A good measuring stick of any senior college sports program is the postseason.
Being one of the last few standing after a long season shows promise and shows success for sports teams. 
For Mississippi State athletic director Scott Stricklin, that's one thing he points to when he begins to talk about the success of his 16 programs over the last school year.
"We continue to have a majority of our teams in postseason play," Stricklin said. "We want all 16 (teams) to get in, but we continue to get in. Some of them have made some runs, baseball last year, women's golf the last two years, especially this year finishing sixth. You just have to put yourself into position where you can compete for championships. From that standpoint, I feel really good."
MSU saw 11 of its 16 varsity teams make postseason appearances this past season.
