Regarding Our New Name

The Influence Peddler is temporarily adopting a new name: The Hoya Zone. It will carry this name until Tuesday, April 3, by which time the Georgetown University men's basketball team will have won its second national title - behind the skilled play of Roy Hibbert and Jeff Green, and under the leadership of John Thompson III.

All contributors to the site formerly known as the Influence Peddler are Georgetown graduates. We're confident of a victory over North Carolina in the East regional, and whoever happens to make it to the Final Four.

We invite you to sit back and enjoy a great tournament, even if you already know the outcome.

And for your viewing pleasure, we offer two (wildly different) musical tributes to The Big Dance:

** We reserve the right to return to our former name at a date earlier than April 3, without prior notice.

I normally condemn nepotism on principle, but I am grudgingly forced to concede that JTIII does actually seem to know how to coach.
