FGCU busts out chicken dance, winning big over SDSU

Florida Gulf Coast is probably headed to the Sweet 16, and they're dancing like chickens. I can't even

Florida Gulf Coast's team name is the Eagles, but they apparently have taken a different bird as their spirit being: the chicken.

That's Swiss point guard Cristophe Varidel with the strangest celebratory choice since, well, SDSU just five minutes ago.

Oh, and the Eagles lead by 18 with five minutes to go thanks to a 16-0 run. They're HAPPY: Fgculuck_medium

They look like they're going to be the first 15 seed ever to make the Sweet 16, where they'll face an in-state opponent in Florida, a matchup where nobody will be pulling for the Gators. America, we have our Cinderella, and they love poultry.
