    My way too early, possibly problematic look at potential GT Hoops roster management

    Y’all remember Magic Johnson? At one point with the Lakers he had literally started at all 5 positions.

    My way too early, possibly problematic look at potential GT Hoops roster management

    I have an in-law who worked for a major car company and was forced to take early retirement while losing all their pension. After years of loyal service. Stories like this are legion and we excuse them because “capitalism,” but I frankly admire younger workers who play the same kind of...

    NCAA Makes Changes in Game Day Rules

    Eventually this will all just be a giant video game.

    I think you have it backwards. We were falling further and further behind in recruiting from the late 60s on. Other than a few outlier years the gap between us and other schools was growing wider and wider each year. Hiring CPJ was an attempt to do more with less. Unfortunately the powers...

    My way too early, possibly problematic look at potential GT Hoops roster management

    Generations coming up have nothing to compare it to, so….. Interesting thought. I don’t know. Information used to be curated to some extent. Professionals did in depth research and separated wheat from chaff. In this age of “do your own research” the amount of garbage to sort through seems...

    My way too early, possibly problematic look at potential GT Hoops roster management

    Those were good times. Help me with this. Back in those days I could more easily identify the style of play of particular teams, and the plays that were run were easier to follow. Overall, the impression was of good team execution. Today, outside of a few really good teams, I can’t tell...

    Rant away. But, first, when was the golden era of college basketball ? Or, if you had a favorite decade, when would that be?

    My way too early, possibly problematic look at potential GT Hoops roster management

    Weird, but I am ecstatically optimistic if we can hang onto Ndongo and filled with concern if we lose him. One player shouldn’t make that big of a swing in my emotions but…… I like the idea of George, Reeves and Ndongo returning and being able to communicate to new position players what the CDS...

    Naw, we just gonna be trading players with other teams, like the pros. “You want a quality running back? We’ll give you one, plus a backup receiver for a starting nose tackle.”

    I don’t know the answer to your question but it reminds me of a conversation we’ve had for at least the last twenty years in Tech circles. Good defensive linemen are scarce to begin with and among those very few seem cut out for the riggers of being a student athlete at Tech.

    Question. Is it easier for a student athlete to qualify at Tech is they have a decent academic record at another college? I would think some players might want to come to Tech out of high school but have an easier time as a transfer. Would this make the portal our friend?

    I agree 1000 % But, his subsequent play (and apparent attitude at) Nebraska might lead one to conclude that his rehabilitation might be too long of a project when we need players who are ready to go now and who have bought into the system. I just don’t think we have time to experiment with a...

    OJ SIMPSON DEAD at age 76

    Wonder what his legacy will eventually be? Even after the murder trial he found celebrities to play golf with, like Arnold Palmer and Michael Jordan, so money and power still seem to attract each other. His football accolades are beyond dispute but questions about his relationships to women...

    OJ SIMPSON DEAD at age 76

    Yes, saw the series on the trial and thought it was well done. Zooming out to the larger story, of which the trial is only a part, would be fascinating also. Who was OJ and how did he become who he was? Certainly a lot of info is public record and on line but a well done movie biopic would be...
