Peanut Gallery: Towson Tigers vs. Georgetown Hoyas

What some Hoyas are thinkin' about the Hoyas.

View from the DJ Booth - A Musical Perspective from lordnick:

Ingrid Schorr can explain: "In the spring of 1980 I was at college in Athens, GA. My once-good grades had given way to behavior that my parents were starting to get wind of, and they instructed me to come back home to Maryland for the summer. I didn't want to go. Everything in Athens was so...fresh and exciting. I had just started taking part in the innocent decadence that would sustain the scene for the next several years. And I was just beginning a romance with Mike Mills, the bass player in the weeks-old R.E.M. A few weeks before the end of spring quarter he said to me -- we were at Tyrone's, the local rock club, standing between the Rolling Stones pinball machine and the Space Invaders game, playing neither -- 'I finally meet a girl I like and she's got to go back to Rockville.'"

Towson is 50 miles away from Rockville. Mike wouldn't have wanted Ingrid to go back there either.

View from the Student Section - A Youthful Perspective from Campus:

Well now that I'm finally past the glorious hangover from beating Texas (and yes, it was glorious), I can focus on this intense weekend of Hoya sports before finals starts. I'm super pumped for the game this afternoon against our lovely turtley neighbors. I and the rest of the clan will convene in the Casual Man Cave to observe some low-scoring, fast-kicking action with maybe a brew or two. We will then spend part of the rest of the evening thinking up clever heckles for the return of the BENIMONSTER. Look, I only saw him play for one year and I ended up really hating the guy. Like, you know how everyone shouts "NO!" when Nate shoots a 3? Well we got in the habit of shouting "NO!" every time someone tried to throw the ball in Benimon's general direction. The Benimonster is Towson's best player, which should be a good indicator of exactly how shitty Towson is. I mean these guys just got done setting the NCAA record for consecutive losses not too long ago! I'm not very happy about the sunrise start time on Saturday, but hopefully the rest of the students will turn out for this last gasp of fun before everyone starts taking exams! Come early, be loud, wear gray, yell at Jerrelle. Hoya Saxa!

View from the Cheap Seats - A Nervous Perspective from JahidiLikesPie:

I am not nervous about this game. My close PERSONAL friend Coach Knight said we would win today.I am nervous that Jerrelle might score more more points than Comrade.

Nervousness Level: LOW

View from the Sports Book
- An Unbiased Perspective from Vegas:

The Line: Georgetown -19.5.

I may have been born at night but it wasn't last night. I'll take 19.5 points whenever I can get them, thank you very much. Hoyas should be up 20 in the final minutes but Caprio Time is going to cash this winning ticket.

The pick is Towson +19.5. Final score Hoyas 72 - Tigers 55.

Casual Hoya is 4-1 ATS this season.
Overall 59-36-1.
