They don't care about Wichita State, Dayton, Xavier, or even Cincinnati or Memphis. If the Power 5 breaks off and does its' own thing, they'll be completely fine without mid and low majors.

The rest of Division I will continue to give the Power Five folks all they want in football with the hopes of preserving present DI basketball.

That's the bargaining chip I think the non power 5 schools have right now. Tell the power 5 they will not pursue anti trust lawsuit if/when they try to break and only play each other in football if they will start giving more automatic bids to the NCAA bball tournament to the non power 5.

The problem with that is membership in the NCAA is completely voluntary. The power 5 schools could literally form their own version of the NCAA, and maybe include the A-10, Big East, and one other conference to have 8 basketball conferences. Still keeps teams like Georgetown and Villanova included but cuts out what they don't want to fool with anymore.
