Peanut Gallery: DePaul Blue Demons vs. Georgetown Hoyas

What some Hoyas are thinkin' about the Hoyas.

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

This is clearly some kind of dream. Don't worry, though, we'll wake up on Saturday. Probably by around 5:15pm.

We'll always be this free
We will be living for the love we have
Living not for reality

View from the Student Section - A Youthful Perspective from Campus

Holy cow this is impressive. I thought Georgetown could beat any of the 6 teams we played before Friday, but in no way did I think we would roll through Cincinnati and keep the streak going. Now it seems all anybody can think of is the showdown to come this Saturday afternoon. That's what makes this game against the Blue Demons the epitome of a trap game. DePaul has been playing teams tough lately. In their last 6, they've taken Notre Dame and St. John's to overtime (ND twice), played Marquette close, and, most recently, beaten Rutgers. These guys are in the top 50 in scoring, so they can put points on the board. Georgetown is probably gonna win this game, but I don't exactly expect it to be a blowout all the way through. The student section doesn't look to be very packed for this midweek whimper against a terrible opponent and it won't be helped by the absence of my Casual Headband either. I WOULD be at this game, but seeing as I've been notified by the members of this blog that I should experience sex and/or weed, I'll be doing that instead. That is, only if my MCAT prep course instructor brings weed and falls in love with me at first sight. Y'all best show up though. Come early, be loud, wear gray. Hoya Saxa!

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

This isn't the way this is supposed to work. Every win makes me more nervous for the next game. Everyone is talking about this being a trap game and all signs point to that being the case. Gritty road win in the last game? Check. Biggest rivalry up next on the road? Check. As many have noted, though, this team seems different. Every game seems to test a different aspect of the this edition's psyche and they have answered with a fat middle finger over the last few weeks. This makes me more optimistic than I should probably be. Enough with the pollyanna bullshit... I am on full-tilt Holy Shit! Level nervousness. I don't care what anyone says. These Demons always scare me and their Melvin is from Bodymore. He is likely coming in looking to show out in front of his friends and family. Watch him.

I am very happy to report that Cablevision has elected to give WatchESPN access to the idiots that pay for their hippo-dump of a service. This means that I can sit on this shitty commuter train tonight and fight with this awful blackberry to try and get an idea of the level of suck that will likely be coming out of DC. #OldManProblems.

At least I can twitter-rock that documentation. Everyone should follow along and try and guess the progression of my face from red to purple alongside the realization that the loss is really going to happen.

Enjoy your Wednesday.

Nervousness Level: Kneebuckling Oh Shit!

- An Unbiased Perspective from Vegas:

The Line: Georgetown -14.

I'm not buying this whole "trap game" thing because I firmly believe that JT3 has these guys in lockstep and there don't appear to be any bad eggs in this carton. I have no idea what that meant, but I'll tell you what I'm also not buying: FOURTEEN MOTHERLOVING POINTS.

The pick is DePaul +14. Final score Hoyas 71 - Blue Dudes 58.

Casual Hoya is 14-5 ATS this season.
Overall 70-39-1.
