Last night's game, like most years, got me thinking about the state of our MBB program. Can we ever get the talent a Kansas or Kentucky has? Can we regularly be a threat in the NCAA tourney?
Despite the river of shit our program has gone through, I still think we came out clean and should be a truly dominate program. "This is Michigan fergodsakes" should also apply to MBB. But perhaps my expectations of the steady state MBB are a bit too high. They are as follows:
1. Win the B10 once every 4 years
2. Make the NCAA tourney every year with no first round losses
3. Make a Final 4 once every 4-6 years (I know this is a stretch)
4. Make the NC game once every 10
Keep in mind that I don't think we have hit our "steady state" yet. I think this occurs in about 2 years when all facility upgrades are completed, our new-found commitment to MBB has been fully implemented, and are regularly getting the recruits we should.
