I care about the conference title. A consistent season of success is more indicative of how good your team is than a few games in March are. And besides, it would be nice to keep the streak going. If Haith's Mizzou team was able to break it, I'd have a lot of respect for them.
Both MU and KU should at least get #2 seeds regardless of the outcome of their games against each other (the Big 12 champion generally gets a #1). High seeds are by no means a guarantee of success, though, as any KU (or Duke, UK, or UNC) fan knows.
