    Well...it's not a very well known secret outside the Athletic Dept. and one that they've tried to completely hide w/the leaving of TOC and Larranaga, but the truth is there was an incident at the Final Four.

    The truth is Gunston was repeatedly sodomized and fisted after the MSU and UNC games. At first, it was thought that this was a revenge attack and Gunston was a victim.

    After the "Wichita Incident though, as it later became known as, it appeared to be a trend and the decision was made that certain proclivities made Gunston unsuitable as a University representative.

    To quote my buddy:
    I understand people dislike it and think that is ugly. I am asking why.

    Personally I think it would look better flipped so that the star is on the left side of the logo and 'Mason' name, but I understand that the victor in art usually moves from left to right hence the trail showing that directional movement.

    I believe the thinking goes like this: George Mason is the Patriots. Mel Gibson played "The Patriot." Mel Gibson also played William Wallace of the blue and white face paint ergo a green and gold face-painted Mel Gibson is a "Patriot."

    I think that looks fairly awful as a collegiate athletics logo.

    We need something that works at all sizes, so we need something simpler than these (the current logo has the same problems). The only one that might work is the one on the lower left.

    There was a rumor that they were going to name the mascot "Mel" at one point early on....

    Random groups of ppl were looking him up while watching him at Kenner. Some thought he graduated and went pro already from his game.

    Has anyone been this excited for the season to start before?

    Went to two Kenner games and agree. Jaire is my odds on favorite to pick up Moore's points.

    Probably more excitement before the 2010-2011 season, at least for me. That was the first "real reload" year with legit recruits post Final Four IMO with the 6 man class and KRAM being able to get to the floor together.

    Regardless, I suspect the enthusiasm will only grow if the team does well this year, as 2018-2019 should be real fun.

    Not speaking for anyone else, but a few years of Hewitt ball has made me truly appreciative of what it feels like to be optimistic and excited about the team's chances.

    Dave is building something for the long haul here. Unless something goes terribly wrong, this season should be just the beginning of the second golden era of Mason basketball.

    I will be surprised if both Jaire and Otis don't average at least 15 ppg this season. They've both worked their asses off. They're strong, confident and hungry to be great.

    Just looking at pictures it seems Otis looks 5 years older and much more muscle. He definitely hit us growth spurt LOL

    I thought the same thing too. They all looked a lot more jacked. Props to Handerahan and the rest of the strength and conditioning crew. Looks like all the Field House renovations and equipment upgrades paid its dividends.

    Had a chat with Otis and Grayer at Kenner with the ByGeorge guys. They said there is a emphasis from Paulsen on lifting more this off season to start the season in shape.
