An NCAA tournament game coming down to the wire with Gus Johnson on the mic? Naaahhh.....
(CBS' Seth Davis)

Closing in
Gus is yelling . . I mean George Mason is up 2 on Nova on TNT, under a minute.

Gus: Saves the day
Gus's first game is the only game that mattered today.

In Praise of Gus
Glad March Madness finally woke up and realized it was on. Took a swift kick in the #GUS to get things going.

I'm at the Q, which is shaking after Mason's victory, and I've got just one thing to say: It's on. It it so on.
( Post's Mike Wise)

From Gus himself
