Back Door Cuts: Stars align to light up D.C.

Freshmen, consider yourself lucky that you weren’t around last year. In recent memory, following D.C. sports has been nothing short of self-flagellation. Despite being one of the only cities in the country to have a professional team in all four major sports, the District was a laughingstock on the national sports scene.


Hoyas own the high seas

The Georgetown Sailing team is off to a great start in 2010 after one its most successful winter breaks in history. Over the weekend of January 2, the team took home first place in a 26-team field at the Rose Bowl Regatta, a feat never accomplished by Georgetown. In addition, two members of the team were named to the 2010 U.S. Sailing Development Team.


A new Hoya Paranoia: the lady Hoyas’ transition game

Last Saturday afternoon in McDonough Arena, the Georgetown Chimes walked out to midcourt to belt out the National Anthem while the Georgetown women’s basketball team prepared to take on last year’s national runner-up, Louisville.


One last chance for seniors

No one knows the sting of defeat more intimately than the seniors on the Georgetown football team. Over their four years on the Hilltop, they have seen five Hoya victories and suffered through 37 losses. To add insult to injury, this season has been the worst—the Hoyas have lost every game, and have amassed a 0-10 record.


Best meets worst as football tries for first win

If Georgetown football somehow manages to upset the Richmond Spiders this weekend, it will be the biggest upset in the history of college football. You can forget Appalachian State’s upset of Michigan in 2007, or Temple beating Virginia Tech in 1998. Yes, those games were spectacular, but neither of those teams was as bad as the Hoyas have been this season.


The big man is back and he’s better than ever

He’s back. To the delight of the Hoya faithful, Greg Monroe passed up NBA millions to return to the Hilltop for his sophomore season. He passed up a likely place as a lottery pick, an opportunity that many in his position would jump at. But Monroe doesn’t just want an opportunity to play professionally. He wants to succeed at the next level.


Football needs to talk it out

Every football fan can recall the image of the Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning lining up behind center in the no-huddle offense, directing his receivers with a plethora of hand-signals, head movements, and vocal commands over the cacophony of a sell-out crowd.


Senior DB looks to break up Hoyas’ losing ways

With six games left in his senior season, Georgetown defensive back Travis Mack has all the right answers.


Freshman QB takes the reins

After three straight losses to open the season, the Hoya faithful have already written off yet another Georgetown football season as a disappointment, even before midseason. Keeping in mind all the hustle, bustle, and boozing of Homecoming Weekend, the upcoming game against Howard seems to be just an afterthought in the minds of the campus community.


Time is running out for Georgetown football

A football game can often be decided by a team’s clock management, and Georgetown has certainly realized the importance of time this season.
