UW Badgers vs Wofford Not Fair?

The Wall Street Journal actually covers March Madness a lot more than some would think and they led off one of their most recent articles with a fun fact that Wofford is 1/20th the size in school that Wisconsin is, and we think they were just counting the UW's undergrad count. Another fun fact is that Wofford undergrads could fit in Camp Randle 56 times over, my next question is what about the alumni. It would be interesting to know if the Wofford players before March Madness got star treatment as they are actually 1 out of every 88 students on campus, you would think virtually everyone is a friend or at least a friend of a friend of one player. Anyways the point of the article is that they are trying to figure out who does the most with the least, although I can't quite see the logic in thinking that size is a perfect correlation to resources in sports. Duke in fact ranked 6 on the list and last I checked they had some nice resources to win at basketball,heck they don't even completely suck in football every year. If you want you can read the full article and it doesn't cost anything unlike most Wall Street Journal content. The Wall Street Journal is also one of the few publications that picks the Badgers to go to the Final Four and it is likely based on their research that teams with good ball security that can create turnovers are much more likely to pull big upsets, like say over Kentucky.
