and you forgot about Morris Peterson

While burning out may be a legitimate factor, I don't think the fact that the Big 10 having 3-4 teams with legit title hopes makes it more of a disappointment if one of them doesn't win it. Doesn't make Duke, Kansas, Louisville, etc. have any less of a shot. If you do away with conference affiliation and just line all the times up, you wouldn't be surprised if a bunch of experts picked teams outside of the Big 10 to win it. You have to win 6 games with a bit of luck along the way (even if you have an all decade team).
