Did you happen to catch Georgetown's latest quick exit from the NCAA Tournament last night? The team that dispatched the Hoyas was little known Florida Gulf Coast University - which up until several weeks ago when they beat Florida in baseball, I was sure was a junior college.

We now know that they very much are a Division 1 school, as they instantly became the cinderella story of the tournament, becoming the latest of the 15 seeds to beat a 2 seed.

Know something else about the FGCU Eagles? They will be coming to visit the Hump next winter, it turns out.

Last night after the stunning upset, MSU coach Rick Ray dropped State fans a little scheduling nugget on Twitter, letting fans know that the Eagles would be visiting for a home game on December 19th.

Of the five starters from last night's big win for FGCU, four will be returning in 2013-14, so State could have quite a game on its hands.

Looking forward to it.

Also, the Eagles bring a pretty strong locker-room dance repertoire:
