school issue anymore? As football money has exploded and five power conferences have emerged, it seems like more and more football schools have been able to regularly compete for national championships, with Florida and Ohio State being the two most obvious examples. Other than one Final Four, Texas hasn't really competed for NCs, but it's not for lack of trying. They've poured tons of resources into mens basketball. A lot of once powerful programs (Memphis, Houston, UMass, UNLV) that were left behind in the conference realignment have struggled to recapture past glory, while more football schools have put together elite basketball programs.
