Ok coach HallThis is a curious thing. I'm serious. How does one "demand winning"? What control does the fanbase (in general) have. I understand there is likely a relatively small coalition of "influential" folks who can move the needle. I'm not that. Not close. I'm just an idiot living in Virginia. I wear GT gear every 3rd day or so. I go to GT games within a day's drive when it is convenient... sometimes it takes some convincing for my family to understand how "convenient" it is. I travel to Atlanta no more than 1-2 times a year (usually for football). I pay close attention to the GT sports that I find fulfilling. That happens to be baseball, football, basketball (in that order... with baseball far and away #1).
I can't demand winning anymore than I can be complicit in losing. Should I find more to complain about? Will that generate a change toward more winning? Or is just WANTING to win REALLY REALLY bad what it takes. I'm definitely there. I don't take credit when GT does well. I'm not losing any sleep over it being my fault when the team loses.
All of them?I don’t think people on here realize that a couple hot ACC Tournaments after bad seasons in 12 and 14 and an incredibly lucky at-large bid in 16 kept nearly the entire decade from being a total loss before the 2019 resurgence. Hall did some really good things all the way up through 2011 and losses in the regionals were a combo of bad defense and bad luck.
But between 2012-2019 he basically survived on 2 hot May weekend auto-bids in Greensboro. Name me a list of SEC schools or ACC schools south of the Mason-Dixon Line where a baseball coach would survive that.
Completely agree on Ramsey. I'm hoping they have a succession plan in place and maybe he is the secret coach in waiting.I'm fine with Hall staying, I'm even finer with Hall retiring on his own after all these years after all he has done for the program.
If we lose Ramsey, we are screwed. I think he is the future of our program.
DBo needs to figure out how to coach and develop college pitchers. I think he will.
Someone has to fix the defense and I don't know who that is because they haven't this year or most of the past two decades. Have to recruit more than bats.
