The day's half over, and we haven't even mentioned George Mason yet. Time to rectify that.

First off, a look at George Mason the university, an analysis of just what life at a commuter school is like and why George Mason is not just a harbinger of changing times on the court, but off.

But that's not the best part. Turns out that George Mason's president is pulling a Spike Lee and encouraging professors to give students a pass if they happened to miss class Monday. "As you know, lots of our undergraduates had an exciting time yesterday in response to the basketball victory," said provost Peter Stearns. "Without in any way wishing to distort our priorities, I write to urge a bit of leniency in response to any absences from undergraduate classes today. Thanks for your understanding."

Stearns has gotta be having one hell of a week. Talk about stumbling across a goldmine.
