Hard to say. It seems in recent years that the selection committees have largely stopped paying attention to what happens in conference tournaments in baseball and softball. That may be in response to complaints that teams were being punished for poor showings in those tournaments.
One area where it actually helps is that it eliminates the two definite losses that all teams other than the champion were going to get. That will help teams that come into the tournament a couple of games over .500 but that have the RPI to get in.
I think we'll have to see how it plays out. You could very well be correct.
