    I prefer the Mason v.s. VCU rivalry. The one between Mason and GW seems pointless. The only reason behind the rivalry is- we’re pretty close to each other and share the same metro line.

      College rivalries are based off proximity and GW/GMU makes sense. I like what they are trying to build. Just because VCU is good doesn’t mean they are our rivals. They don’t consider us one ask their fans.

        Yeah I guess your right. Example Michigan and Michigan State. Duke and North Carolina. I spoke too soon.

    Our Mascot is stupid. Our Mascot should be George Mason and the students should be his patriots!

        I take that back. He’s actually pretty cool, but in the context that they’ve been showing him in this “revolutionary rivalry” next to George Washington he looks quite dumb.

          At least its not a furry green monster with a three corner hat. I don’t like how the entire face for our mascot is covered in green and gold “face paint”, but its a huge improvement from before the 2006 final four run.
