Not sure what JT3 said to the team in the locker room after the loss to South Florida, but I wish he would have gotten on the PA system at Verizon and said it to all fans, the few that actually showed up.  Tweets from players acknowledge the loss, and state it is time to move on.  Wish it was that easy for the rest of us.

Here is what others said after the loss, a combination of South Florida is actually pretty good and Georgetown is really not that good.

Sluggish Second Half Dooms Hoyas in Trap Game | The Hoya
After a loud, intimidating atmosphere in the Verizon Center during last Saturday’s win over Duke, Georgetown fans didn’t seem to realize there was a game sandwiched in between Duke and Villanova. For much of the second half the Hoyas didn’t seem to either.

South Florida 72, No. 7 Georgetown 64 | Washington Examiner
It's hard to say what was more brutal, the way that Georgetown collapsed against South Florida, or the way the Hoyas said so little about it afterward it was almost as if they were trying to pretend it didn't happen.

No. 7 Georgetown stunned by hot-shooting South Florida, 72-64 -
The Hoyas, who had shot 71.7 percent from the floor against Duke, shot just 36 percent in the second half against South Florida. They were woefully off-target from the free throw line when it mattered most, hitting just 11 of 22 overall and missing five in a row in the waning minutes.

Around the Top 25: Bob Huggins acting as peacemaker is commentary all to itself | College Hoops Journal
—UPSET— South Florida 72, No. 7 Georgetown 64. The win over Pittsburgh wasn’t enough for the Bulls. What has gotten into USF? They’d never won back-to-back Big East games before last Monday, and now they’ve reeled off four straight. I’ve got an entire post dedicated to Dominique James coming up later this morning, but without the help of Gus Gilchrist, who is out due to injury, the team’s four-game winning streak is all the more impressive. Georgetown has sandwiched the Duke win around two soggy pieces of bread in the form of the road loss to Syracuse and this letdown last night. Greg Monroe fouling out is always going to kill this team. The Hoyas fell apart last season. Too early to start thinking it’s a repeat performance, but I think you’d be foolish to think G’town was ever truly as good as its top-10 ranking.

South Florida Bulls vs. Georgetown Hoyas - Recap - February 03, 2010 - ESPN
With a minute to play in perhaps the biggest win in South Florida history, the star player bellowed to the Georgetown crowd: "Y'all come watch Dominique Jones play!"

"We've never beat anyone with this magnitude on the road. Pittsburgh was good but obviously Georgetown is ranked higher and at the same time we beat Marquette last year... at our place. We never won a game like this on the road and our confidence has been growing and we won some games on the road but this one is a huge jump on the radar screen. There will be a lot of happy people in Tampa. There will be a lot of people that are really shocked and all we are trying to do is keep going through the journey and doing the best job we can and grow as players and people." - Stan Heath

"I’ll be brutally honest — I’m really amazed with our team," Stan Heath said. "It’s the best win in our school history, to beat an outstanding team like Georgetown. I have no idea if they were enjoying Duke or looking at Villanova, but we played really well, really hard. We became the more aggressive team in the second half.
