Wait? We have a football team?

Ok. I realize that this is a basketball blog, and there has been plenty to talk about over the last month or so with Conference Realignment, recruiting, the new IAC, and of course the basketball season starting in less than a week, but I feel that Georgetown Football deserves a little recognition right now. They defeated Fordham 30-13 in senior day yesterday to improve to 8-2 on the year.  

It was a fitting performance on senior day and sends Georgetown (8-2, 3-1 Patriot League) into next week's crucial game at Lehigh on a five-game winning streak. If the Hoyas prevail in Bethlehem, Pa. - and end a 10-game drought against the Mountain Hawks - they'll claim the school's first league title and a berth in the Football Championship Subdivision playoffs, just two years after suffering through a winless season.

This is by far the most successful season the Hoyas have had since joining the Patriot league in 2001. Since that time they have had a combined record of 28-81 (0.257). Really outside of a few successful seasons here and there, and a brief period of success in the late 1990's the Hoyas really haven't been relevant in NCAA football. In fact, they have been a combined 173-202-2 since the program was officially reinstated in 1970.

Weather this season is just a blip on the radar, or the start of something better to come, I can not say. What ever the case may be, I am going to enjoy it while I can, much like I did growing up watching the Hoyas of the late 90's. 

Also, if anyone out there wants to write Georgetown Football a $100 million check so they can rebuild into a Division 1 team and save the Big East that would be much appreciated.

Stay Casual, my friends.
