I see we're using the word "elite" loosely here.

Yeah, not fair to have the label of being lambs in the tournament.

 

Since 2000:

2000-01: National Champs

01-02: Sweet 16

02-03: Sweet 16

03-04: F4

04-05: Sweet 16

05-06: Sweet 16

06-07: Rd of 64

07-08: Rd of 32

08-09: Sweet 16

09-10: National Champs

10-11: Sweet 16

11-12: Rd of 64

12-13: Elite 8

 

Can't really ask for much more than that. Couple of years where the tournament ended early based on expectations, but that's the tournament. Also have the '09-'10 National Title, and that team (even with 35 wins) was more 'very good' than 'great'. Things balance out, but pretty much any program would kill for that level of consistent success.

Yes any team would kill for that, when you reach those heights however, anything less than a Sweet 16 appearance is a failure and you usually aren't satisfied with less than a Final Four.

Should be a great night. Kentucky/Michigan State shouldn't disappoint either. Good chance we're watching 2 or 3 of this year's final 4 teams in those two games, IMO.

Just noted by Shulman for the Champions Classic that there are 68 scouts at the United Center. Wonder if that's the record?
