The more I learn about Florida Gulf Coast the more I love this team. Not only are they located in a predominately football state, which seems to have changed this year, but the school and how they got this far is incredible.
The team held open tryouts at the beginning of the season..wow. They didn’t even have a fully recruited team like 99% of the nation.
Their campus is located on the coast as the name mentions, but I mean it is right on the coast. Their dorms are on the beach, like I mean the foundation extends into sand.
They are the first ever 15 seed to make it to the sweet sixteen, and if they played how they did last night against San Diego State, I don’t see it being a problem for them making it to the elite eight.
Sherwood Brown is straight cash. The dude is unstoppable and can ignite in a second. He’s surrounded by extremely athletic players who can contribute in almost anyway possible.
I don’t even care that the single handedly blew up my bracket, I’m jumping in their bandwagon. FGCU-2013 NCAA Champs, you heard it here first.
