Playing on neutral floors helps better prepare teams for the NCAA tournament-- which is kinda the point of it all. As a coach, you do your best for your kids, not for the university's perceived state of mind. Neutral sites also tend to help financially those programs that typically sell out home dates and also gives a national TV and recruiting boost, especially if those neutral games are in a recruit's backyard.
Having said that, I think keeping all college games on campus would have been a great idea. However, it's long since gone. It went the way of the Dodo when big money reared its head. The NCAA (and her parent universities) are chasing billions and obviously care not a whit about education or helping young people.
