Fair points.

I think market, fan base and conference affiliation trumps on the field or court success and always will, I guess. If it wasn't for conference shuffling Butler, Utah, TCU would not have benefited (long-term) from their success. The success of UCF helped the AAC, I am sure you are right. But the tv executives care much more about ratings than on-field success. Being in the FLA, DC, Philly and Houston markets is what made that deal sweet. On field or on court results are just not as big of factor, unless we had a promotion and relegation system, as everything else. Loyola of Chicago had a great run last year, and proved it on the court. This year? Their conference tourney winner in and that's it. I know Belmont got in, and that is great, but St. John's, Baylor, Syracuse, etc? Guess I am pessimistic, but I just don't see results moving the needle as much as the money and markets do.
