Possibly with the change of rules.
Less reliance on one and dones.
If you look at the last two teams to win back to back.
You see one thing in common. Players returning.
It is an oddity to see that many players returning.
But N Carolina came close only a few years ago.
It has happened multiple times every decade (except the 70s when UCLA won 5) since the tournament has existed, btw.
Okie St (45-46), UK (48-49)
UK (51-58), San Fran (55-56)
Cincy (61-62), UCLA (64,65,67,68,69)
Louisville (80-86), Indiana (81-87)
Duke (91-92), UK (96-98)
Florida (06-07), UNC (05-09)
UConn (11-14), Duke (10-15), Nova (16-18)
He is talking about back to back I believe. Not winning 2 NC in 1 decade
Has only happened twice since 1974
Well in that case, no.
Yes. MSU with Bates x2 cuz no OAD
That’s a pretty insane stat
COVID well on it's way to back to back titles this decade.
Repeating has always been difficult. Lately, it's been darn near impossible, as winning a championship is usually followed by a mass exodus of players. Also, factor in that a lot of kids don't even care about being a 1st Round pick anymore. For some, a second round pick is enough - or playing overseas is enough. Roster turnover is brutal for top 25 teams. You're essentially re-building every year. Winning 12 straight games with a large roster turnover is a very tall task.
I think it's unlikely we'll see a repeat champion this decade. I am curious, however, to see how players profiting off of their image and likeness could impact the continuity of rosters. Some kids really do enjoy the college experience; it would be a lot easier to come back to school if you knew you would be compensated reasonably well.
I know what u mean; but u just gotta win 6 straight games.....in back to back years.
12 straight tourney games tho
And yea since the days of players coming back who aren’t first round locks is long gone, I don’t see it happening either. Unless the G league thing takes over and OaD ends and the college athletes actually want to be in college, then I could see a special class somewhere getting it done.
If we’re talking back to back, then no.
If we’re talking about one school winning more than one championship, then yes.
