This is a blog dedicated to all the teams in the tounrament proving that Billy Packer is a blow hard, know nothing, ass. For those of us who happened to take the time to catch a few games from the Mid-Majors (including the MVC), we know how good these schools are. So spread the word.

So Long, Farewell...

It was a heck of a Tournament for some of the smaller schools. George Mason's historic run, the MVC sticking two teams in the Sweet 16 (Wichita State and Bradley) and a couple of first round wins by Northwestern State and Montana.

It was fun to watch these schools stick it to Billy Packer. Maybe now, he will get the college basketball package offered by ESPN so he can watch some MVC games (and some of the other conferences as well).

Maybe we'll get lucky and CBS will realize soemthing that many people have know for quite some time, that he isn't really very good, and we can get a new head color analyst. I like Jay Bilas, but I'd be open to other people as well. Anyone else have a suggestion?

So I would like to say thank you to the people who stopped by and especially to those who made a comment or sent an email. Until next year when that first jump ball goes up, I bid you a fond farewell.

George Mason-Florida, Let's Get It On!

So much has been said about this George Mason teams run to the Final Four. But now it is time for the talking to stop and the playing to commence. I think an article from the Official George Mason website says it best in it's lead, when it states:

"Is there anything left to be said about the George Mason men's basketball team? In the past three weeks, more than 1,000 stories have appeared in more than 100 newspapers around the world. More than 10,000 questions have been asked of the 14 players, three assistant coach and one head coach. On Saturday night, the only question that truly matters will finally be answered."

I think that sums up things pretty well. George Mason game notes.

One very interesting thing in tonight's game, all 10 projected starters average scoring in double figures. That's not all that common. Florida Game notes.

It will be interesting to see how the Patriots deal with the Gator's size inside. Florida starts 6-11 Joakim Noah, 6-9 Al Horford, and 6-8 Corey Brewer. Then again, they handle UConn's size pretty well.

I'm ready for tip-off. How about you?
