They play the gators next, so of course I hope they countinue this magical run by beating the gators
The gators are overrated this year I can see them winning it if Ole Miss can bet the Gators
FGCU got screwed on their seed, and are proving that they should have been a higher seed by being the first 15 seed to advance to the sweet 16. If Enfield keeps this up next year they will be like the Butlers and Gonzagas of the mid majors unless he gets the call to a bigger program like FSU.
UF always seems to get an easy path in the post season (sometimes they make it difficult). They always draw a lesser BCS team in the bowl (Cincy, U of L). In baseball they have drawn Southern Miss for Super Regional and a #2 seed from regional upset. In basketball, the past two years, they have lucked out from faltering brackets. They avoided the #1 and #2 seed last year and the #2 seed this year and the #6 seed lost to the #11 seed.
If FGCU gets to the FF we need to hire Enfield as a HC in waiting or something. Damn he will be going to bigger and better things fast if he wants to.
They didn't win their conference.. The won the tournament so the seeding was ok.. That being said I hope they beat the brakes off Florida.. Looking to score sim tix to that game shortly!!
They've had a good season, no question. Let's see how they do next year before claiming Enfield the "next one" or GFCU the next Gonzaga/Butler. Those schools have been successful for years.
Enfield can identify talent. He also has a system that is fun for kids to play in. The school can sell itself with location. He can turn it into a very, very strong program in their current conference.

I loved how in the post game thing they were referencing FGCU's strong defense to Hamilton.
I love the way the team plays, literally everyone one I know is cheering for them. They are flashy and fast.
Thats the thing that I am kind of interested in, Enfield sold his company before coaching for 100 million dollars! That is twice FGCU's initial endowment ROFL.
He has a wife who could be making bank (don't know for sure though) and he gets to live in naples. I grew up in Naples and it is the perfect place for rich people to live lol. He has the money already and he gets to start a legacy at FGCU so who knows if he would even leave for a job like UCLA. I feel like he might for FSU because of prior connections.
Enfield was one of the main reasons we got Snaer. He used to fly all the way to Cali just to watch Snaer play, and Snaer loved that dedication.
Agree 100%. Let's see what he can do with getting his guys in the system and what type of results he gets.
