It seems through all the threads relating to the conference realignments that we accept that football rules the roost. I agree that it does...now. However I wonder if others share my suspicion that in the near future football may not be the play-maker. From my perspective the interest in the FB bowl games is nowhere what it was 30 years ago while the interest in the BB NCAA playoffs has grown exponentially in the same time frame. I believe the TV exposure of college BB is growing as its market grows as I believe that people are realizing that BB is more fun to watch on the tube. To me that reads that significantly more revenue will be coming in from BB in the future, something that should weigh in consideration of conference alignment.
