Georgetown Is Mysteriously Getting Rid Of Its Bulldog Mascot [Update]

Jack the Bulldog retired this spring after 10 years of representing Georgetown as its mascot. Last year, the school brought in Jack Jr., or J.J.—a precious little Bulldog pup who would be the "mascot-in-training," and take over for the start of basketball season in the fall. But today it was announced that J.J. will… » 7/31/13 3:01pm 7/31/13 3:01pm

Otto Porter Jr., Georgetown's Mr. Indispensable

Take a look at the star players on each of the college basketball teams ranked in the top five this week, and you'll notice a common pairing: Gonzaga's Kelly Olynyk has Elias Harris. Indiana's Victor Oladipo has Cody Zeller. Kansas's Ben McLemore has Jeff Withey. Duke's Seth Curry has Mason Plumlee (and now Ryan… » 3/08/13 12:20pm 3/08/13 12:20pm

Throughout Its Storied History, Georgetown-Syracuse Has Featured Some…

This afternoon marks the last time Georgetown will ever play in Syracuse while both are members of the Big East. A rivalry that began in 1980 and has been one of the game's most reliably entertaining for years, Orange and Hoya fans alike packed the Carrier Dome today and sent the teams off with the best attendence of… » 2/23/13 5:35pm 2/23/13 5:35pm

This Photo Of The Georgetown And Butler Bulldogs Is Just The Cutest…

The Georgetown Hoyas and Butler Bulldogs each have a pair of adorable bulldog mascots. Today, Georgetown Jack and Georgetown Jack Jr. welcomed Butler Blue 2 and Bulter Blue 3 (Butler Blue 1 is apparently dead retired. Sad face.) to their campus for a summit of adorability. That's how we got the picture above, which… » 2/08/13 11:59am 2/08/13 11:59am

Georgetown Beats Louisville In Game That Was 24 Seconds Longer Than…

Fifth-ranked Louisville dropped its third consecutive game today to Georgetown in what was a one-possession struggle for the final six minutes of action. Those final six minutes, strangely, were actually a bit more than that; the clock inexplicably stopped at 6:07 and stayed that way for 24.37 seconds. As far as we… » 1/26/13 2:48pm 1/26/13 2:48pm

This Is The Face Of A Man Who Earned His First Technical Foul In Six…

Georgetown coach John Thompson III earned his first technical in six years last night, reacting to a questionable foul call on Nate Lubick in the second half of an embarrassing home blowout loss to Pitt. The 19th-ranked Hoyas fell to 0-2 in the Big East with a 73-45 loss to the Panthers, but it was the… » 1/09/13 9:00am 1/09/13 9:00am

Georgetown And Tennessee Missed The Record For Lowest Scoring Game Of…

Ah! So close. Back in 2008, Rick Majerus's St. Louis Billikens scored 20 points (and held George Washington to 49 points, so that was a plus) in their first conference game of the season, meaning the teams combined for 69 during the contest. Last night, Georgetown and Tennessee came perilously near to finishing below… » 12/01/12 9:15am 12/01/12 9:15am

Despite Taking Top-Ranked Indiana To Overtime, This Georgetown Fan Had…

Indiana dispatched Georgetown last night 82-72, but not without a bit of trouble. The Hoosiers were unable to put away the Hoyas in regulation, and needed the extra five minutes to keep their undefeated season going. Even in the best moments of Georgetown's night, though, it seems there was one fan who had some rage… » 11/21/12 9:00am 11/21/12 9:00am

Jack, The Georgetown Bulldog, May Need Knee Surgery

At eight years old, Jack is no spring chicken. But he recently injured his leg jumping to the couch, and is going for a second opinion to see if surgery will be required. Not a great day for the Hoyas, who won a tournament bracket based on tuition. Not a great day for Jack, because he's a Bulldog and is genetically… » 3/13/12 1:55pm 3/13/12 1:55pm
