When you make history like the boys from Florida Gulf Coast University have it is understandable that the fan base get a little cocky and maybe even arrogant. The national attention has to be pretty cool, although I would question making the school too popular; that awesome beach might have a few too many dudes on it next semester...

Before Florida Gulf Coast University shocked us all by beating the University of Georgetown, if someone would’ve mentioned FGCU, our collective response would’ve been, “FGCU who?” Yet, when the Eagles knocked out the Hoyas by playing shutdown defense, going on large runs, and high flying dunks, they earned the attention of a nation; only to follow...
