It's been pretty awesome being a fan of the Clemson Tigers over the past year or so.

How awesome?

Well, Clemson is the only school in the country that, over the last year, has made deep runs in the three major sports - football, baseball and men's basketball.

ESPN's Chris Low pointed this out:

"Terrific run for Clemson in the three major sports. Tigers are headed to the Sweet 16 in men's hoops after playing in the College Football Playoff earlier this year and making the NCAA baseball tournament last spring. Nobody else can claim that hat trick," he tweeted today.

That's pretty fantastic.

Clemson, the No. 4 seed in the Midwest Region, advanced to the Sweet 16 on Sunday. The Tigers absolutely dominated No. 5 seed Auburn in the second round game.

CU is set to take on No. 1 seed Kansas in the Sweet 16 on Friday night. The game will tip off at 7:07 p.m. E.T.

It will be televised on CBS.
