So, what’s next?

This will be a short blog, but hopefully will generate a lot of comments.

It’s June, so things are winding down. The only thing left in the 2008-09 college season for Georgia Tech is track and field, which has a few chances to win individual titles.

There have been several notable achievements by Tech’s teams: beating Georgia in football, winning a game in the ACC men’s basketball tournament, the softball team winning a regional, etc, just to name a few.

What are your favorite memories from this past year. Let’s go ahead and assume beating Georgia is at top of everyone’s list. 

What was your favorite moment and why was it your favorite moment?

Fire Danny Hall

If Danny Hall is going to call out Tech fans for not showing up for games, then he needs to have his team ready to win and not choke like usual. You can’t leave a tired pitcher in to give up nine runs in one inning and give your team no chance to win. You can’t start a freshman who has hardly played in the infield and leave him in to commit three errors and give your team no chance to win. You can’t hire assistants with no experience and expect your team to win even if they are your golf buddy. The volleyball coach and softball coach were let go right after their seasons so let’s see if D Rad cares about baseball too. He was at Chokefest ‘09 last night so we may have a change this week.

I wish I could find me a job that paid six figures that would allow me to under perform on a regular basis. The funny thing is Tech has two of them and one of them will make a real boat load if he is let go.

Great season as usual, picked Top 10, get to playoffs in our “own” home field and Danny Hall does the usual choke game. As long as Hall is there, expect the same every season. I thought Gailey was intimadated by UGA, but Hall really gets the award in playoffs–whomever the team may be–Southern Miss?

9 runs in one inning? Just awful. Reminds me of Pee-Wee league play with 8 year olds! We do not deserve to go to the World Series and if our coach thinks we do, he is delusional.

I love how this went from a, “what is your favorite Tech sports moment” blog to a, “FIRE DANNY HALL!!!” blog…While I share in the frustration with Tech baseball, I would say my favorite Tech sports moment of the past year would be the victory over Clemson. Although worth noting would be Amanda McDowell who won her second national title (this time in doubles) for the Tech Women’s Tennis Team. Certainly not a mainstream sport, but a nice accomplishment for the young lady.

Every time tech chokes your termites start screaming to fire the coach. Wait till football season. They are building the termite hoard up to be ACC champs..hahaha They will lose and all you termites will be screaming fire the coach….just remmeber how a 8 win LSU team totally dominated you. It won’t be the last time. Dawgs rule, while the termites choke. Get used to it!

How about them YELLER JACKETS! Just another year of busting. Tech thinks they are so awesome in baseball and yet they can’t even make it to Omaha once every ten years. Danny Hall is a nobody in coaching. He makes his living off beating ACC teams and that’s it. I can’t wait to see Tech #3 preseason next year and fall short in the regional. How about winning a softball regional and and an ACC tournament basketball game as “achievements”. Here’s another one- Won 3 conference basketball games and coached kept his job because Derrick Favors is coming for 1 year. Wow who gives a flip. Tech athletics are average at best and always will be. Gotta go get my plane ticket for the Florida series. GO GOLDEN EAGLES!

Enter your comments here Danny Hall isn’t going anywhere. He is the winningest coach Tech has ever had. He is a great recruiter and a very good regular season coach. That said his teams do underperform in the playoffs. Tech baseball has always been fun and exciting during his tenure. As far as fans not showing up, well unfortunately that’s Tech fans. Football has the same problem, empty seats. Don’t know what the solution is.

The victory over FSU in football was a good one. The win over Miami was right up there as well with the way the team played. I also think the softball team had an excellent season.

SouthernMissMan, congratulations on winning the regional and good luck against the Gators. I don’t understand why you say “Tech thinks they are so awesome in baseball”. I think most of us have come to expect what just happened.

The ABSOLUTELY best thing was going to a Tech football game and knowing that we had a REAL college football coach…knowing that thanks to God and Greyhound that chan gomer gailey, who had destroyed Tech football, was gone forever.

Look around at Tech football…the excitement…the optimism…the can-do attitute. It’s fantastic.

Any Tech fan that ever defended or supported chan gomer gailey in ANY way contributed to the downfall of Tech football…you know who you are and you SUCK to the nth degree.

Thank God we have Paul Johnson and Thank God and Greyhound that we are rid of chan gomer gailey FOREVER. HALLLEEEEEEDAMLOOOOYAH!!

As a fan that spent the entire weekend at Russ Chandler I have to agree with Danny Hall for the most part. There were quite a few conversations going on around the stadium about the loyalty of Tech fans and even a UGA friend that came with me made a snide comment about how few fans we had at the game.

