COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Southeastern Conference
Commissioner Mike Slive says next week's meeting of Bowl
Championship Series leaders is "just another step in the process"
toward refining the oft-criticized system.
Slive visited Texas A&M on Friday and met with reporters before
he participated in a panel on conference realignment. Texas A&M
bolted from the Big 12 last year and will begin competing in the
SEC in July.
BCS leaders are scheduled to convene Monday in Hollywood, Fla.,
when the Football Bowl Association holds its annual meetings. Slive
would not say what he hopes the meeting will accomplish,
characterizing it as a "sharing of ideas." At least four options
are up for discussion - minor tweaks to the current system, a
"plus one" format, a four-team playoff and a four-team playoff
plus other games.
