As I was leaving the practice court at the TAC on the day Georgetown introduced Ed Cooley as the new men’s basketball coach back in March, I got out two final questions once my three minutes of one-on-one-time had expired.
Will we talk to you before the first game in November?
Will we ever be back in this gym to watch a practice?
Without any hesitation Cooley gave a one-word, three-letter answer to both of my questions: “Yes.”
I had no reason not to believe him at that time but as the months have slowly gone by with Cooley as the lone name on Georgetown’s online roster the idea that I was the victim in another Hoyas version of Lucy pulling away the football situation began to gain traction in my head.
