Way to may a stance lol. (Kidding)Nova and Wisconsin are typically NCAA teams....Wisconsin is 20 out of last 21 years, Nova since their dip a decade ago, has been locked in since the break up of the Big East losing ND, Cuse, Pitt, BC, Louisville etc
Illinois since hiring Underwood and Antigua, will be recruiting sharks
Seton Hall and Cuse are wild cards but winning programs (over. 500) 9 out of 10 years and should be at the bubble or right in, most seasons.
The question is whether RU can hover at a 20-11, 19- 12, 18-13 range most years.
It sounds silly but the CBB season really has figured out things unlike CFB, which has been ruined by the playoff.....CFB used to be the best, when you had 50 bowl games and 25 programs went into their offseason with a win that good feeling.
CBB has 68 programs that feel a sense of accomplishment and another 24 to 32 in the NIT, are close enough by a couple of games or couple of basketball games from feeling like they can make the dance.
You made a couple of good points to start, but then you conclude by being insulting. Whatever you define as “old” you’ll be there sooner than you think. Oh, and many of these old fogeys have been pretty damn loyal fans and donors over the years.Less specific.
Want to not be bottom in the Big Ten for 3pt shooting.
Same as football: want to not be bottom of the Big Ten in yards per game.
Modern sports are here - sorry old people.

Illinois is my 2nd favorite team.
I did too and still do BUT (and that’s a BIG but for a reason) I do not want to be the Wisky fanbase. 👎I have always cited Wisconsin as an athletics program that we would want to emulate even before we got the B1G invite.
Feeling is mutual from us! Have developed a fondness for RU. Your NYC is our Chicago, your Philly is our St. Louis and your pro-sports-loving-state problems are ours, as well!
Hoping RU can have a great BTT until it would affect us and stay in the Tourney.
