If not this year, when?  When will Gonzaga break through?

I mean... 3 1 seeds in 4 years,  2 final games appearances. 

Based on recent history,  plenty of opportunities

They never will. 

Odds are against it.  But way less against it than for about 315 other teams

Let me know when Hawai'i makes the NCAA tournament again

Let me know when the Rebs are relevant again. Hasn’t Hawaii made it more recently? I think...2016 is more recent than 2013.

March Madness never fails to deliver. So glad it was played this year. I feel bad for teams like SDSU last year that never got their chance. The peaks and valleys are crazy. Tiny Abilene Christian taking down Texas. Oral Roberts winning two, UCLA a play in winning five straight, teams exuberant one night and crying the next.

It’s right up there with the top sporting events of the year. I’ll be damn happy to be able to start going to games again next year

I think Gonzaga will eventually break through, but they need to change their team composition a little bit.  They aren’t the most athletic team, and Baylor was not a good matchup for them.  They have them a lot of trouble.

Who will break through first? You with a steady girlfriend that’s not an escort or Gonzaga basketball winning a title?

Gonzaga shouldn't be down on themselves.  All year, those were the two best teams, unquestionably.  Gonzaga has learned how difficult it is to win the tourney, twice in the final game, or even final four.  Most blue bloods have that in spades.  What they are accomplishing, because they ain't done, is something most ball clubs can only dream of.

 

While I have pure disdain for Baylor University, none of  the men on that title team, and I don't believe any of the basketball staff, have anything to do with the things that should nuke the university as a whole.  My hat goes off to that squad, they earned it, no questions about it.

dropping that LATE edit with the Fixer dude? Lame! Cringe! Blue pilled and you know it.

UNLV's records stand the test of time?

ONLY TEAM TO SCORE OVER 100 POINTS IN A NATIONAL TITLE GAME.....UNLV? CHECK!

LARGEST MARGIN OF VICTORY IN A NATIONAL TITLE GAME (30 POINTS)....UNLV? CHECK!

I actually feel kinda bad for you. The only thing you can actually point to that’s factual are stats from 30 years ago.  With the exception of a few Lon Kruger seasons, you guys have nothing. Zero. No football. Nothing.  Just hot air about future final 4 teams that don’t exist.

Hell, Utah fans rarely bring up our 1997 championship game. There’s so much more recent success to talk about in a lot of sports. 
 

I really hope your athletic department gets their act together soon because it’s getting pretty hard to blow the dust off the early 90’s stats. Anytime they show those highlights, it looks like the old grainy black and white stuff.

You’re about to get a full lesson in basketball on potential, the early 1990’s, top 5 recruiting classes and Vegas is the best coaching job in the west. 
 

If only it can all come together, the rest of CBB will be in absolute awe.

dude thank you. But you can never understand. The 97/1998 Utah team was a RUNNER-UP.  Every school in this conference, and Utah...looked up at UNLV as true champion in 1990. Your school will never achieve such glory. So you have my deepest sympathy, non-champion school.

So tell me, where has that success 30 years ago landed you? 
 

We certainly know where Utah landed.
