Re: Preseason NCAA Basketball Poll is released
Uconn doesnt have the history but they have more titles than Kansas. Hard the argue they haven't been in the very top of the discussion of "program of the 2000's", which to me is more important than UCLA winning a zillion titles with one guy and then one more 20 years later with a hot team. Recruits don't care about UCLA's history cause none of them think of UCLA as a power, so I'm coming from the angle that UCONN's last 15 years has set them up nicely to continue being successful in the future whereas UCLA is mired in mediocrity. We gave indiana blue blood status for winning 5 titles 30+ years ago so the more and more I think about if the more silly it seems to argue against Uconn being a top 5 program right now. Sustained success and history is great but when you compare things like championships Uconn matches up favorably to 99% of d-1 programs now.
