Good to see that Tech’s finally coming back to Tallahassee. An even better change will be if Tech can manage a win here.

Cool, I could walk to the first two games from work.

Looks like a fairly weak OOC schedule. I would like to see Tech return to playing a traditional rival in the final game. Even without seeing the full ACC schedule, I can guarantee that Duke-NC and MD-UVA are going to be the final regular season games of the season.

Last game will settle last place likely. Maybe one of those teams will get double digit wins.

Will win couple couple games they should have lost and lose a couple they should have won’ perhaps 17-13 record is obtainable if they work hard and avoid foul trouble. Being short-handed, fould trouble and turnovers must be eliminated..

Wake has been a pretty good rival until recently (thinking of Chris Paul/ Jarret Jack years.) I would enjoy a game with Clemson to finish off though because you get fans traveling…

the non conference schedule is weak because we lost to Kennesaw and Siena and nearly lost to Mercer. When you can’t compete with those teams, you don’t want to make a tougher schedule, especially with a 7 man roster.

A schedule only your mother could love. GT should be ashamed of this non conference portion. To say “cupcakes” would be step up.

Probably about (14) wins looking at the schedule. Tough start within the conference with the way it sets up with home and away games. If the team plays hard and improves on the fundamentals I’ll be happy. Everyone will be back in 2012. Add the recent commits, along with the new arena, and CBG will be well on his way to making TECH basketball fun again.

Hilltopper, TECH plays eight quality opponents outside of the conference. Please list the “murderer’s row” your team has bitten off to play.

Mr Leather: My team’s schedule includes Michigan St., South Carolina, So.Cal or UNLV, Wisconsin, Ky, and Texas. Plus Duke and the not so tough rest of the ACC teams. (UNC is the team).

The ACC Tournament is in Atlanta at Phillips Arena, not in Greensboro as shown here.

“Hill”, TECH plays Northwetern, Alabama, St Josephs, Seton Hall/VCU, probably LSU in final, Georgia, Sienna(NCAA invite) and Duke. Considering you guys have seventeen McDonald boys and we are rebuilding I don’t see much difference. I suggest you should be more concerned with the mess going on with your gridiron team vs slamming TECH’s basketball schedule.

Last time UGA made it past the first round in the NCAA tournament? Don’t really care, but it was 2009 for GT. Last time UGA won a championship in football conference/national? 2009/1990 for Tech. You have more alumni which stay local. We have fewer alumni and way fewer that stay in state. You have tons more of an athletic budget and consistently get better recruits only to under perform. We know our program is one that will be at the bottom to middle of the top 25 and maybe a little higher at its best. You guys seem to think that your team will win a national championship every year. Not sure why you torture yourself with disappointment.

Mr. Leather: Last time I looked it was GT giving up trophies and refunding cash. And to compare Sienna and Fordham to MSU, WI, KY, or Tx means you need another one.

“Hill”, never mentioned Fordham, although that will probably be a big test for our thin team. See you on the flats on 9/24, hopefully CPJ lays another 300+ rushing day on the boys in “powder blue” and another L in the series. Take care.

I’m a big fan of GT and our new coach. He will do great. He might surprise a few people this year with some big wins but defintely we will be back to the top soon!

And PS: cupcakes??? St Joe’s, Seton Hall, VCU and another game at that tourney, Northwestern, Georgia, Tulane and Alabama. Those are decent non-conf games.
