Pretty kewl. Of course our 72 Fins are represented as are Wooden's UCLA Bruins and Orel Hershiser's consecutive scoreless innings. Some I didn't realize such as the 1950's Oklahoma's prodigious football win streak, or Unitas's 47 game TD streak. From the retrospect of time, some of even the more well-known streaks seem all the more impressive and impossible to ever replicate.

Makes for a good read.

My Mom bought me a book about that. It was actually a pretty good read. It told the story of the various football stars at Oklahoma during that time from their recruiting through to their senior years and who came in to replace them. It struck me as odd and funny that they actually had team A and team B and they could go in interchangeably and not miss a beat.

How bout the 60 something game winning streak the U had in the orange bowl. Forgot how many exactly but I remember nobody wanted to play us down here

I think that one's untouchable, as is DiMaggio's hit streak.
