From an ESPN article discussing Gonzaga moving to a Power 5 in BB:
"Throughout its run as a men's college basketball standout over the past 20 years, Gonzaga has been slighted by Power 5 coaches who have openly questioned whether the program could duplicate that success in a major conference. Beginning with the 1999-2000 season, coach Mark Few has failed to win the West Coast Conference regular-season title -- or at least a share of it -- only twice (2000, '12), but the program has not won a national championship."
Yup, as I have said here on these boards, they play in a weak league where they can easily run the table, and don't have enough competition each year to consistently keep a high level game going even with a few non-con games against better opponents. Hurts them every time in the playoffs, and I would counter that maybe if they go to a Power 5, it might raise their game to getting that C. But Power 5 coaches consider that Gonzaga thing dubious as noted in the article and shows they would not be as good as advertized in a Power 5. Who am I to question the best coaches so I will go with their opinion.
