Ask a college head coach about the NBA's current eligibility rules, commonly referred to as the "one-and-done" era, and you're likely to hear a long list of complaints.
The coaches will tell you that one-and-done players make it difficult to maintain a program's consistency. There's little or no veteran leadership anymore. And with highly rated freshmen eyeing professional careers sooner rather than later, first-year stars can on occasion be motivated to display individual potential (for instance 3-point range) even if it's at the expense of team performance.
But is that first complaint really true? I decided to look a little deeper into the matter by coming up with a ranking of the nation's most consistent programs over the past five seasons.
Kansas has been the most successful team year in and year out in college hoops the past five seasons. What other programs rank among the most consistent? John Gasaway lists his top 10.
