We want FGCU right?
Just thinking the same thing
Yes. We handled George Mason after they won 4 games, we can handle FGCU after they win 2.
Yes. They are basically NWST with hops.
FGCU doesn't have much size inside. Murphy and Young could dominate.
I'll take either. San Diego State's resume is straight garbage; I can't believe they're a 7 seed.
Franklin is dangerous though.
If we take care of ourselves, we will be able to beat either. SDSU is more talented but FGCU has the magic.
Magic runs out though.
I agree. We stopped Mason
Not so sure i want FGCU, these guys are a bunch of Florida boys, im sure they would love to upset the big dogs in state (they already beat Miami).
From a match up standpoint im not sure which team we want, but you guys are saying FGCU.
They beat Miami early in the year @ FGCU.
They lost @ Duke by 21.
Upsets over Georgetown and Miami, they won't be afraid of the Gators and I imagine they will feel some state pride on the line as they knocked off Miami.
FGCU is playing well right now, we will have our hands full.
Correct. People will say "Miami was missing guys" but they actually had most of their team including ACC POY. FGCU beat them straight up.
They did lose by 20 to Duke but played with them for a good while, at Cameron.
They took down Georgetown pretty close to their campus.
They are afraid of NO ONE, so they won't be afraid of us.
If we don't treat this game like we are playing sUK for the national title, we will lose. We better be ready
Donovan usually get his guys ready in the Tournament.
I think our players will hear enough about them in the media to be motivated.
and the entire stadium will be against us.....will be Nation vs #GATORNATION .....everybody loves a cinderella / underdog
FGCU will probably lose some momentum and the game this week might be their first ever inside a huge dome. As we saw with GMU, they couldn't shoot inside the old RCA Dome.
They are athletic, could give us some trouble. Florida will have to play some great defense.
I agree with this. Especially because they're in our state.
This is 1999 Gonzaga. At least we won't be hearing Gus Johnson say "The slipper still fits!"
That's what UF does best, play defense.
We're going to need our guards to step up on D and our bigs to step up on O if we want to win this game.
And they sure as hell want the Gators!! Andy said he tried to scrimmage the Gators earlier in the year, but was not successful getting a game!! Said he's got a real one now!!
Id rather san diego state won...we just became the road team vs them because the whole stadium will be rocking for the cinderella story. But seriously...they are a fifteen seed...I don't buy it. But would rather play San Diego state...too late now.
Let me say this though.
John Thompson three is complete trash in the tourney as has been SDSU's coach lately.
I'll take Donovan outcoaching a 29 year old in his first tourney any single day of the week.
long hashtag....deal with it.

We thought Brando was bad tonight? Just wait. Announcers will be slobbering on FGCU.
I agree that they may have extra incentive playing against the elite team from their state, but their momentum may take a turn having to wait a week. They'll get to head home, get to have everyone pat them on the back and basically subconsciously tell them that theyve already won.... I like us against anyone, so it shouldnt really matter, only difference is the sd state looks terrible right now and will hav alot of travel going on in the next four days.
Beatings will continue until morale improves
