Depending on the program, doing just one of these is a feat in itself. Marshall winning an NCAA tourney game is major step in the right direction and Kentucky or Duke winning a bowl game is basically unheard of.
This sabermetric is cool in the way that your school winning a Cheerleading and Rifle title in the same year is cool. No one cares, but it’s worth mentioning. Also, the fact that only 12 teams did this brings a trump card to any rivalry argument.

If you would have asked me 5 years ago who would be on this list, I would have said Florida, Ohio State and Louisville. Three schools who are usually consistent at both sports. I definitely would not have said Alabama or Clemson, because they seem a little focused on football every year, and I also would have left out Duke and Kentucky because their football teams have been nonexistent some years. I could not be happier for Marshall though. Major step for their program.
