I think not. We've had some elite teams, but they are too far apart to be considered an elite program. Prior to the championship team, we had a spell of 5 years, I think, where we had good seeding, but were bumped out of the tournament in the first weekend. Following the championship runs, we had 3 years of NIT, NIT, first round NCAA loss. An elite program does not 4 years to rebuild. I think we then went to 3 straight Elite 8s and a Final 4, but followed up with a losing season. Two more NITs then an Elite 8. Anyone else see a pattern here? We have good runs followed by average to poor spells. Would a true elite program have such dry spells? That said, I believe we have the 2nd best program in the SEC, but then again, we are a football conference. We can hold our own with other conferences, but we still lack elite programs. The point of all this is that maybe we, myself included, are expecting too much of CMW. He's delivering just what we have proven we are capable of for the last 20 years, that being a good/solid hoops program, but not great.
