Getting It Done

It had only happened four times before this year.  The last time is happened was in 1995-96.  The team to do it is not one that most would have expected to do it.

The Florida State Seminoles beat both North Carolina and Duke in basketball twice this season.  They beat UNC here (by 33), Duke at their place, and both of them during the ACC Tournament in Atlanta.  The knocked off the Blue Devils to advance to the title game, and then held on to beat the Tar Heels to win their first ACC basketball title.

I am not going to proclaim to be the biggest basketball fan in the world, but what I know is that this group of Seminoles has done something special.  And while I am not a huge basketball fan, I am a huge fan of the Noles, and I am excited for their success.

Will this carry over to the NCAA Tournament?  I have no idea.  But it sure would be nice to see the Noles do well.

*Side note:  Last season, the Noles had every one of their varsity sports eligible to compete in postseason play.  That is pretty darn impressive, and hopefully they can get that done again this year.

    They actually had every sport qualify for the post season for two years in a row: 2009-2012 and 2010-2011. Only school in NCAA history to do it once, much less twice. This year’s already a bust though, women’s hoops nose dived.

      I think that says a lot about the athletic department as a whole. Clearly the right people are in the right places and recruiting talented athletes.
