CASUAL EXTRAVAGANZA: IRON HORSE


(Perspectives After The Jump)

View from the Student Section - A Perspective from Campus:

Sitting here at work currently, casually (shoutouts to the #G-bomb)...Jay Wright still owes me a beer from two years ago and I fully intend on making him fulfill his promise today. I am nervous for this game because Nova has every right to be upset after losing to Shabazz Napier's bomb squad.

I have two games left of my undergraduate career and I fully intend on winning those last two. While I still believe the double bye is a kiss of death it does look nice on the resume. So after beating the head off a Wildcat with Hoya Blue (credit to BT for actually knocking its head off) I will scream my own head off tomorrow after recovering from a weeklong sickness. Thank you to Henry Sims and Jason Clark for 4 great years. We go hard in the MOTHA F*CKIN paint.

View from the Court Side Seats - A Perspective from OldHoya:

It's a funny thing about Villanova fans - they're always stuck in the past. OldHoya cannot remember a conversation with a Nova grad that hasn't begun with, "Were you there in 1985?" Friends, of course OldHoya was at the game but 9 times out of 10, the Nova person wasn't even born when that game took place.

OldHoya has documented many times that the Nova fans are the nastiest in the Big East, worse even than Syracuse. Let's be honest - they've got a second school mentality and no one, Nova grads included, can answer the question of who teaches at Villanova (it ain't the Jesuits - we all know where they teach).

That out of the way, this will be a challenging game. Sure, Villanova collapsed against Notre Dame but they were up 20. Heading into the end of the regular season, Georgetown has to establish that the Seton Hall game was merely a hiccup and not the beginning of a late season slide

View from the Enemy- A Perspective from our Sleeping With The Enemy Interview:

Georgetown by about 12. We have a fantastic ability to be burned by overjumping the play on defense which should lead to a lot of easy put-ins. Or missed lay-ups. Shit, I'm talking myself into this team again.

JahidiLikesPie Nervous Level:

SEVERE

Sweet party last night.

Ah, the birds are chirping, there are gale force winds out and there have been Casual Hoya sightings in DC. This can only mean that CXIII is upon us. I really can't wait to see all of you Fraggles come out of the woodwork to drink and eat pizza and dance in the sunlight. My hope is that SleepyHoya makes a brief appearance only to BIG TIME the blog overlords again. Also, the afterparty is back in Glover Park this year. Anyone that attended CXI knows that this means that you should bring LOTS of singles.

Last time I saw Nova, that poor cheerleader girl was giving us the not pleasured version of the 'o face fresh off getting shabazzed. They haven't looked good this year but Wright does a pretty good job of cheating, er, coaching his players to hold us while we make our cuts. This makes me nervous. Add in the fact that ithis team come down with its annual symptoms associated with a spastic colon and I am firmly in the SEVERE category. It pains me to make that statement, but I guess I am bitter about the Brick City Bed Shitting that took place on Tuesday. If we lose this game, I will be the guy in the corner at IRON HORSE performing self-mutilation. Please don't say hello.

View from the Sportsbook (via DonBest) - A Perspective from Vegas:

The Line: Georgetown -9.5. Over/under 134.

-9.5? ARE YOU KIDDING ME? There is absolutely no chance Georgetown covers a nearly 10 point spread against a Jay Wright coached team. Zero. None.

The pick is Georgetown -9.5. Final score Hoyas 71 - Nova 58.

Casual Hoya is 14-11-1 ATS this season.
Last season: 18-14.
Overall 52-33-1.
