This thought that you can only have one or the other boggles my mind. In hindsight would I trade them? Sure. But it's not like you can't have both. If you want to get into the debate of whether or not Bill Self coaches his team with one of those goals in mind over the other, then that's a different conversation. Winning your conference every year just guarantees that you'll have a shot at a National Title, which in a one and done format is all you can really hope for.
As far as regular season titles being meaningless goes, they're no more meaningless than a conference tournament title or a Final Four berth. The only thing that really has meaning at the end of the day is a National Title. Only one team is going to win that, so you might as well pick up as much as you can on the ride.
