Georgetown does not have the resume of those schools, the $$$$, the following, etc. In fact Georgetown is behind other schools knocking on the door (ie. Louisville, Connecticut, Arizona). What's more, Georgetown hasn't been Georgetown since Big John left and are falling even further down the hierarchy.

I don't get this Arizona love and putting them up near the top echelon. They have won one championship. They are a constant underachiever, just look at this year. Xavier with their best player out for the season beat them in the NCAA's. They get big time recruits every year and get lofty rankings every pre-season and constantly underachieve. Arizona never had the level of dominance that Georgetown had at one point. At least the Hoyas were very close to 3 titles in 3 years.

If Georgetown wins 3 titles in 3 years instead of losing those games, they'd have to be considered one.

Arizona made a lot of ground up on the Hoyas last 10 years though.....
Arizona with 3 elite 8's and 3 other sweet 16's in those 10 years. Only 2 tourney misses in the 10 years.

Arizona now with 9 more tourney wins and 4 more appearances. With a lot of that gap in the last 10 years.

30 NCAA appearances
11 Sweet Sixteens
9 Elite Eights
5 Final Fours
1 National Championship (3x runner-up)

Allen Iverson
Patrick Ewing
Alonzo Mourning
Dikembe Mutombo
Roy Hibbert
etc. etc.

Elite private institution in the nation's capital.

Secondary question, what keeps them from being permanently elite in basketball?

I'd have to vote no on that.

They're in the same boat as Indiana for example, past glory put them into the category, but the shine of definitely off.

Seems the only TRUE blue bloods left are Duke, UNC, Kansas, and Kentucky.

Arizona has been an underachiver. They're not even close. They're like Texas A&M football, you can count on them to be good and nationally relevant but that's about it.

No. Blue bloods are able to sustain/recreate success through multiple coaching staffs.

So Ewing (and subsequently his replacements) will need to be extremely successful IMHO for Georgetown to be a blue blood

True, they do have multiple titles, but it's been 30 years since then won their last one.

I think you could argue that Louisville or even Michigan State have passed them on the list.

Since 1990 the B1G has only won one title. Yeeesh!
