5. Middling mid-majors— Everyone wondered heading into the spring whether Butler's advance to the national championship game would change the recruiting paradigm. If players begin to believe that they can earn more immediate playing time yet still compete for college basketball's grand prize, will more blue-chip prospects choose schools in mid-major conferences?

The answer to that question thus far — and again, a lot of decisions remain outstanding — is no, and the likely explanation resides above. Because the major conferences have closer ties to national television, and television exposure is linked to NBA exposure, high-majors still hold a clear advantage. As we saw during the conference expansion hullabaloo earlier this summer, television dictates terms at an institutional level, much less recruiting.
