Our love/hate relationship with ESPNU BracketBusters continues. Today, we heart BracketBusters again. The Rams have been matched up with Wichita State on Friday, Feb. 18 at 7 p.m. (ESPN2). Naturally, we heard rumors all day about St. Mary’s, which would have been a coup, but this is the next best thing. More than one person has made the George Mason/Wichita State comparison since the game was announced. That year, Mason went on the road – and beat – Wichita State, a game that was seen as critical to the Patriots’ at-large bid that season. Mason went onto the Final Four, defeating Wichita State again along the way. I’m not saying that the Rams are going to the Final Four (although, we can all dream), but if VCU continues to play well, that Wichita State game could loom large on the Rams’ at-large resume.
