That's why making the tournament is important. It's the establishment of a tradition where before one didn't exist. Finishing in the top 4 of the ACC or whatever is nice, but it's not going to do much in terms of establishing "tradition." Winning conferences does, making the tournament does, and doing well in the tournament does. Fair or not, it's just how it is - you play to make the tournament. Do that a few times and you keep the fans interested, do it enough and interest remains strong even during lean years. Don't do it enough, and people just stop caring.
It's just how it works.
