Is Conference Realignment More About Money or Recruiting?
Almost seems like a chicken or the egg argument. Can't get the recruits without money, but can't get the money without recruits and players.
I think Big 10 especially had its eye on Texas recruiting more than the money and as a secondary target, Missouri. When Neb and EIU had their hay days, they owned Missouri recruiting.
