Honorable mention Cincinnati, UNLV, VCU, Louisville, Georgetown, probably more.
Show me the tiers where you're above 3rd.
You arbitrarily picked 23 years as a marker, though 23 years ago we did make a Final Four (1989), which would make 2 Final Fours. Why not just arbitrarily pick 28 years and then we'll have made 3 Final Fours?
The way you structure your argument is based on arbitrary years that work for it. Nice confirmation bias in action there.
We aren't as great as some Illinois fans think we are, but certainly people like you out to set to make it seem like we're nothing at all is just retarded.
