10-3 (100-30) said postgame that ND should be a Final 4 team next year. While a playoff season in '15 is a realistic goal, expecting a marked long-term improvement from BK is not realistic, esp. now that the local recruiting competition just got stiffer.
BK has been a D-1 HC for 11 years. He's had 9 years w/ 3+ losses and 7 years w/ 4+ losses. His 2 seasons w/ 12 wins were the clear outliers. While it's possible that he could have a 50-15 record at ND in his next 5 years, there's nothing in his record to date that would lead to such an expectation.
