Consider some of the things Florida Gulf Coast does not have like all the other Sweet 16 basketball programs.
1.) A shoe deal with Nike or Adidas. Florida Gulf Coast buys its own equipment and gear because it has no sponsors.
2.) A fully staffed coaching and administrative staff. USC does not lack when it comes to hiring people for sports.
3.) Florida Gulf Coast’s Alico Arena seats 4,500. The Galen Center seats 10,258.
Looks like even USC should be able to close this deal.
