You don't think the power conferences could hire Cinderallas?

The proposal is not 'should we kick out all the Cinderallas?'

Its 'should we let the NCAA keep over half the money from the tournament for its own operations and subsidizing small schools, or take control of our sports' big moneymaker so it is run for our benefit first and foremost?'

The P6 could form an alliance, hold their own tournament, and extend invitations with $$$ attached to the best mid-major teams to participate if they want. Most of those teams are already used to guarantee games.

But then the P6 would get to decide how many power conference teams to let in, and who gets the money, etc.

Its two different topics. Who should control the tournament and who should be in the tournament. If Cinderellas raise the bottom line and are in the best interests of event revenue, then the P6 can make that decision just as easily as the NCAA does.
