The Blogosphere's best source for the latest analysis and
commentary from the world of Georgetown Hoyas basketball.

I am posting this only becuase of the severity of the situation. It is very much a rumor. There have been reports that JTIII has informed the team that he may not return next year. This would, of course, be the result of DeGioia low-balling him in the contract negotiations. Again, this is a rumor and nothing more but with how Georgetown has managed the basketball program in the past, it would not be shocking. It might be worthwhile for the alumni who have not yet done so to contact President DeGioia on this issue. The silence out of 2nd floor Healy on this issue has been deafening.

i hope this is the most bogus of rumors, but it still makes me want to vomit. It makes me think that the administration is content with us being a mid-major type of school, one that can't afford good coaches.

How do alum contact the president's office?

Here is DeGioia's contact info:

President John J. DeGioia
Office of the President

37th & O Streets, NW
Washington, DC 20057

Tel: (202) 687-4134
Fax: (202) 687-6660

There is also an e-mail address listed on his old philosphy dept. website:

It is unclear whether he checks that or not. I sent an e-mail to it and have yet to hear anything back.

Low-balling JTIII makes no sense. Given the recent rise in GU's bball profile, any worthwhile replacement coach would likely demand pretty serious dough. Do they bring back Craig to coach Roy & Jeff's senior year (a joke that's not even funny).
