RE: As no one remembers the losing 4 teams in the Final Four

I understand your point, but getting to a Final Four brings a TON of exposure. You cut the nets down for a reason when you win your region.
That's why they measure the great coaches by Final Fours and NC's. It's why you don't hear Norm Stewarts name (aside from Coaches vs. Cancer) mentioned on national TV when theu talk about great coaches like Denny Crume, Coach K, Dean Smith, Rupp, Donovan, Izzo, Self, Pitino, Calipari, Boeheim, Calhoun, etc.
The Final Four defines coaches and their careers, as well as their teams.
