Maybe Cumberland can get some love this year whether it's first team or honorable mention.
In terms of spinning data. You look back to 1958 until 2016 (which is where the resource I had stopped) and you look at first team All Americans. UC would be tied for 11th (or so). UCLA, Duke, NC, KY, KU, IU, OSU, GeoTown, PU, LSU. I am sure there could be a mistake or two in there somewhere so let's just say top 15 at worst.

We all know the stat about making consecutive tourneys as well. Only about 5 programs are with us there. UC sits 13th on the all time NCAA wins list. We are tied for 9th in all time NCAA Championships. 10th in F4's. If my sources are right.

Hard to argue against a top 15 program and maybe close to top 10 all time. As I said it depends on how you spin it...and I don't know why a UC fan or coach would want to spin it any other way.
