Numbers in Georgia Tech’s loss

0 times in his career that Georgia Tech coach Paul Hewitt had been ejected before Sunday’s game at Virginia Tech.

2 technicals called against Paul Hewitt in the first half, resulting in his first ejection.

5 consecutive double-doubles for Virginia Tech’s Jeff Allen, who scored 25 points and grabbed 14 rebounds.

5 consecutive losses for the Yellow Jackets.

6 technicals called in the game, including two separate ones against Glen Rice. He wasn’t ejected because the first was called after he hung on the rim.

14 consecutive losses on opponent’s courts for Georgia Tech, stretching back to Jan. 16, 2010 when the Jackets defeated North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

30-point lead for the Hokies with 9:45 remaining in the game.

33 points, a season-high, for Virginia Tech’s Malcolm Delaney. He hit 9 of his 14 field goals, including 3 of 4 3-pointers. He hit 3 of 11 field goals and missed all three of his 3-pointers in Georgia Tech’s 72-57 win in Atlanta.

55-percent shooting for Virginia Tech. The Hokies hit 68 percent of their shots in the first half. Georgia Tech hit 42.9 percent of its shots.

102 points allowed by Georgia Tech. It was the first time since 2009 that Tech has allowed more than 100 points in regulation, when North Carolina scored 104 on Feb. 28.

Forget to watch the game, but why did Hewitt get ejected? Did he actually demonstrate a little passion for once? Regardless, it’s time now for him to go. No sense waiting till the end of the season. The team doesn’t look like they’re being coached anyway, so what difference can it possibly make if there’s no man in a suit sitting on the bench?

That Hewitt shows no class by resigning disgusts me. He wants to get fired so he can run with his $7 Million. Shows you what he is made of.

Those numbers alone should get Hewitt fired. His overall body of work should get him fired. If this keeps up Tech basketball will become like Duke football. They will have a team but it won’t matter much.

I honestly want to know how long you Techies can blame the coach. When will you ever look at the entire program, and realize that the players just aren’t up to par.

You can only blame the coach for so much. I am sure if his players executed better than what they do, things would be better.

The coach is blamed for way too much. Coach Hewitt didn’t command his players to miss open shots, let passes go off their fingertips or get juked by an opponent’s point guard.

Just accept the fact that Tech is a lower tier basketball program today. Things will cycle and you will have a winning season again, but not any time soon.

Quit your whining, and enjoy your day.

Watkinsville, the problem is that no matter what players are on the team, the results are the same. And that is PROOF that it’s the coaching. We had 2 great players last year, and yet we still didn’t have any kind of recognizable offensive scheme. Who’s fault is that???

If your program is relying on a one-and-done freshman to anchor your program, then maybe you should take a look at the recruiting.

I assure you Hewitt wants to win, and does whatever he can to do so. But having sub-par players going up against better ACC players is not going to get it done.

So keep whining, and pointing fingers at the easiest possible target. It’s fin to listen to.

I would say this is major karma biting you in the butts after the pompous actions your entire fanbase took after a rainy day in November 2008.

Now reality is setting back in. And it’s hilarious to see.

Who do you think is responsible for the state of the GT basketball program? Possibly the person who has been in charge for over 10 years, recruited all of the players, hired the assistant coaches, installed the offense (whatever that is supposed to be), choses which players play in which positions, decides which defense to play, prepares the players for the game, calls time outs at strange times, subsitutes like crazy, etc.
That person gets paid over $1.4MM a season and has performed poorly – it’s time for him to go.

Sad to say – Past time for CPH to go – last year with 3 NBA players, he could barely be competitive. Now recruiting is going downhill, attendance is pitiful, and we are building a new arena that will go empty. DRAD, it is time to eat the $7M. Its not going to get any better next year if you don’t.

Watkinsville, the only reason I have that ID here is because of obnoxious redneck trailer trash like you who apparently can’t make it through a day without posting lies and drivel on a Tech blog. And don’t whine about any Tech fans posting on your blogs. I don’t even bother to read them, and I don’t give a damn what’s posted on them. Those of you who post here using that logic for posting are simply confirming your immaturity.

Steve, do you enjoy cleaning up all the trash that your fellow tailgaters leave in Athens??? You obviuosly haven’t been on the Tech campus anytime recently. Parts of it are very nice. I’ve never seen anything resembling nice in Athens, in spite of all the taxpayer money that they get there. You want to see a beautiful campus? Try Auburn, UNC, Duke, Notre Dame. THOSE are beautiful campuses; the cesspool in Athens is just that—-a cesspool.

Steve, as far as the crime in Atlanta, that is not Tech’s responsibility; it is the responsibility of the Atlanta police department. If Tech students or visitors suffer because of it is certainly not a laughing matter, but at the same time, it has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the school or the campus.

Nobody wants Hewitt and nobody at Tech wants to pay to make leave. I think it will be up to the FANS and other residents of ATLANTA to make life so bad for him and his wife to make him choose to leave. Drad neds to do something before no Tech fans will spend money on tickets ever again.

When Tech is down more than 15 pts, and Shumpert steals the ball and has a two on one break with a teammate streaking downcourt ahead of the pack, and all he has to do is hit him with an easy chest pass for two, and he chooses to throw an alleyoop pass from near midcourt to the rim, what has he been coached about that situation? Nothing. He chose to try to set up the spectacular when the routine would have resulted in an easy basket and gotten Tech closer to being back in the game. Who’s teaching him? There is no situational ball being taught at tech now, only gym ball.

Steve, let’s hear whatever you think is logic and give us an explanation as to how crime in Atlanta has anything to do with the quality of the Tech campus. But before you demonstrate that redneck excuse for logic, then I guess you will also have to admit that the fact that a UGA professor murdered his wife in Athens last year means that all UGA professors are dangerous. That’s the kind of logic you are using here.

Watkinsville…..CPH has been here since 2000. His start in the first five years was truly fabulous. Yes, Tech is very young. But if you played the game at some level, you would notice that there really isn’t a true half court offense. Tech scrambles and presses to make plays to give them a chance to score. Too many players take poor shots or quick shots that give fast break chances to the other team. Yes, the defense and the TO margin are vastly better than the last few years. If the big kids continue to develop, Tech will have an inside game in 2012. But Shumpert will likely bolt meaning Udofia will be the only true PG next year. Unless CPH can convince Jarrod Davis to come to Tech, the PG position will once again be a point of concern like it has been most of the last 5-6 years. ….Hewitt has ONE…yes, one …ACC winning season in eleven. Yes, early defections hurt and he has had his share. But Tech is something like one road win in its’ last 23 ACC road games. It isn’t all talent. The kids have no direction. He couldn’t even win last yaer with Favors and Lawal up front. There comes a time when a change is good for both sides. CPH should have taken the St John’s job.Honestly, there has to be a change and soon. One winning ACC season in eleven.Don’t think anyone has ever gotten by this long with that kind of record. It’s not whining. It’s frustration.
