Expectations?

What kind of expectations should be levied upon a basketball program such as Oregon State's? I believe some of the pre-existing conditions should be taken heed to: Corvallis isn't in the best place at such a distance from a metropolis, and Gill is not a very attractive arena. With this being said, the Beavers haven't made the NCAA Tournament since 1990, a 24 year streak with no signs of slowing.

Oregon State should demand more out of its program. In a 5 year period, the team should make at least one tournament (meaning a top 6 finish in the Pac-12) and preferably two, make at least two NITs (.500 conference), and have at least one down year. I think down years should be expected and accepted as fans; it's a necessary evil for most programs including OSU's. In 6 years, Coach Craig Robinson has delivered a 93-102 (38-68) record. There have been 3 CBI appearances, 0 NIT and 0 NCAA berths. Should more not be expected? Expecting a winning record and 8-12 wins in the Pac consistently doesn't seem like too much to ask.

This post leads into the question of a Coach Robinson replacement. If replaced, who ought to replace him? Women's basketball found a gem with Coach Rueck, is there anyone similar to him to coach the men's team?
