Should Mason pull the upset, do you think the floor will be rushed, or attempted to be rushed?

OK, I was hoping G Mas would beat UMass, but if I have to worry about witnessing a gay court storming then forget it...

Does anyone know the last time Mason hosted a Top 25 team at home? I can't remember in my 10+ years of fandom ever having a top 25 team come in.

They have a stud post player and a stud PG. We're screwed. Jenkins will have another solid game and Allen will get his 20 points, but still have some mind boggling plays along the way.

UMass: 74
GMU: 62

UMass 88
G Mas 66
Final

G Mas just doesn't have the talent/toughness to compete.

4 point lead at half (37-33) and lose 69 - 58. I hate to say it, but that just seems to be what we do. Hope I am wrong.

we will get our a** kicked this game. Kellog is from the OCM tree as he was an assitant here for several years. I'm sure he'll lay it on us. The 30 pt loss we thought vcu would give us is coming wed.

Why do I get the feeling you are rooting for this to happen? We all get you hated the hire, Hewitt sucks, you love Coach L, blah, blah, blah. It's obvious you're not happy unless you're unhappy, but try supporting your team even if you hate our coach.

Cue yet another Hewitt rant in 3...2...

How well versed is he in bird law?

Well as you're probably aware, The Migratory Bird Treaty Act of 1918 makes it illegal to capture, possess, or kill many species of birds, including hummingbirds, without a permit. Contrary to popular belief, it also applies to gulls, as gulls are also protected under the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

I don't think it's going to be that bad. They are prone to lapses just like we are and go as Chaz goes. Of I were Hewitt I would start our own Mighty Mouse, who won't be giving up any size to Williams and is our best on ball defender anyway.

We will probably lose, but it'll be a close game until they pull away late and win by about 15 as we foul trying I launch a late comeback.
