Both UCLA and KU have 1 title in the last 30 years.

What makes one so faded, and one a true blue blood?

Hell, Louisville has 3 with one being as recent as 7 tourneys ago.

KU is a contender to win the title every year and has made the elite 8 half of the years Self has been their coach. UCLA/Louisville.....not so much.

I'd put Gonzaga and KU in the same category. Always contenders going into the tourney, elite eights here and there, but never get titles (between the two of them there have been 160 tourneys and they've won 1.66% of them).

I guess I value tourney titles for blue blood status.

If you're going to be in an elite club, especially in a sport with no parity, at all, you gotta have ships. Butler has recent back to back elite 8s, that can't be a blue blood metric.

Locked In:
UCLA: 11 titles
Kentucky: 8 titles
North Carolina: 6 titles
Duke: 5 titles
UCONN: 5 titles

Kind of forgotten, but close?:
Indiana: 5 titles, 0 in the last 25 years.
Kansas: 4 titles, 2 in the last 35 years.
Villanova: 3 titles, 2 recently.

Point of personal privilege, but Kansas has 3 in the last 35 years.

Pretty crazy that UCONN has won as many nattys as Duke and Indiana now.

Vilanova's 2018 team sticks out in my mind as one of the greatest ever. So many weapons on that team. How far back do you have to go to find another team on that level?

KU also has a participation title for the 2020 season that they claim since they totally would have won if not for COVID.

Indiana hasn't even been to an Elite Eight since 2002 under Mike Davis. And that was their only Elite Eight since 1993. At least UCLA has been to a few final fours over the last few years

Another knock on ucla is they’ve won only one title outside of their 12 year stretch of domination from 1964-75.

Do NOT read the Phog Hoops Board (unless for trolling purposes only). It will make you more stupider.

In the 32 years I've been alive, UCONN/Duke/UNC/Kentucky have won 53% of the National Championships.

On twitter, some Phoggies were wanting to be very clear that UCLA's titles are too old and UConn's are too new.  You can have fewer titles, as long as they're spread out appropriately.
