By now everyone knows Florida Gulf Coast is the first 15 seed to make it to the Sweet 16. Today, in the Wall St. Journal, there is a neat story about FGCU's history and links to Big Ten programs.
I don't know if a subscription to the WSJ is required to read, but here's a link.
Most interesting quote for M fans (referring to the first coach at the school):
As for the actual brand of basketball, Balza coached what he knew, and what he knew was Michigan's 1989 national championship team. He was a student manager under Steve Fisher, who served as his primary reference for the FGCU job. Today, the Big Ten boasts four teams in the Sweet 16 and is known for its bruising inside play, stifling defense and molasses-in-January pace—basically the exact opposite of Florida Gulf Coast. But in 1989 the conference boasted some of the highest-scoring teams in the nation, including Michigan.
Balza wanted his team to be a shameless imitation of that Wolverines team: In the years before they became full Division-I members in 2011-2012, it wasn't uncommon for the Eagles to blow past 100 points in a game.
There's also info about the former athletic director (retired MSU AD Merrily Dean Baker) and connections to Ohio (for those that don't know, Urban Meyer's daughter is a volleyball player for FGCU).
Overall, a pretty good read.
