I did have UCLA from the beginning b/c of their bracket. Weren't George Mason specifically, and the Colonial in general, singled out by Nantz and Packer as not deserving of at-large bids? Nantz was emphatically disparaging GMU's schedule. Now look at what GMU did, they beat 2 teams who had players with championship rings (UNC & UConn) and another with players who made a Final Four (Michigan St.). The only other runs to the Final Four that I could match this with are UofA in '97, and 'Nova in '85. It's a tremendous job.

Also, a big shout out to VA men's basketball. Virginia Union DII 2005 champs and '06 runner-up. Virigina Weselyan DIII 2006 champs. GMU in the Final Four.
