The good thing about this tournament is that Mason could go far and possibly win the whole thing. Bad part is they don’t get a crack at a BCS team like they typically do in these tournaments.

Hopefully we are only in a smaller tournament like this because of the coaching staff change and the new staff wasn’t in early enough to get a better invite.
