George Mason beats UConn for Final Four bid - 2006 NCAA Basketball Tournament - George Mason beats UConn for Final Four bid - Sunday March 26, 2006 7:41PM

That's certainly something very awesome to see. I drive past GMU every day going to and from work. I've known people that go to GMU. I've been on the GMU campus for concerts at the Patriot Center. Heck my High School Graduation ceremony was at the Patriot Center.


GMU means a lot to Northern Virginia. It's "our" University. Sure we've got Virginia Tech and the University of Virginia in state... but GMU is 100% local.

It's great to see a University that has "grown up" from a local Community College turn into something that could field a team that lands in the final four. From this point out it doesn't matter of GMU goes on to the finals or not (but it would be awesome if they did and took it all home). They've done something that depending on which stat you're looking at only 2 teams or 1 other team has ever done before. That's something that can't be taken away from them.

That's certainly hawesome, and certainly shows that dreams do come true.
