The Georgetown Football Hoyas begin another illustrious campaign on September 3, 2011 when they face off against Davidson in what we here at THE GLOBAL PHENOMENON are dubbing "The Redemption Bowl". Since Stephen Curry went bananas against the Hoyas in the second half of the second round of the NCAA Tournament in 2008, things haven't been rosy in post-season play for the men's basketball team. The basketball team will have to rely on their oft-forgotten little brothers on the football team to reverse the Curse of Curry.
You may remember the Hoyas starting out like a house on fire last year, winning three of their first four games and threatening to crack the Top 25. Unfortunately, they lost their next six before a thrilling 14-7 victory over Marist to end the season. The Hoyas return the core of their 2010 team, including standout defensive end Andrew Schaetzke and cornerback Jayah Kaisamba.
