    Crazy talk! I can't do those things and start a FIRE THE COACH thread AND a NCAA tournament speculation thread.

    If anyone has the propensity to lose their **** after every loss by a team that is working hard to improve, then yes, correct.

    Doubly correct when they're quick to lose their **** after a loss, but are a ghost after a win.

    How about we win the ACC tournament and fire the coach this year. Let's have it all!

    As fans, we need to be relentlessly positive. Our guys sacrifice 40+ hours a week practicing, watching tape, hitting the weights...doing school work while on road trips. Have their back no matter what. We will get there!

    You are 100% correct. I actually believe some people think the kids don’t care sometimes. That’s bull. These kids give/care more than you can imagine. Try walking in their shows around the campus after a loss. There’s no where to hide. They need the support of all

    I think we should just stick with NIT at this point. Be happy to keep improving. Next year is a big big year for the program.

    I mean I guess I can’t say with absolute certainty I couldn’t have survived, but I honestly can’t imagine that I could’ve survived Tech if I had 40-50 hours removed from my schedule each week.

    When Devoe kissed the front end of his 1 and 1 against Virginia Tech, he was obviously upset and down. Our guys were all over him to pick him up. I freaking loved that.

    They’re the best team out there who’s name starts with Gardner & ends with a word that rhymes with Jebb

    Might not be the best place to post it but Caesers just posted their NIt championship odds
    Notable teams:
    Georgia tech at 40/1
    Arizona 15/1
    Saint Mary’s 6/1
    Utah state 12/1
    A ton of teams: 30/1
    Tied for 20th best in odds so a 6 seed prediction?

    Oh wow. Nice odds there. I'd be happy with a NIT berth. As long as this team is trending up, I'm totally for it. And the NIT would give us the chance to play at home a few more times.

    This. Sometimes our kids have more resolve and character than the adult spectators who "support" GT. The character our young men and women show representing the Institute puts them firmly (and forever) in my opinion into the class of deserving our full support. I am excited to see if we can make a run here through the conference schedule. Wins today help prepare us for the ACC Tourney as well. Something I would like to see us make some noise in again.

    Go Jackets!

    re: seed, don't forget that regular season champs that don't win their conference tourney are guaranteed a bid to the NIT. Lot of small conference champs fill the 8 seeds on up. Need to work up to a 4-5 seed to feel safe. Just like the NCAAT is not the 68 best teams.
