If you're a basketball lover (and I am) you will know that the new ACC is a monster conference!!! I cant't believe it! I also agree that Basketball shouldn't let football dictate it's outcome and marketing. Football may pay the bills at most of the power conferences, but ask Duke what sport pays the bills, ask a 'Cuse or Georgetown, even ask Kentucky!!!! The Big East was THE basketball conference and with its demise - the ACC will emerge as the King of the Hill with every game having a March Madness feel. I've been to Bowl games before but nothing tops the feel of a Basketball conference home game (Duke, Indiana, Michigan, Gerogetown, Syracuse and I will add Florida and Kentucky for the SEC).
It boils down to who you are serving - and with the changes that may come to football in the next 5 -10 years (due to safety), basketball may become the new sport of the future.

I just did a little history search on SEC basketball....only three different schools have held the title ...Kentucky, Florida, and Arkansas - that's it. There have been 5 different B1G teams that have held the title and they have a bigger history of going to the Final 4. Kentucky and Florida are SEC basketball (Coach Donavan is a Legend in my book - HOF no doubt). The rest of the SEC programs need to steal a page from their playbooks. There's a reason why they are the cream of the SEC (basically Florida is the Cream of the SEC - Kentucky is very different with the one and done thing going on).

The SEC also can't lose to "cupcakes" in the non-conference and expect anyone to appreciate their conference battles. Do a team series like the ACC does with the Big 10, I'm sure both of those conferences will be willing to do this with the SEC.
Kentucky's loss today gives your article validity....Bravo Zulu!!!!
