The Florida Gulf Coast Eagles are the talk of the NCAA Tournament.
They took down No. 2 seed Georgetown in the first round. Convincingly.
Then, they became the first No. 15 seed in NCAA Tournament history to move on to the Sweet 16, following their beat-down on San Diego State.
Both games ended up being 10-point FGCU victories.
Both felt a lot more lopsided than a 10-point margin.
FGCU enrolled its first student in 1997, meaning the school is younger than all of its athletes.
Its head coach opted out of a million-dollar job on Wall Street because he wanted to be a head coach. Also, his wife is a former fashion model, so worst case scenario was he stinks at coaching but still has a supermodel wife. Turns out he’s pretty good.
Any more you need to know?
Just one thing: they love the chicken dance.
Highlights of the FGCU run are below. For those of you who understandably just want to see the chicken dance, here you go.
