#84 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets: College Basketball 111 in 111

georgia tech buzz

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

As expected, year one of Brian Gregory’s rebuilding effort at Georgia Tech encountered several bumps in the road.  While the Yellow Jackets return six of their top seven scorers and bring in a solid recruiting class, they still lack the firepower to be a real competitor in the ACC.

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s second annual college basketball season preview series.  Last year we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  This year, we are being slightly more aggressive and expanding to 111 teams in 111 days.  We will rank the 74 power conference teams and top 37 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

Firing their head coach, losing their best player to the NBA Draft, and being hit with NCAA violations; not exactly the ideal off-season for a program.  Now the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets enter the season with only nine scholarship players and will likely be even worse this year than they were a season ago.

Derrick Favors and Gani Lawal are now in the NBA.  Translation: Georgia Tech is in trouble.  So much trouble that I do not think Paul Hewitt will still be coaching this team when the 2011-2012 season rolls around.
