This makes sense, except no one but Gonzaga is really successful doing it. San Diego State's never been past the Sweet 16 and that was a long time ago. Wichita had about a 2 year window of great teams and then crashed. Same with Butler.
I really think had Brad Stevens committed to staying at Butler they would have still being a consistent Sweet 16 Team or better and similar to the Gonzaga of the East. Their back-to-back Championship appearances were pretty cool. Almost won at the buzzer vs. Duke. But, Few elected to stay and loves coaching college. There may never be another Gonzaga for many years.