I am not going to say that we lost the game because we had a poor fan base showing. But it is a little sad when there are just as many Georgia State and Southern Miss fans at your home stadium. Shouldn’t college sports run a little deeper than “we will support you when you stop choking?” If you want to cheer for a team just because they are winning then feel free to go jump on a band wagon i suppose. Butt true passion is evident through wins and losses.

I am sick of all the crap and praise that Danny gets for being a good coach. He is a good recruiter and that is it. We get top prospects every year and we do nothing with that talent. They aren’t developed and coached to perform the way they should when it matters. And to top it off sometimes they aren’t even given the chance to win when bonehead pitching decisions and lineups are made. Fire DANNY HALL. Great Recruiter. Worst playoff coach ever.

I don’t know if anyone on this blog was actually at the game last night, but it was packed on the Georgia Tech side. So I’m not really sure what people are talking about with the crowd last night, it was excellent. SoutherMissMan: congratulations. Ya’ll played better than us last night. But you rant and rave about our athletic program and it’s mediocrity, but please tell me that Southern Miss is any better. You had an average football season (7-6), a below average basketball season (14-16; 4-12), and an average baseball season. You simply got hot at the right time, which I commend you for. But don’t make a stab at our athletic program when our football team went 9-4 with a brand new coach and a brand new system, our baseball team earned yet ANOTHER number 1 seed and granted a regional site, and Amanda McDowell won her SECOND STRAIGHT NATIONAL TITLE. So congratulations to your school, I commend your players and coaches and staff, but don’t ever again question the history and tradition of my school.

And who gives a flip? You’re the one posting on our blog my friend.

Clay I really don’t think the lack of fan support had anything to with all the errors made in the field. Plain and simple CHOKE JOB at its best. The Atlanta regional was one of the weakes in country; should have been a cake walk for the jackets. Fans or no fans, play the game the right way.

Hey nerds! Southern Miss just scored again! It is absolutely fantastic to see the unraveling of the Nerd Nation. I’ve lived in Atlanta for 4 years now, and seeing you arrogant, delusional losers get hammered on your own field NEVER GETS OLD! I guess for the Nerd Nation it’s back to larping, pillow biting, and hiding out in your one bedroom apartments surrounded by empty funyun bags and world of warcraft strategy guides.

What’s next? More whining of course. Boy have you got a lot to learn Doug. If they aren’t whining they are acting like God’s gift to the earth because one of their teams FINALLY accomplished something of note. They’re high as a kite one moment and then down in the dumps the next. That’s the life of a Georgia Tech fan. I think they’re bipolar and need to seek professional help. Just my opinion.

At least he’s not some douche flip-flopper that can’t make up his mind as to whether or not he should bring his old has-been behind back into the league and make another mediocre team, well, mediocre. I hope ya’ll have fun in Gainesville getting the crap kicked out of you. You got lucky with us, but we’ll see just where your baseball program is next year. I promise you, you’re not on our level and never will be. One weekend, you were the hotter team, not the better one, so don’t get it twisted. Brett Favre WAS a good quarterback. He turned his back on the Packers after they were the ones who really gave him a shot. The Falcons let him go because they realized the dude had problems. Congratulations, you really know how to grow them down in Southern Mississippi. I would say see you next year, but chances are we won’t because we’ll be hosting again, and you won’t even be in the tournament. And ya’ll should only make your plane tickets one-way, because Florida’s going to beat ya’ll all the way back to Southern Mississippi.

ATLgoldeneagle is your run of the mill UGA fan, who once again posts under a different name because UGA got their lunch money taken by FSU and OSU. They pretend to be LSU fans, Southern Miss fans, etc. It will never end until they beat us in sport of note.

Since I’ve given up on seeing the last of Coach Useless until men’s basketball gets off to another bad start next year, seeing the last of Danny Hall still has at least a faint hope at being the non-football highlight of 2008.

Failing that, I’m probably happiest with the continued progress of the women’s basketball program.

chan gomer gailey is the worst college football coach in history….thank God and greyhound that he is gone.

danny hall is possibly the worst postseason baseball coach around…he does recruit well and keeps tech’s program at a high regular season level.

paul hewitt is a pretty good recruiter but he seems to recruit them as individuals with no apparent concern of how they will fit in together.

tech will probably be better off to warm up the greyhound and get better all round coaches in basketball and baseball…but neither hall or hewitt are anywhere close to as bad as chan gomer gailey.
