    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.

    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."

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
