Greetings from sunny Tampa. Just spent a few days at Disney with the kids and in-laws. While chilly, it wasn’t nearly as cold as back in Atlanta.
The blog may be slow until we get closer to the bowl game. There just isn’t much to write about since Coach Hewitt and the hoops team still haven’t seemed to turn the corner. The overtime loss to the Noles recently was tough to take, since I’m in the midst of all my FSU in-laws. Luckily for me, they don’t really pay attention to basketball.
But then…I can’t say too much. I’ve pretty much lost interest in hoops as well. Its a sad commentary from a person who used to actually have season tickets and lived and died with this team through the 2004 NCAA run. My oldest daughter was born right at the beginning of that year’s tourney and I spent all those games holding her in my lap while rubbing her head for good luck.
I haven’t watched a single minute of GT hoops this season…and I don’t miss it. That’s sad. I chalk it up to early NBA defections and the lack of identity in GT hoops for the past few seasons.
And if Hewitt doesn’t want fans to lose even more interest, he needs to show us some results this season and start recruiting players that stick with the team and develop…I’ve had enough of these guys leaving early, it wrecks any sense of identity and cohesion in the program…
