That's why we're all mid-major hoop fans...that game right thereNU Hoop Fan said:Wow, someone pinch me.

I agree that they can win it all......it's shocking that we can say that with a straight face.Will said:GMU is the better team. They deserved to win the whole way. They have great balance and played as a more cohesive unit than UConn did.
I wouldn't be shocked if they won it all. Their guards are smart and crafty. Their inside players get the job done, and they all play as a team.
I'm not sure if it has actually happened. I know Larry Bird took Indiana State to the National Championship game (only to lose to Magic Johnson's Michigan State). Also I know San Francisco won a couple national titles a long time ago.. however I don't think they were considered mid-major at the time (they had Bill Russell on their team).bosiydid said:How big would it be for a mid-major to win the whole thing?

This would be amazing. It will certainly be a boost to mid-major programs and will start scaring the big boys. If they can do it, it will give hope to every team that enters the tournament. :banana: :gbanana:bosiydid said:How big would it be for a mid-major to win the whole thing? Has it ever happened?
