Is Bobby Bowden turning Florida State into a basketball school?

I realize this is the first time in more than a decade that Florida State has advanced into the NCAA Tournament, but I’m going to ask the question anyway:
Could the Seminoles ever become a basketball school?
By that I mean could FSU fans ever get more excited about basketball than they do football?
You’re going to laugh at my answer, but I say YES. It would take a confluence of unfortunate football circumstances, but I believe, yes, it could happen.
