Advancing to 4 consective sweet 16 is very impressive going to 4 consecutive bowl games many many teams have achieved that accomplishment.

I meant winning 4 bowl games in a row....my screw up.

Without looking it up quite a few teams have won 4 straight including our beloved Nebraska team.

Not really as easy of a task these days and in this day and age to win 4 straight bowl games. Go back from this year and name the programs in addition to MSU's current streak that have won 4 straight bowl games? If you go back 4 years from now FSU, was the only other team in the top 25 that has been in and won 4 straight bowl games but they lost to Oregon so they are out. Not Bama, Not Auburn, Not tOSU (remember they were on probation 2 years ago and then lost to Clemson in a bowl game a few years ago.

Being in 4 straight bowl games is not a huge deal, winning 4 straight bowl games (now a days) is a pretty elite feet. NO team in in that final top 25 from this last year had done it besides MSU had won 4 straight bowl games in the last 4 years. Maybe a team or two in addition may have done it, but at a P5 school? Maybe. Not as easy as you are making it out to be.

Sure Neb did it, but for all of Nebraskas storied history we have only been on two 4 game win bowl streaks in our entire history. One was TO's 90's run which was exactly 4 straight and the other was way back from 69-74.

On the b-ball side, it really comes down to coaching. Look at the teams that routinely make it deep in the tournament. The blue-blood coaches seem to find a way every year.

To be clear This refers to the FB program winning 4 in a row and the BB program going to the sweet 16 4 years in a row. BOTH accomplishments happening in the same 4 yr time span.

You made that clear the first time by " the first school to ever do both".

I'm more impressed with the 4 years making sweet sixteen than the other that's all.

3 out of those 4 bowl games were Jan 1 games against #20 Georgia, #10 Stamford and #8 Baylor. Pretty impressive wins.
