however, what we did was win the conference 11 times in a row, and be in the NCAA tournament 13 times in a row. and it's something that, whether you want to admit it or not, every other team and every fan of every other team in the WCC wishes has/had been them instead.
at any rate, you have to go through where we are NOW to get to where you were back then. i'm not so arrogant as to think that we are the pinnacle of WCC hoops historically (definitely belongs to your 50s dons) or even mid-major hoops today, but the fact is that every WCC teams rise to greatness goes through gonzaga. you won't be considered great again until after you're considered better than us.
and the honest to god truth is that your schedule is a punt on your high aspirations. so rather than calling other people on other message boards names for pointing that out, how about you hold your otherwise very impressive coach and new AD's feet to the fire and let them know that you think your team is better than that?
