If there's a difference between these two programs, it's very slight and perhaps only a little bit in favor of KU. The only thing that's clear is that they are both in a league of their own in college basketball.
That's why Wicked's comment about KU being clearly better, was so odd to me. I wondered what he was reading or watching that would lead him to that conclusion.
Remember too that 10 years is a bit arbitrary. Duke was vastly superior the 5 years prior. So going back the last 15 years, it's not even a question. And if we do that, we pull in more UNC success, and more UK success at the end of Pitino/beginning of Tubby. Also, Florida and Mich State also have cases to make as equals.
