644. Gonzaga: Nine consecutive NCAA tournament bids (and counting)

The Zags should make it 10 straight this year. No, this number may not impress the Dukies or the Heels, but for a mid-major it's an amazing feat. And the Zags don't have the luxury of playing in the Big Ten. Just in case you want to know, here's the recap:

2007: No. 10 seed, lost to No. 7 seed Indiana in first round
2006: No. 3 seed, lost to No. 2 seed UCLA in Sweet 16
2005: No. 3 seed, lost to No. 6 seed Texas Tech in second round
2004: No. 2 seed, lost to No. 10 seed Nevada in second round
2003: No. 9 seed, lost to No. 1 seed Arizona in second round
2002: No. 6 seed, lost to No. 11 seed Wyoming in first round
2001: No. 12 seed, lost to No. 1 seed Michigan State in Sweet 16
2000: No. 10 seed, lost to No. 6 seed Purdue in Sweet 16
1999: No. 10 seed, lost to No. 1 seed UConn in Elite Eight

Too bad the bad 2007 start didn't continue so that streak could be broken. Playing in the Weak 10 does help them get bowl games.
