5 at worst, 4 at best.

Like wisblue and others, real curious to see the bracket reveal next week.

In this context I’m talking about a team that has been in the top 10-20 for much of the last 10 years and makes the NCAA tournament virtually every year.
Makes sense. Your point was correct.

My Blue Bloods : UNC, Duke, Kentucky, Kansas, Indiana, UCONN and I guess UCLA. Villanova could replace UCLA or IU.

That's fair. They would have a better argument than UCLA, correct?

UCONN has replaced IU as a blue blood.  Both schools have five natys, but UCONN has won their five since IU’s last one.  UCLA has one since IU’s last one as well.

The bigger question - can MU hold on to the soon to be top five ranking?  This could be an 0 - 2 week.  We’ll see what these Eagles are made of over the next seven days.  It’s quite possibly their biggest test of the season so far.  Let’s pass it!

Could also be a 2-0 week. Or a 1-1 week.

I guess that covers it, as sources say there are no ties.

No idea how this week will go, but I wouldn’t. MU can win both of these games.

This completely. I fully believe this team can beat anyone anywhere in the country. When we're on, we can compete with anyone else at this level. This team can certainly beat Butler and deliver a reminder to UConn that we are still the champs of this league.

Yeah, 1-1 is pretty COLE. Of course we can't overlook Butler, but it is absolutely a game we should win. @UCONN will be our most difficult game of the year -  including any we might face in the NCAAT - but it is certainly a game we can win. 2-0 a big task this week, but if we do it, PU-OSU on Sunday takes on some major significance.

Indiana hasn't been Blue for decades.

Nova is finding out Jay Wright is hard to replace.

MSU has been above Indiana in the pecking order for quite awhile.

True. I find myself looking beyond the Butler game. I know, I know. Bad idea.

I have no doubt Shaka and the team will not make that mistake. The UCONN game will be the most crucial test since early season.

Wild horses couldn't drag me into either political party, but for very different reasons.

24 years since a natty.  Sure, they've been good, but they're not blue either.

And when Izzo leaves... I have doubts about their longevity as well.

IMO, the only true destination jobs in MCBB are:  Duke, UNC, Kansas, Kentucky, UCLA.  That's the list.

As all bar stool discussions go, there is no absolute right answer. I respect that list. I'll just say that if UCONN isn't a blue blood, then that means the club is closed to any new members.

For me, MSU doesn't even register as even a candidate for blue blood.

It seems like there is no reason not to vote to create a top-5 matchup next sat.....

You’re adopting a much different definition, and that’s fine.

But MSU has been in 6 Final Fours since that championship and has been in the tournament almost every year.

UCLA has gone longer without a title and has been less successful than MSU over the last 25 years.
