No, we will need more than 1 in BB. There is known and then there is blue blood. Connecticut has 4 titles. Cincinnati has 2, Florida has 2. Some school in the same state as Duke has 2. I wouldn’t consider them blue bloods. In BB, it takes titles and sustained excellence (final fours, elite eights.) We’re definitely headed in the right direction.
In football, a series of NY6 bowls,3 or 4 in a row, 5 out of 7 gets us on the map. But to be a blue blood, we’ll need 10-15 years with an appearance in NY6 bowls. Think Miami, they were a blue blood for a while, but not anymore.
I agree with elite… But blue blood, which I do hate as an expression, is a different thing… Blue blood is like royalty… Literally, that’s where the expression comes from. And you gotta wear the crown to be royalty.
