It's a moot point though, Kentucky is going nowhere.
UK would be a much more attractive candidate than Kansas to a prospective conference, period. IDK why you want to discredit it, but averaging 65-69k fans per game year after year is a huge deal, especially when considering how generally lackluster Kentucky's football teams have been.
Stadium size and attendance are huge lynchpins in any school's desire to join/move conferences.
I do agree that your initial point about "Kentucky looking to bolt" was silly.
