    I'm with you on that one, Joe. I have to 50-inch TVs side by side in my basement and still haven't figured out how I'm going to juggle all three games tomorrow night.

    GMU will have to attain "Gonzaga of the East" status to make this untrue. Though what competes with the 'Zags for attention in Eastern Washington?

    MANASSAS, Va. — What if you could know whether you had suffered a concussion — without any shadow of a doubt, and in just minutes — simply by spitting in a tube?


    As the scope of potential short- and long-term damage from brain injuries in football becomes clearer every day, the mad scramble is on to try to address the crisis, which threatens the very existence of the sport.


    And while the leading chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, research at Boston University has made the most headlines, two scientists at George Mason University have been working on a potentially groundbreaking diagnostic tool that could change the way we test for and treat brain injury across the sports world and beyond.

    The way brain injuries are treated and managed is a nascent and evolving science, with the effectiveness of stopgap protocols being called into question on nearly a weekly basis during the football season. So, while the findings of the joint project between Dr. Shane Caswell, an athletic trainer, and Dr. Emanuel “Chip” Petricoin, a proteomics expert, are still a ways from translating to a marketable product, they shed new insight into a field that many are only beginning to understand.

    Coming from entirely different sides of research at George Mason, Caswell and Petricoin may never have met if not for a chance encounter at a social event put on by the university to try to draw a pharmaceutical company to Prince William County back in 2011. Each heard the other speak about their work and both realized there might be an opportunity to work together across disciplines.

    It would take a month of miracles for Lehigh to win it all, but only 40 minutes to ruin Duke’s dreams (2012). Bucknell can send Kansas packing (2006). George Mason can leave big-name bodies (Michigan State, North Carolina, UConn) in its wake crashing the Final Four (2006). Jacksonville can play mighty UCLA for a national title (1970).

    Never gets old!

    Hey, does anyone have a good copy of Mason's 2011 NCAA game vs Villanova? If you do, is it possible to make a copy and hand it off to me? Please PM.

    Hah - I watched this last night too. My girlfriend thought I was crazy for cheering and pacing around like it was a live game. I still can't believe we won.

    I watched in my darkened basement - beer in hand and pants around ankles. Great stuff.

    I think the full game is on YouTube. Otherwise I think the NCAA sells games. Of course the Luke shot is on YouTube.

    The MCI Center has been open for well over 20 years now believe it or not. I remember being there and saying to myself and others around me, that I had never heard that place so loud. It's still got to hold true considering the lack of any real success by the Caps and Bullets and their limited fan bases. That place was off the hook that Sunday afternoon.

    Well, that answers the question, is Pikapp still alive? He apparently has been living in the bunker, drunk, and masterbating while watching young men running up and down the court.

    I am not sure I want to know where Vurbel is.
