Gonzaga takes on Florida State University on Thursday to earn a spot in the Elite Eight, but the university’s law school has already emerged as a big winner in this year’s NCAA March Madness basketball tournament.

Dean Jacob Rooksby and about 50 law students made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week to help prove the existence of the university. Yes, you read that right. You see, Kimmel has been joking on air about the fact that he doesn’t believe Gonzaga University actually exists, and that it’s an imaginary campus intended only to win basketball games. He has apparently raised the hackles of some in Spokane, Washington, who are vigorously defending the reality of the university.
