On the other hand we could say the results have happened very quickly compared to most legit program builds.It is all part of the process. As ISU keeps getting better, better players will see the clones as an option. I would agree with the original poster, the next step is to get more talent, and I think that is happening, just a a slower rate than fans want.
Usually it's like 3-8, 5-7, 6-6, etc. by season before breaking through and ISU sky rocketed.
