my honest thoughts-- we are clearly not the best mid major right now or historically.
you guys deserve respect for your national championships, they are something we have never accomplished.
butler deserves credit for their tourney performances this year and last year. this clearly is a level of tourney success that us zag fans yearn for.
however, whether you like it or not, gonzaga is in the middle of a historic run as well.
it's pointless to argue between the three imo, as they all accomplished something different in different circumstances. i would neither elevate the zag's accomplishments above, nor dismiss them in the face of these others that you listed.
but 13+ years in the NCAA? 2nd most consecutive conference championships of all time? random my ass.
