A long-distance dedication from Jerry on Long Island to Jim in Fairfax!

Enjoy your freelance “writing” opportunities while you can, Jim. (Oh and let me beat the paste-eaters and those who like to start fake Twitters to the punch: I suck so much that Jim Larranaga is getting bylines and I’m not) As of this weekend, you’re no longer the last coach to lead a mid-major to the Final Four and America is no longer in search of the next George Mason.

Sure, we know there’s a difference between what you did and what Butler did, but most of America won’t get it (just like it didn’t get the real story four years ago, but that’s neither here nor there). I, for one, look forward to Brad Stevens’ future freelance writing opportunities. Hope you cherished those 15 minutes, Jim! Tick, tock, tick, tock…

Jesus Man, I hope for your sake, Tim Welsh turns out a decent coach and can get HU in the NCAA tournament.
Seeing all this jealousy towards GMU is starting to get a little old and tiring.
Are you like this because some guy got hit in the balls by other guy?

Good stuff. GMU's 15 minutes are sooooooooo finished. I expect they'll take down the final four banner soon.

So when does spring FB practice start? I think Hofstra is gonna bounce back strong this year.


Hugh Akston is a terrible human being and most Mason fans hate his guts. His children also hate him.
