be a mediocre team in a bad conference? Example: if vandy moved to the Big east would that be beneficial to them? Would they be able to jump start their program and finally get recruits in because they when a couple more games?
I know it is just better to build a good program in a good conference, but how different would the history of the bottom dwellers of the sec be if they had grown up in a different conference?
I think the best situation is the one in which you win the most games. Look at Boise and TCU. Neither are in powerhouse confrences, but both have surpassed many BCS schools in national attention, fan base, revenue, and trophy case size. I don't think either school could regularly compete against teams in the SEC, Big 12, or Pac 12 due to the fact that they have smalll stadiums, enrollments, endowments, and recruiting draw compared to teams like AU, UA, USC, UGA UF, Texas, OU, ect. I think TCU might be able to compete in the Big East, though. Winning is always better, even if the opponents suck.

So then why don't teams like vandy and kentucky jump to crappier conferences?
Bad team in good conference like SEC still gets lots of $$$... good team in bad conference doesn't get it unless ESPN blesses you with their coverage fairy.
Seriously, don't take me too serious.
