Well if you get into March Madness at all (and if you don't you may as well join Al Queda and call it a day) you know that Florida Gulf Coast basically won the weekend. Just going 'Mayhem' all over people's brackets! I mean a 15 seed? 15?! These are the Goomba teams. These are the teams that should get crushed like a beer bong hitting Frank the Tank's lips. These are the wrestler's that start in the ring and use their actual, legal name. They shouldn't be in the Sweet 16! And not only did they win they flat out DOMINATED. Alley-oop dunks, draining 3's, just all over the court. It looked like a crew from Rucker Park vising a Catholic prep school or something. Hell I thought the And One mixtape guy was going to pop out of the crowd screaming 'OHHHHH BABBBEEEYYYYY!' Just classic stuff. And the best part is this school has only had a basketball program since 1997! Which in my brain is like 5 years ago*! The only school mad about FGCU is probably LaSalle. Like any other year a 13 seed in the Sweet 16 is headline news. Now it's barely in the first segment of Sportscenter. But, again, that's why those last 4 days are some of the best in sports. FGCU, Wichita State (just guessing they're AJ Hawk's favorite team), Oregon and Lasalle all in the final 16. Not even Biff Tannon and his Sports Almanac had that. Only downside to the weekend was with all the close games we had no Gus Johnson game winning calls. And instead we have Doug Gottlieb on color commentary. Downgrade city, population: America.
*I can't be the only one who thinks like that right? Like when someone says 'Oh that happened like 10 years ago' I think they're talking about 1992.
PS: CBS kept on showing a smokebomb blond during the Georgetown/FGCU game. I just assumed it was a random hot fan but it turns out it's head coach Andy Enfield's wife!
Sound the alarm! Where's Brent Musberger when you need him!
Double PS: This was a pic tweeted out from an FGCU player. View from his dorm room. Looks like friekin' Del Boca Vista! I mean how easy is a recruiting trip for a top player? Show them this, a Sweet Sixteen banner and introduce them to your wife. 1960's style UCLA dynasty in no time flat.
