It's not accurate to say that Louisville and UCONN have won from this crappy conference. Neither of them have been in this new American conference. When realignment happened, it left UC and UCONN out of the action.... UCONN has not recovered. Memphis is just now recovering from being left out of major conferences and a big part is the star power of Penny Hardaway. My guess is that in 5 years, UC will be in worse shape than they were with Mick. If I'm wrong, I'll be here J-Will style.
