George Mason made their name when as the Cinderella story of the 2005-2006 NCAA basketball season.
During the NCAA tournament, they beat perennial big fish and No. 2-ranked UConn. The thrilling overtime win allowed George Mason to reach the Final Four.
This has since put the school and the program into the spotlight. They gained national attention and become a household name.
The school’s basketball program gained the respect and built the reputation that they deserve.
So when you come across a video of the Patriots' Midnight Madness, you understand why you want to get behind the team.
The students have a blast as they prepare for another season, even if they will not be the Cinderella story now that they are on the national stage, and this is something to party about.
Their band plays “Party Rock,” and the floor erupts with different choreography. It becomes quite the site.
The conductor bounces around and becomes a person of interest. Watch how he moves in the opening seconds.
George Mason will likely have another strong squad and will give their fans something to rock about, and the song will be a consistent theme for the team as they run through the Colonial Athletic Association.
The Patriots will gain another NCAA tournament birth, and we will see if they are still rocking come March.
