I think he's right.
College basketball is better when UK, Duke, Carolina, and UCLA are good.
College football is better when Miami, ND, FSU, USC are good.
MLB is better when the Yankees, Cards, Reds, Dodgers are good.
the NFL is better when the Packers, Cowboys, Steelers [bleh] and Raiders are good.
Some teams are just 'above' the others in the pecking order. People can root for or against them depending on their preference. When the Marlins are winning, not as many care. When the Rams are winning, not as many care. Boise State has been an interesting story at times in college football, but it ain't the same as when those Golden Domers are on top.
Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
Cincinnati Bengals - None
Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98
