THIS JUST IN……from CBS Sports Network

 

 

On this week’s TONY BARNHART SHOW, which airs tonight at 6:30 PM, ET, SEC Commissioner Mike Slive joins Barnhart to discuss SEC football, the BCS system and the plus-one model.

 

Below are excerpts from the interview.  A video clip from the interview is available here: http://bit.ly/zLGyur.

 

(ON CHANGES TO BCS FORMAT)

 

SLIVE: I do think we are going to see changes and I don’t think those changes will be tweaks, that’s the term that we always use. I think there will be changes. We’re going to begin to focus in on all these issues over the next six-to-nine months, with the idea of no-holds barred. We need to take a look at the entire structure and see what kinds of changes need to be made. But I do really think there will be changes.”

 

(ON PLUS-ONE MODEL)

 

SLIVE: I do think the plus-one has to come back to the table. I’m confident that we’ll have a robust conversation about the plus-one and I certainly will want to make sure that that issue is fully vetted. I think the climate has changed to some degree, so I’m looking forward to that discussion.

 

 

The TONY BARNHART SHOW is a weekly one-hour primetime college football talk show.  In addition to Slive, the show features interviews with radio host Paul Finebaum and political pundit James Carville.
