Peanut Gallery: Georgetown Hoyas vs. Connecticut Huskies

What some Hoyas are thinkin' about the Hoyas.

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

What can I say? Nothing. There is nothing I can say. This little adventure has already greatly exceeded expectations, to say the least. So let's see if it works with a live performance. And a cover, at that.

Man, have any of y'all stopped smiling since Saturday? Because I'm pretty sure I've been in an awesome mood ever since around 6 PM on February 23rd. That win was great, absolutely phenomenal but, as much as I would love to devote this entire post to basking in the glory of the victory over the hated Orange, there is a game on Wednesday night that is almost as important. This UConn game is a weird one. UConn's season ends on March 9 regardless of their performance which means all they really have to play for are games against top-tier opponents like Georgetown. Visits to Storrs have not been very pleasant for Cincinnati and Syracuse in the last few weeks and Georgetown is the last good team the Huskies play at home this year, so you can be guaranteed that place is gonna be rockin. UConn has a good team too, which is surprising. Kevin Ollie has done a hell of a job taking a program that was in ruins after the departure of Jim Calhoun to being a pretty respectable bunch. UConn scares me and despite our recent run of great play, they should scare you too. I hate that I'm going to miss being able to watch a second consecutive Wednesday game due to the damn MCAT, but a kid's gotta do what a kid's gotta do. Hoya Saxa.

Real Busy. I was supposed to go to the game and now I can''t due to work.

Really just don't know what to say. We have never beaten them in that dump of an arena. Should be a nice fat letdown after all of the positive press this team has gotten over the last 3 days.

The remainder of this season will not be relaxing. NOT.ONE.BIT.

Nervousness Level: Holy Shit Nervous.

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

The Line: Georgetown -2.0. Over/under 123.

The fact that the Hoyas have NEVER won in Storrs scares the casual bejeesus out of my wallet, but this team has been reversing trends all season. No reason to think that this Hoyas varietal won't be able to at least contain Napier and Boatright on the perimeter and abuse UConn's thin frontcourt with, um..Nate Lubick and Mikael Hopkins!

The pick is Georgetown -2. Final score Hoyas 65 - Huskies 58.

Casual Hoya is 15-6 ATS this season.
Overall 71-40-1.
