First of all...

...the Big East is NOT a mid-major when it comes to basketball.  Far from it.  They've been better overall than the Pac 12 in hoops for a while.

Secondly, UCLA basketball is still a name and draw on a national basis, even if it hasn't earned that right during the Alford era.

You're right about football.  USC is the only major draw, although Washington is making a push, and Stanford hasn't exactly been chopped liver in the past 10 years.  Don't forget that Oregon's limited run isn't exactly ancient history, and UCLA will SOON become part of the national conversation. Soon. Count on it.
