Billy Packer, April Fool

There's no big April Fools hijinks planned for this year, only a wish... My wish is that Billy Packer has to eat an April Fools Day helping of crow, courtesy of the most unlikely Final Four team ever...


In what has to make the hearts of Florida fans sink just a little bit, it was reported this evening that Packer is firmly on the Gator bandwagon.

George Mason's coach Jim Larranaga should thank his lucky stars for Packer's continued disrespect of his Patriots - on Selection Sunday he famously questioned their inclusion in the field of 65 teams. They've already beat the best team in college basketball (Connecticut) and last years national champions (North Carolina) during their improbable run at immortality. I little more Packer enmity might propel them two more games...

I think George Mason did a fantastic job and I give them their props. I'm not whining, but as a Carolina fan I must protest a little. When you said they beat last year's National champions, there's a correction in order. You may not remember that half of last year's team left early for the draft. We did better than expected, but it certainly wasn't the same "championship team". Now as for Duke (or Dook as we say down here) They have no excuse. hehe

Hahahaha, even with that albatross I seriously doubt that GM is going to the final. Then again, I could be wrong... we shall see later today.

Just another Gator fan expressing my $0.02.

As a Wichita State alumnus I'm a little upset that it is George Mason and not WSU represeting the mid-majors. However, the team had a great season and I'm glad one mid-major is in the final four to make Billy eat crow.
