It seems like less than three weeks ago that we were thinking the Yellow Jacket baseball team would break into the top ten. When I look back about that, well golly, it was less than three weeks ago. Things change in the world, and we must accept that. When you fall to Georgia Southern, twice to Florida State, once to Wake Forest, to Mercer..badly..and twice to Duke all in 13 outings, you are not top ten. Maybe our time has come and gone.
Or has it? This is still the same Yellow Jacket team that led the nation in batting average and slugging percentage earlier in the year. These are the same Jackets who produced players of the week in the conference and in the nation. But something is missing. The fire has gone out. From a team that was making thunder from the upper Piedmont to the Great Lakes, our team is withering into a group that is lacking in self confidence and bravado.
Our time has not come and gone. Our time has come to get going. Again. And the time has come for us fans to send these young men the message. "We are with you. We back you. We are your fellow Jackets, and we know you can win like champions because that is what you still are. We believe in you" Coach Danny Hall's e-mail is listed on the Tech website, so you can look it up for yourself, but I'm not giving away anything by giving it to you other fans. Please send the message. firstname.lastname@example.org
Back the Jackets!
