"We Are Georgetown" T-Shirt Slogan Time!

Normally I'd be easing into my casual Hump Day with a bowl of coffee that I'd be drinking with a straw through my nose, but today I bring you this message with a sense of urgency. As you are aware, each year Hoya Blue comes up with a slogan to adorn the backs of the annual Hoya Hoop Club "We Are Georgetown" shirts that are without a doubt the most popular hoops-related shirts on campus each year. Usually the kids do a good job coming up with slogans that range from pretty casual to passable to not that embarrassing. HOWEVER, based on last season's atrocious 'Lie Down for No One" effort let...

An Open Letter to Katie Ledecky

Casual Hoya's senior student correspondent is back at it again. This time, he tries to swing a date with an Olympic swimmer by inviting her to join him at a Hoyas game. The following is a letter from a Georgetown student and regular Casual Hoya contributor addressed to Olympic gold medalist swimmer and DC-area native Katie Ledecky offering her a date at a Georgetown basketball game. The odds of her taking the author up on his offer may be slim, but that will not deter the author from trying and making a couple of jokes (including one out of himself) in the process. Dear Katie, My name is...

Jaren Jackson, Jr. Won’t Be Coming to Georgetown...and That’s Perfectly Fine

Jaren Jackson, Jr., one of the best players in the Class of 2017 and son of former Hoya and NBA player Jaren Jackson, has committed to Michigan State. ... S/O @TiptonEdits_ for the dope edit‼️ pic.twitter.com/ALcV2o4oUa— Jaren Jackson Jr. (@therealjnari_) September 15, 2016 Though the Hoyas were listed among the final five schools and Jackson visited campus just two weeks ago, it is widely suspected that Jackson would choose one of the other (and certainly more lame) Big 10 schools on his final list.

The Undefeated: Allen Iverson’s Hall of Fame Speech Could be Greatest in Sports History

Great piece RIGHT HERE by The Undefeated on Allen Iverson, who will be inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame this weekend. That gravitational pull has its source in the city that raised him and the state that claims him. You know this. His Hall of Fame speech will be played across the 757: on Granby Street in Norfolk, Jefferson Avenue in Newport News and dorm rooms at Hampton University. It figures to be the topic at every barbershop Saturday morning. In the six years since Iverson’s last NBA moment, and even longer since his last relevant one, it’s been building up to this. Lips...
