Yes it would. Conference champions aren't in any way influenced by out of conference records. You can be 0-4 out of conference and finish 7-5 overall and win the conference over a team that went 11-1 if you best that team head to head.
It's using tortured logic to find an excuse to prop up weaker conferences at the expense of putting the best teams into a playoff.
