well that is if success on the field and tv ratings dont matter.KSU has no National championships in any sport. They have no TV markets. They are in a bigger mess than almost any other school involved in the realignment saga.
because KSU fb win % in the B12 is the 3rd highest in the league. number of league titles is also 3rd in the league.
KSU average viewer numbers last year would make them the 4th most watched team in the B12 and the 3rd most watched team in the PAC12.
Their TV numbers from last year would be an upgrade over everyone in the PAC12 except USC and Oregon.
Their viewers are almost equal to Iowa State and only trail OU, UT, and OSU.
i think perception is not reality
