    I think the biggest thing is that this program needed someone that could come in after Gregory and significantly enhance the talent level. Pastner was supposed to be a very good recruiter, but who knows what has happened there. It will be interesting to see how Capel does at Pitt, as they have had a very nice start to their season.

    Is Pastner on ambien? He had no pulse in this game. Lifeless. He always talks about energy givers and energy takers, he’s the worst type right now. This early in season and he seems comatose. Just a spectator. I’ve been a fan of Pastner’s, and still support him, but this loss, he has to own 100%. He should have made it mandatory to dump into Banks during the last 8 mins; Johnnies one big guy fouled out, and we held ball til last 7 secs of shot clock then a heave on multiple trips. We were in bonus last 4/5 mins. Pastner body language looks like a man who’s given up. Really weird for a guy that talks so much about self-motivation. C’mon coach, this team needs energy from the sideline, especially in the road. Pastner grades out as D-.

    Not that I'm saying I wish we kept him but I'm pretty certain we'd be a better program today if we had instead of going gregory into Pastner.

    Haywood/Alvarado/Devoe: 1 for 15 from 3.
    Banks 5 for 5 FG, 4 for 6 FT. Relative to Banks effectiveness, CJP froze him out last 8 mins. Really poor coaching awareness and urgency. His passive, in-game coaching was perplexing.

    There is nothing we can do but hope it works out at this point. It’s embarrassing that this is where we are. Other programs find a way....why are we different?

    What football schools in particular do you care me to list? Tons of schools that don’t even care about the sport seem to make it every once in a while. Alabama and Auburn have passed us. We can’t even get close to making the tournament.

    If you are talking about the program for the past 15 years then sure. The gregory hire was a complete and utter failure and it was terrible at the time and his practice of building entirely around transfers is a huge reason why we are where we are. I'm talking about in the current situation from where Pastner took over. IMO if Okogie was on this team we have no more than 1 loss and possibly be undefeated, and either way be in a decent spot to make the NCAAT. He'd be the go to guy as we've seen both Tenn and St. Johns' have and rely on. But we don't and that difference has probably been the difference in at least two of our losses, probably 3.

    Also, I want to point out that Drew who everyone wanted and inherited a better position went worse last year than we did.

    Yet landed an incredible recruiting class (unfortunately Garland is out for the year).

    Amazing what having a recent history of NCAAT can do to help recruiting.

    This is unwarranted. He was in my Hell No list but he is a better coach than BG. He is a better promoter than BG. He was also one of the few guys that actually WANTED to be here. This isn’t a desirable job guys. Coaches aren’t clamoring to be at Georgia Tech. Our administrations unwillingness to protect DLab only makes the job less desirable. Plus we finally get our form under TWO contracts in the next 12 months.

    I think we had enough talent to win at Tennessee, Northwestern, and today at St Johns. At the first two, we had horrendously slow starts, but played good defense.

    Today, we got unexpected good play out of our front court. Banks continues to develop, and had a great game. Wright and Moore both contributed and played well. I’m not used to our front court standing out, but they did.

    The first half looked energized and well coached, into the second half. We were great from the paint, and meh from outside the arc.

    Around the time that Alvarado got a technical, we got away from two point plays and started going for 3s. We got into an awful dry spell, and St Johns started playing more aggressive defense, and they started hitting 3s.

    When Jose was out, we turned the ball over and couldn’t bring the ball up the court.

    We had a 16 point lead, and tried to trade 3s with St Johns. If we had kept playing under the basket and trading 2s for their 3s, we would have won going away. Instead, we bled away what should have been a solid lead.

    The second half looked very poorly coached. Pastner used his timeouts, but we spent the second half playing as a bunch of individuals instead of team ball. We had the advantage in the front court, and you’d see shots with no jackets near the basket. That should have been addressed. I looked at the box score, and we had very few assists. We should be putting our teammates in a position to score.

    Jose is a baller, and wants the clutch shot, but he needs to dish the ball out to players in a better position than him. We saw a 5 point swing at the end of the first where a forward could have just had a layup and time would have expired. Sometimes, he’s not even looking for another player.

    I will say it's a sad day when a recruit chooses Northwestern over Georgia Tech because of their more recent success. As someone that's followed the NW program for decades, that's something you would never think you'd hear.
