    Default You Know Your Program has Arrived When:_________________________

    Fill in the blank:

    My choice is that I feel this team can and should beat UW, UNC, Tennessee or anybody. Doesnít mean they will, but just have that quiet confidence they will find a way to win. Gone are the days where I just hope they will win a tough game against a top program.


    Letís hear yours!

    You're not shocked to see them ranked number one.

    Love it...

    I would add - when Gonzaga is mentioned every time Duke is talked about (as in "Duke's only loss is to Gonzaga")

    When you are already 1-0 against each of the ACC, PAC-12 AND SEC and it will be considered an upset if you're not 2-0 against each of these conferences after December 15th.

    When the Zags are #1, and you read the comment sections below the various power rankings, and none (or very few) of the complaints are about the GU.

    When beating Duke and UNC in the same season seems very realistic and almost expected.

    I really like this one. We no longer need emissaries from this board to post on opponents' forums to dis-spell myths, the opponent board members do it for us.

    When you are the "game of year" for anyone you play, not named Duke, Kansas, UNC, or Kentucky.

    When your team has gone to more consecutive tournaments in a row than John Wooden took UCLA to, cumulatively, in his entire career.

    This means we arrived 3 seasons ago FYI.

    As an aside, and not to thread-jack, but what is the record for most consecutive NCAA tournament appearances in a row by a coach? Does anyone have this? I am aware of the longer streaks of teams (Kansas, Duke, Arizona), but both Kansas and Arizona were coached by different coaches during their runs. Is the 1996-present streak by coach K the longest in the history of the tournament? If so I like Few's chances of one day catching him given their age difference).

    When one of the talking heads in the studio pregame comments: “This isn’t just a huge opportunity for Creighton. If they beat Gonzaga it legitimizes the whole Big East conference.”

    When your fan forum board, instead of being happy about their team's status in life, starts to seriously worry about their defense, because "if that's not shored up, we might not win a national title."
