I don't think either one of us has anything other than anecdotal evidence to go on, but in my experience the more than casual fan is watching the conference game, unless it's an absolute stinker like Memphis v Temple. Either way, you make it sound like these guys have a choice. What do they do? Just dissolve football because they can't be the SEC? I can tell you that if they did, the SEC or B1G wouldn't get my money instead. If they go 4/16 and shut my school out, the considerable sum of money I spend toward UC football is probably going back to the NFL. I'll be done with college football and I'm sure a lot of other people will be as well.
