8 straight NCAA appearances is pretty strong, especially since they finished 3rd in the nation one year and 5th in the nation another year. I understand the golfers at UNC-Chapel Hill got caught letting their tudors turn in their scorecards.

It's not impressive for a school thats huge compared to the majority of schools in the a-10 conference to be successful. It's like comparing apples to oranges.
