You are correct concerning the four Blue Bloods. That lines up with my research. You may or may not be correct concerning KU being # four. There's a lot of factors concerning that and you have only given your opinion, no facts except the number of national titles. I've only shared stats on the teams. They don't conclusively rank the teams. Another consideration hasn't been discussed and that's the intangible influence each of the schools have made on basketball. I know KU's has been quite considerable, such as who its coaches have been, development of the NCAA, the Tournament and basketball becoming a part of the Olympics. There's other considerations that I won't go into.

Or less..come get some...You live in KC???...Lol
I just like giving the old man a hard time. I know he has nothing better to do out in the western Kansas hinderlands. If posting 40000 word posts about KU's greatness in hoops so be it...but they are 4th among the Bluebloods...FACT...

Another stab at the Blue Bloods. This one goes with the top 20. I think 20 is way over the top, but go to this site and see what they have to say.

https://fansided.com/2019/05/15/college-...tm_medium=email

Here's their list starting at 20 and going to 1:
20. Gonzaga
19. N. C. St.
18. Wisconsin
17. Maryland
16. Michigan
15. Florida
14. Ohio St.
13. Georgetown
12. Villanova
11. Arizona
10. UConn
. 9. Louisville
. 8. Syracuse
. 7. Michigan St.
. 6. Indiana
. 5. KU
. 4. Duke
. 3. UNC
. 2. UCLA
. 1. UK

This list is not only longer than the one first shared on this thread, but quite different.

The first site says that, “UK, KU, UNC & Duke are obvious Blue Bloods.” The second site says that, “Duke and KU certainly qualify.” I assume that he would also include UK and UNC due to the rest of his article.

The first site includes UCLA, UConn, Michigan St. And Nova in his 2nd tier of four. He considers these as schools that probably should be Blue Bloods, but lack just a bit compared to the first four. Indiana, Temple and Gonzaga are in his 3rd tier, just three. These are possible contenders for being Blue Bloods, but lack a bit more than the other eight.

The second site places UCLA in the top four (#2), UConn in the 3rd four (#10), Michigan St. In the 2nd four (#7), Nova in the3rd four (#12), Indiana in the 2nd four (#6), Gonzaga in the 5th four and Temple isn’t listed. Each team is given a ranking from 1 - 20. This is probably an impossible task seeing how just these two sites differ so much on their selections.

Not only are the lists much different in how many, but where some of the various schools are placed. This only shows that there’s considerable difference on what different people think about who the Blue Bloods are and how many there are. It seems that most people consider UK, KU, UNC and Duke as Blue Bloods. That’s a good place to start and stop.

I just happened to come across an old post from three years ago. Daniel D. Zillmer had written an article ranking the 75 Greatest College Basketball Programs.using the following criteria:

NCAA Championship-- 10 points
Championship Game Runner up-- 6 points
Pre-NCAA Tournament Appearance-- 2 points
Final Four-- 5 points
Elite Eight-- 4 points
Sweet Sixteen-- 3 points
NCAA Tournament Appearance-- 2 points
Conference Championship-- 8 points

It has some bearing on the Basketball Blue Bloods and their rankings. He primarily uses the NCAA Tournament for his criteria, leaving out all time season records. I've updated it adding in the past 3 years points:

The top five schools:
UK with 932 points + 31 points = 963
KU with 858 points + 41 points = 899
UCLA with 782 points + 7 points = 789
UNC with 742 points + 31 points = 773
Duke with 560 points + 23 points = 583

So much for KU not being a Blue Blood or at the bottom of the Blue Bloods, especially when considering the NCAA Tournament..
