Pick Your Own George

Comparing Non-Conference Hoops Schedules, September 7 Edition:

(Holla if you love the fact that college basketball is spelled incorrectly in the categories menu.)

(And has there ever been a better time to like the Georges: one heading toward a top-10 season, one coming off a top-10 season, and the last coming off a trip to the Final Four.)

Anyhow, this place (the sports section) is crammed with GW and Georgetown grads who, today, were taking turns debating the comparative weakness of their teams' OOC schedules. Plus, the author of the area's best blog by a pro sports owner recommended I up the Hoyas quotient (I forgot to mention them in my introductory post). So, we compare:

What-Were-They-Thinking Game
Georgetown: Winston-Salem State (years in Division I: zero)
George Washington: Kennesaw State (years in Division I: one)
George Mason: Florida International (times Coach Sergio Rouco said he could kick better than his players can shoot: at least once.)
Advantage: George Mason

Duke Game
Georgetown: December 2
George Washington: 74-61, Duke
George Mason: December 9
Advantage: Not GW

Best Non-Duke Road Game
Georgetown: At Michigan (Tommy Amaker, eighth best h.s. athlete in Northern Region history)
George Washington: At Southern Cal (whose football team had as many wins as EIGHT of GW's OOC opponents last season)
George Mason: At Creighton (Someone tell Gary Williams.)
Advantage: Um, not GW

Most Interesting Home-ish Game
Georgetown: Old Dominion (Someone link me on the CAA board.)
George Washington: Va. Tech in the BB&T
George Mason: Wichita State, home opener, ESPN2
Advantage: George Mason

Sub-290 RPI Opponents
Georgetown: James Madison, Navy
George Washington: Dartmouth, Longwood, Maryland-Eastern Shore, UMBC
George Mason: [sound of futile paper shuffling]
Advantage: George Mason

Most Outraged Msgboarder
Georgetown: "The Hoyas will easily have the single worst out of conference home schedule of any top ten team.
George Washington: "I don't think any honest person can defend what [AD Jack] Kvancz has done with the schedule over the past couple of years; it's just sickening and the students and supporters of the university deserve far better."
George Mason: "I think I'm gonna pass out. This is too much for me....If we can actually win 20 games this year, attendance should be off the hook!"
Advantage: George Washington

Damn, and I thought this post would be about a selection between Jeff George and Eddie George.

Sure would be good to settle the Battle of the Georges on the court.
