Georgetown vs. Maryland?
Let's just quote the headline from the lead story on the Old Spice Classic's Web site:
G-TOWN, MD, MICHIGAN STATE HEADLINE '08 DREAM FIELD
Hmmm. G-TOWN and MD in the same field. But that means....
Wash Times blogger: "OK, there's no deal in place to get Maryland and Georgetown to play during the regular season for the second time in nearly three decades. But it could happen in the Old Spice Classic in November."
Balt Sun blogger: "Just from a standpoint of a good local story, I would love to see Maryland play Georgetown, something that hasn't happened during the regular season since 1994."
Wash Post blogger: Do you know how many jokes I'm going to receive from Atlantic 11 poll voters next year linking Old Spice with Gary Williams's perspiration? And the last time these teams played, wasn't it in Anaheim. And now on to Orlando? What's next, an Animatronic meeting inside Epcot's Spaceship Earth?
Seriously, we'd all appreciate it very much, Old Spice people, if you could make this matchup happen. We promise that we'll all fly down to Orlando for this game. Or at least watch it intently on television. All you have to do is provide NASA-quality geo-political maps proving that Orlando is exactly the same number of furlongs from both College Park and M Street, and no one should have a problem. Thanks.
Hoya fan: "Watch us somehow not get to play the Twerps because of how the brackets shake out and they say we're ducking them...."
Maryland fan: "I would love to beat Georgetown badly. Hopefully we get a shot at them."
Hoya fan: "Looks like a great field (UMCP excepted)."
