To answer your question, noone really. UNLV and Murray St are legit, probably St Mary's, SDSU and Creighton, a few others, too. Point is to surround those teams with attention, call them "Cinderellas," and other names, make it difficult psychologically to break through for the key wins they need.
Big 10, Big 12, ACC and Big East "pay for the lights" and therefore need to be fed at the trough come March-April.
