The Duke example is pretty clear. Coach K is ELITE (as evidenced by 2 titles in 6 years) and Duke is an ELITE program. Even an elite coach at an elite program missed the Elite 8 in 8 of 10 seasons before this one, then how is it fair to expect Final 4s or even Elite 8s every season from Beilein?
And now you are slowly starting to agree with me. When I said that "what programs can realistically expect to make the Final 4 in consecutive seasons", you should have answered "few to none" because it is a pretty unrealistic expectation. Instead, you gave me this list of teams "Wisconsin, Kentucky, Michigan, Louisville, MSU, Duke, Arizona". Silly, IMO.
