Florida Gulf Coast, a beautiful campus on the beach of the Gulf of Mexico located in Ft. Myers, Florida, became America’s darling after upsetting Georgetown Friday night, leading by as many as 19 points, becoming just the seventh 15-seed in NCAA history to win a NCAA Tournament game and as I post this, they are on the verge of becoming the first 15-seed to make it to the Sweet 16. Not bad for a school that was granted full Division 1 status just 591 days ago and had to go D1 because no D2 conference wanted them. Wow.
The official FGCU Twitter account sent out the tweet heard ’round the world.
I can’t wait for the next edition.
