NCAA Roundup:All GMU, All The Time

• As exciting as the LSU-Texas and George Mason-Connecticut games were, the Florida-Villanova and UCLA-Memphis games were dogs. Particularly that last one; it had been a long time since we'd seen a team back into the Final Four. Not supposed to work that way.
• One of the more underpublicized facts of Glen "Big Baby" Davis? He has braces. That's fantastic. We wish all college basketball players had braces.
• Historically speaking, George Mason and George Washington were not exactly friends, which is apparently something that has leaked onto an on-court rivalry. It seems strange to be so fired up about men who wore powder wigs.
• The ESPN anchor just called this, "Glory Road without the social significance," which is like saying this site is like Pulitzer Prize-winning novel minus the Pulitzer, and the novel.
• We were talking to some Jewish friends of ours this weekend, and they're torn; they want to root for UCLA's Jordan Farmar, but they don't like the tattoos. Take your sports heroes where you can get them, friends.
• Congratulations to Dan Fearson, owner of the "Van Halen Rules" pick sheet in our tournament pool and your current leader. He didn't pick George Mason — no one in our pool did — but he did nail the other three Final Four teams. He has Florida over UCLA in the title game ... so he might be tough to beat.
