A bit, sure. I don't want Duke, but I've heard a lot of rumblings that Slive basically feels like the battle for football supremacy is over and is setting his sights on basketball. If this is, in fact, the case, it could be the death blow for NCAA.
If we get the four super conference structure that we appear to be heading towards, those conferences will likely form their own association and operate outside the NCAA for football. If the SEC takes over basketball, it's not hard to imagine Slive, Delany, and company doing the same thing with basketball. No reason to think they would want to share the pie to fund a bunch of mid majors.
That would be great for football but terrible for basketball, IMO.
