The Wa Post runs an interesting article today about George Mason: What Happened to George Mason. See: http://www.washingtonpost.com/sports/colleges/what-happened-to-george-mason-basketball/2015/01/23/d1bc9ebe-a317-11e4-91fc-7dff95a14458_story.html

The article is, well ... about what happened to the George Mason b-ball program after the Final Four run "as a mid-major." No reference to the the Zags as a program that has clearly sustained itself among hoops' powers. I wonder: is our lack of mention (Butler and other so-called "mids" are discussed) rooted in the Zags' lack of a final four appearance or due to having graduated from "mid-major" talk?

More likely it would defeat the point of the article. That GM was a zephyr mid major that others can only aspire to. Either that or just crappy journalism. Yes, in the WP, now owned by Bezos.
