    I went to the website just to see how many players we'll see and I saw the roster. One person, Jack Tempchin, is #21. Nobody, and I mean nobody, should ever wear #21 again at Mason. That is, unless Jack is going to be the A10 POY three years in a row. Hopefully that's a typo or an oversight by some intern.

    I don't think 22, 32, 11, or 43 should be issued again. But I definitely think #21 shouldn't.

    I definitely agree- maybe reach out to Brad and ask him about it? I can't help but think he'd agree that the player who is considered to be the best player in Mason history should have his number unofficially retired.

    All 5 starters from the Final 4 team should have their numbers retired. Other than Evans and Yates, they are collectively the greatest players in our program's history and should be recognized as such.

    I've mentioned on twitter before how EBA needs a ring of honor and Brad Edwards liked it.

    I don't want a ring of honor, I want jerseys hanging from the rafters like big schools do.

    We are a big school. Biggest in the state. Bad thing is we still need training wheels on in some depts.

    Big program. Heck, our volleyball team has a jersey hanging from the rafters (or on the wall, for the literal).

    You want jersey's hanging from the rafters??? Are you serious??? Don't you know the roof is about to cave in at EBA??? When we looked at putting a jumbotron in, they said the roof couldn't even hold a fly....much less a jumbotron aka jersey. ;)

    Let's just take down the VCU banner and put "Evans 21" in its place.
