GT game thread

We have won four of the past five and are still on track for a 11-7 if not better record. This is a road game so it will not be as boring as the last game but this one will not come down to a final shot.
I think we win by 8 points. 79-71.

    I hope you’re right. GT played tough against Maryland, but I think this team is focused on finishing the season strong. Should be a good game.

    I hear that CJ may not be starting tonight due to breaking team rules.

  3. 44rules 03/03/2013 at 3:41 PM #

    Hope so. Leaving soon for the arena. Last game I visited was Clem’s Son, and we won that one.

    Can’t wait to hear all the scenarios later tonight, considering the heels are easily holding serve at home today.

    Thanks a lot FSU, btw.

    It an away game. Which team shows up? If its the usual away team philosophy we will be playing on Thursday night.

    I predict palpitations.

    Lets go BC. Hopefully they can pull out a W. obviously it means nothing if we can’t win out.

  9. Wufpacker 03/03/2013 at 5:43 PM #

    Poor little BC, they’re trying their hardest God bless ‘em.

    And Sparty looked like they were on the verge of getting tanked but are now trying to climb back in it.

    Pack Baseball takes an early 1-0 lead on Coastal (at least I think so….gametracker has been kinda retarded thus far so no guarantees).

    Mista Wolf,

    WE MUST PULL FOR BC. The logic and explanation is posted in the forums.

    If DUKE had beaten UVA and then one of the next three teams (BD, MD, or FSU…..I may be wrong on them….but they are pansies…) beat UVA, then we would be OK.

    Right now, our only (most likely) chance is

    Miami will be 1st…..
    Duke will be second…..I don’t think it can go any other way unless Miami falls apart.
    UVA will be a SOLID (no ties) third.
    If DUKE beats UNC, then we will be, assuming we win out and UNC does not drop any OTHER games, in a tie with UNC for 4th. According to the ACC rules, then you compare records starting at the top. BOTH were beaten, % wise, by Miami. We lost once and UNC twice.
    THEN….on to Duke. UNC would have lost TWO or had a ZERO % Win….we beat Duke ONCE and lost ONCE….so we are 50% Win. BINGO….we are NUMBER 4.
    If it is a three way tie for 4th (UVA in the mix) we loose. You take the combined records against the OTHER two. UVA is 67% Win; UNC is 50% Win and we are 33%….again, UVA is third and UNC is fourth.

    SO….the way my wife and I understand the rules and the probabilities…..

    Duke and Miami are not going to change anything…..as long as Duke did not end up in a tie for 3rd….and that may be theoretically impossible.

    UVA would have to DROP 2 to not be in the tie.
    UNC would have to DROP 2 to not be in the tie….even if UNC lost one to someone else and beat DUKE…..that puts them IN.
    So the only probable scenario is what I laid out.

    NOW, I admit to having senior moments and maybe not understand it….but several folks have said that is correct…

    Well I’ll be damned.

    Go Eagles :D

    Suck it Virgina.

  14. StateMan 03/03/2013 at 5:59 PM #

    We win out and pull for uva in all games and pull for dook over unc=We get 4th

  15. ADVENTUROO 03/03/2013 at 6:02 PM #

    Hello THURSDAY….

    BC just beat UVA. UNLESS UNC loses the next two OR if UVA DROPS on of their next TWO…..it is OVER…

    FINI…..

    We lose in a three way tie with UVA and UNC.

    We lose in a two way tie with UVA…

    Howeve, Tony Haynes says it helps….I can’t see how….but he is the PRO…

    What do you guys say?

  16. BJD95 03/03/2013 at 6:04 PM #

    0-2. We are dooooomed!!!

  17. TheAliasTroll 03/03/2013 at 6:06 PM #

    they are making Brown work to get the inbounds pass to try and slow us down off a made bucket.. it’s working so far

  18. TLeo 03/03/2013 at 6:07 PM #

    That had to be an UGLY game with the way BC and UVA play BB games.

  19. BJD95 03/03/2013 at 6:09 PM #

    That carter jr dude has a freakishly small head.

  20. Wufpacker 03/03/2013 at 6:09 PM #

    Adventuroo,
    UVa now has six losses. We win out and they lose one more we won’t be tied with them. They still have FSU on the road and UMd at home.

  21. inhoc... 03/03/2013 at 6:10 PM #

    ok,. i dont get espn U, anyone have a link!?

  22. BJD95 03/03/2013 at 6:11 PM #

    Sparty has come all the way back. Last shot with chance to win…

  23. BJD95 03/03/2013 at 6:12 PM #

    Until they turn it over for an easy UM dunk. Wow. That’s gotta sting.

  24. MrPlywood 03/03/2013 at 6:12 PM #

    What inhoc said. My go-to source is not up.

  25. Texpack 03/03/2013 at 6:13 PM #

    Not a bad start. Wood 0-2 is the only negative so far.
