An Alma Mater Double?

Congrats to the George Mason Patriots for their Cinderella run to the Final Four. Many of us (MA 1987, PhD 1990) here on L&P have GMU connections, not to mention HNN our host.

I might have the ultimate double, however. My undergraduate alma mater, the University of Michigan (AB 1985) is in the final four of the "other" college basketball tournament, the NIT. By a week from tomorrow, I could be the graduate of both tournament champion schools!

Of course should Mason make the championship game, I, along with a good number of other Mason economists and econ alums, will be in Las Vegas at the APEE conference when they play. I can think of no better environment to watch that game than with a bunch of Masonites at the sportsbook at one of the Strip hotels.

Steve, I have double too--my 3-time alma mater LSU is in the Final Four twice. Suffa, Texas, Suffa.
