Florida Gulf Coast is pretty excited about going to the Sweet 16

15th-seeded Florida Gulf Coast is known for its exciting style of play and crazy antics during games. Now see what happens when the Eagles hold a pep rally.

We've already seen the antics of 15th-seeded Florida Gulf Coast on the court. The Eagles ran, dunked and Chicken Danced their way to two major upsets last week and are in the Sweet 16 looking for more. So to get their fans pumped up for their game Friday night against Florida, it shouldn't surprise anyone that they held a pep rally you all wish you could have attended.

CBS gave us a glimpse of the action before Thursday's games. Let's start by taking a closer look at what Eagles guard Christophe Varidel decided to wear to the event.

Yup. Those are white sunglasses with the letters FGCU on them. He's clearly proud of them too, as you can tell from the confident hair swipe and head turn.

Now here he is doing the Chicken Dance. Because that's what the Eagles do.

Head coach Andy Enfield is into it. And why shouldn't he be? He's the first coach to ever bring a 15 seed to the Sweet 16.

And of course, a pep rally wouldn't be complete without some enthusiastic fans. You have to love the two guys to the left that decided to paint themselves blue.
