheader on Sunday? On ACCNX so we will hopefully get Wiley and cohort...

    2021 Fielding

    Ga State Wednesday 4PM (? was Tuesday)

    Game scheduled for tomorrow at 4 PM ain't gonna happen then unless the teams want to play in 45F rain. Move it up or to Wednesday? Anyway, State could be good. Beat @L'Ville 1 of 4 games with another being close at 4-5. Took 2 of 4 from WVU. Also did ok mid-week against uGag (2-6). Signing...

    Mercer Bears Wednesday 1 PM

    First off, start got changed from 4 to1 PM. Weather looks nice @ 66F and sunny :) Game purported to be ACCN. Second, Mercer just swept Jackson State by a combined score of 33-0. Jackson State isn't elite but they had an rpi of 121st in 2020. So not a rollover. Third, Hall said we'd start...

    Puppy Bowl XVII

    On Animal Planet at 2PM EST today. I'm pulling for team Ruff. Mostly since my dog looks like Lionel and my son's looks like Apollo. https://www.discovery.com/shows/puppy-bowl/puppy-bowl-xvii/see/meet-the-players https://www.cnn.com/2021/01/06/entertainment/puppy-bowl/index.html Since we've...

    Who’s on First? 2021 Depth Chart Guesses and Roster

    Given our short season last year, all the new players (both recruit and transfer), as well as how young many of the starters are expected to be, I felt I needed to refresh my memory. So I updated my player database and tried to guess what the depth chart would be. The principal source is D1...

    Dungeons & Dragons & Jackets

    Tomorrow we play UAB Blazers. Regardless of the fact they are 7-1 and we are favored by 59% to 41% to win ( https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/game?gameId=401254703 ) , I had to check out why they are the Blazers. Seems they adopted dragons as their mascot which is cool. After all...
