Villanova Cries Foul

I believe he got fouled.

Guessing this won't be the only such sign we'll see today. Some Georgetown student apparently got her hands on this sign and ripped it, forcing the Villanova fan to tape it back together.

"I guess they don't learn about destruction of property at Georgetown," one of this guy's friends said.

Incidentally, not to keep beating this drum, so to speak, but the George Mason band would send these two outfits to the band play-in game.

What gets lost in the discussion about that obvious foul was that the score was tied. I agree that the ref should have been mindful of the clock (And the players for that matter) and probably let the play go with no-call, but you cannot give the ball back to Villanova in that situation. Wallace was clearly bumped out of bounds. It's either a foul or a no-call.

'Nova fans need to get over it. It's really ridiculous at this point.

Are Nova fans still rolling out that tired "Georgetown players are thugs" thing? Have they forgotten about their own coke-addled 1985 championship team? Talk about throwing stones from glass houses.

Oh, and they lost to us, again, despite the refs' best efforts to hand them the game.

Suck it, Nova.

My policy is no stone throwing, regardless of housing situation.

That was me.... I ripped the poster. Let me explain the situation.

My good friend who is a loyal Hoya fan was being interviewed by a reporter. A Nova fan put the poster behind her on TV, so I simply pulled the poster out of the picture. The Nova fan fought back, and I, much like the Hoyas today, won the battle, and the poster was torn in the process.

Though it was not intentional, I would do it again for the sake of the Hoyas.
