Some more thoughts on the Blue Bloods during our basketball downtime.

I recently did some internet surfing on the question of who are the best NCAA basketball schools. I randomly found 10 different means of measuring this. They all are different from the means of measurement previously done on this post. The first 10 sites found were used. Most of them are opinions with some using a bit of criteria for measurement and others simply a matter of opinion. First I list the sites and then give the results of each site. Only the top five schools are listed but I ranked the top 10 and am giving 10 points for a 1, 9 points for a 2, etc. A _ indicates not ranked in the top 10. The year the site was posted is also given. Nine points separate the top four. UCLA follows # 4 by 20 points.

Site . . . .1 . 2 . 3 . 4 . 5 . 6 . 7 . 8 . 9 . 10 .Total . Rank
UK . . . . _ . 1 . 1 . 1 . 1 . 1 . 4 . 1 . 4 . . 1 . . 84 . . . .1
Duke. . . 3 . 2 . 2 . 4 . 4 . 3 . 1 . 2 . 1 . . 5 . . 83 . . . .2
KU . . . . 1 . 3 . 3 . 5 . 5 . 5 . 2 . 3 . 4 . . 2 . . 77 . . . .3
UNC . . . 4 . 3 . 3 . 3 . 3 . 2 . 3 . 5 . 1 . . 1 . . 75 . . . .4
UCLA . . _ . _ . 5 . 2 . 2 . 4 . _ . 3 . 3 . . 3 . . 55. . . . 5

UK being # 1 doesn’t surprise me. There seems to be much weight given UCLA for their great decade plus. It was great, but what about all the time before and after? Notice, they weren’t even ranked in three of the categories. The following comment was made where they were # 2 in the 10 Greatest Programs of All Time: “UCLA is 2nd all-time in NCAA Tournament appearances, an especially impressive feat considering that they have played in 200 - 300 fewer games than Kentucy, North Caroline, Duke and Kansas.” That statement makes no sense at all as the Tournament didn’t start until 1939, meaning that all the schools have played a similar number of games since that time. UCLA’s appearances are impressive but they haven’t played 200 - 300 games less than the other schools since 1939! Such thinking indicates an undue predigest. The main value of this chart is the number of opinions it is based on. That tends to even out some of the predigest. Based on this, it is clear who the top four Blue Bloods are. Nine points separate the top four. UCLA follows #4 by 20 points!

The temperature level of interest varies throughout the year. It is always fairly high, but changes in accordance with what’s happening – Season almost to start, early games, signing period, winding up non-conf., starting conf., mid-conf., winding up conf. and conf. tourney, NCAA tourney, who’s staying and going, verbal commitments, some down time, Late Night, repeat the cycle . . . Our interest in Jayhawk basketball never stops. This is not meant to be exact and may vary some from year to year, but it gives you the idea of KU basketball fan interest . . . It would be great if KU football interest could someday have a similar scale. I believe that it has recently gone up several degrees, but time will tell if it continues up or really cools off again.

No...I have known KU is one of the true 4 bluebloods for a long time. Why do you have to go on about trying to prove it over and over is beyond me....but I guess you got to do something in the western Kansas hinderlands....better than slitting your wrists I guess...

Glad that you are one of many on this board that belives KU is a blue blood, one of the four true historical blue bloods. Sad to say there has been some on this board who don't think so. Such non believers will probably never be convinced. That's their problem. I simply enjoy posting stats and will continue to do so whenever I feel like it. There are some who even enjoy my stat posts. You don't like them, don't read them. It really doesn't make me difference. Really looking forward to the upcoming season.
