What single moment stands out to you the most from the 2005-06 season?
Watchin Tony Skinn grin as he shot his final free throws in the UNC game. Friggin awesome!!

Tell about your experiences during the Kryptonite Kids' magical run through the tournament:
I remember watchin our Patriots play all season. Going to games and watching us defeat opponent after opponent. I started to think, man, these guys are really good. I never expected an at-large bid in the tournament, but definitely thought we deserved it. Then, once the tournament started, I never thought we'd win the first game, needless to say make it to the
Final Four. But week in, and week out, you guys kept it going. Man, I've never been this excited about college basketball (or any sport other than football for that matter) in my life. You guys made a believer outta me and outta the rest of the country. You guys are America's Team. GMU FINAL 4! Enough said. We may not have won it all, but hey, you guys still made is more proud than I ever woulda thought. Thanks for the ride guys. We will never forget!

What do you think this moment means for George Mason University?
Infinite possibilities. Could we finally have some recruiting power? Will mid-majors finally get respect? Will Mason finally be recognized as a great school? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
