Tonight at 9:00 PM cst, the Ohidaho Feud breathes new life! For those of you that are unaware, meaning you weren't in H4Y two years ago, this was a messy encounter every year. Fever and I would go to outlandish lengths to insult and berate each other. Plenty of hate and animosity in these bad boys.... Here's a look at some of the past encounters leading up to the game.
I searched for a picture of a Hoya and this is all that came up.
This bring back memories for anyone?
Full Moon Fever , I actually don't know what a Hoya is...
Being the Harvard among us, I'll take the next few minutes of my otherwise completely unproductive Tuesday to enlighten you about your school.
It goes back a long way. Students at Georgetown in the early 1800's were required to study classical languages (Greek and Latin). At the time, the university's teams were known as the Stonewalls. One of those brainy Georgetown students made a play on words from the Latin language and their Stonewall moniker and came up with the term/cheer/yell, "Hoya Saxa." While Saxa is translated as rocks, or small stones, there's some disagreement about the term Hoya. Most, though, translate it to "what" but for the purposes of the cheer, it kind of takes on a "that which" meaning. So Hoya Saxa caught on and became the rallying cry for the poor bastards that couldn't get into Harvard and had to go to Georgetown. (Hey, it's better than shooting for Penn and ending up at Maricopa). Needing a mascot, Georgetown went through a few dogs before settling on an English bulldog. Named Jack.
So truth be told, Hoya is just a Latin word for "what" or "that which."
....and.....edited for going too far.
That was a nice trip down memory lane.
The Georgetown What's....Not quite the same ring to it... Either way, last time this rivalry reared it's head it ended in a 45-14 beating for you Fever. Get ready for another.
Harvard fans at their finest:
Obviously, it was so surprising and rare that two years later you still remember the exact score. I couldn't recall any of the scores from the times I took your little birdies behind the woodshed.
I believe that was from my game against -Cougars-
God's honest truth, when I coached at Southlake we had more fans there for our 7th grade games.
Also, I just want to say that I've never heard that Reunited song. That's a quality tune. Good find Qwon.
I didn't remember, it was in the Conference Address I had in there.
So the Hoyas are the Ivy League equivalent to the Hokies
And Golden Potatoes all the way!
Hahaha I forgot I told you guys that Katy Perry went to my church when I was younger
also, Harvard by 14
That hurts DirtyCash... Have we not learned by now that The Qwon can rise to the occasion?
I don't think anyone picked me to beat you, but I did.
yeah but we're terrible, Fever isn't.
Don't lump me in with you... I didn't lose to Crumb.
What do you expect, it's a basketball school...LOL
