    Can this board get back to its good days?

    This board has become a really depressing place. We used to have many different opinions and it was the best board IMO, because it was very balanced. We had both sides of the spectrum that talked to each other respectfully. Now that it's back there has been nothing but whining and depressing posters going off on annoying rants. Everything is not well in the world of GT athletics, but it's not the end of the world either, so let's lighten up and respectfully talk sports and maybe try to find a bright spot or two looking forward.

    I take offense to this! LOL. I think we just need to get the word out that the board is back up. I checked daily the first couple weeks then every few days after that. Others might have more of a life, lol.

    Certainly this is a board and everyone is entitled to their opinion. It is just that mine is right and yours is wrong. --91Wreck

    Gosh folks..........we thought here in the country that the board was dead and Jim was prisioner of the Force....I agree when we get the word out we will get the guys back that made this so much fun...it will happen but it may be slower than we want it to be..........we will win.

    Can GT football get back to the "good ole days"? It's been pretty depressing lately!

    Seriously though, I get where you are coming from. I honestly don't have anything positive to say or any hope at all that we are heading in the right direction, so I'm going to try to post as little as possible. Believe it or not, I do not enjoy being negative.

    The positive people found another board...maybe they will come back, maybe they won't.

    I can understand why you're not happy with the program, I'm not either but I also don't think there's any point in pouting about PJ. He's here for now and I want to win no matter who the coach is, or how ****ty we've been the last 3-4 years. I want to see how this group does and I want to support them even though I'm not happy with how we've played recently.

    I unlike some people don't think the offense has been figured out or anything, I just think we don't have the right quarterback. Maybe Justin is that guy, but I'm not sure. Our offensive line has to step up and it would be huge if Custis turns out well. I'm excited to see what happens. Either we win and win a lot and Paul stays, or we lost 5-7 games again and hopefully he's canned and we move on.

    Can't argue with that, it's a great attitude that I wish I had. I'm afraid PJ has "jumped the shark" for me though. I miss non Service Academy football...badly. Vad was my last hope our offense might take a step forward and that hope is gone! And I'm going to pout about it!

    If there is good news , I will mention it. Right now, there isn't much good news. The football team went 7-6 losing a game to UGA it really should have won. Mens' Bball can beat UGA but not much else. The baseball team is not ranked in the top 25 this year and if wasn't for a big run in the ACC 2 years ago would really be considered slipping. Even the women's sports have dropped. Volleyball has gone from perennial ACC contender to a loser. Softball has gone backwards. Even the women's basketball has dropped off the past 2 years.

    It's not like 2007-2009 when we went to a BCS bowl, won a National Championship in Women's Tennis, had a strong volleyball team, and had other sports that were contending for ACC titles. It's not as bad as the early 80's when I was at Tech but the fortunes are at a pretty low ebb.
