A Blue Power Ranger, Poet, Physicist, and Miss Virgina All Have Something in Common

Typically when a college team excels in the postseason, you get a plethora of famous alumni cheering them on or attending their games. Seriously most of them could care less who wins. They just want to be associated with what's cool and hip. So which famous George Mason alumni is going to be leading the overcrowded bandwagon this week?

George Mason might have some serious game on the court but they need work on their alumni list. It's a list of "who??" and more "huh??". Be prepared to be wowed.

  • Anna E. Cabral, Treasurer of the United States. Part of the law school class of 2007.
  • Hala Gorani, News Anchor, CNN International.
  • Brian van de Graaff, Meteorologist, ABC 7 News.
  • Archie Kao, Actor.
  • Mike Kohn, Olympic Athlete.
  • Karl Rove, White House Senior Domestic Policy Advisor (attended from 1973-1975).
  • Susan Rook, Former News Anchor, CNN & CNN Talkback Live.
  • John Wilburn, Managing Editor, Houston Chronicle.
  • Debora J. Wilson, President, The Weather Channel.
  • Chris Widger, Baseball Player, Chicago White Sox.
  • William Winfree, Ph.D., Physicist.
  • Rebecca Wee, Poet.
  • Muna Abu-Sulayman, United Nations Goodwill Ambassador.
  • Kristi Lauren Glakas, Miss Virginia Teen USA 1999, Miss Virginia USA 2004, Miss Virginia 2005, 3rd-runner-up to Miss America.
  • Rob Muzzio, 2-Time NCAA Division I Decathlon Champion (GMU's 1st NCAA Div. 1 Champion 1984)& 5th, 1992 Olympic Games.

I know no one could match names with faces if there was a police lineup. The biggest name on the list is Karl Rove and I would say most people have no idea who he is. Actor Archie Kao was the Blue Power Ranger and now is on CSI: Las Vegas. It's a weak lineup. Most of those names just seem like fillers to make it seem like they have a lot of famous alumni. Meteorologist? Managing editor of the Houston Chronicle? Where's the guy who manages a local Starbucks?

Can you imagine these alums calling up George Mason hitting them up for tickets to the Final 4? I think they'd get hung up on if Snoop Dog called up looking for tickets.
