(ON CHANGES TO BCS FORMAT)
SLIVE: I do think we are going tosee changes and I don’t think those changes will be tweaks, that’sthe term that we always use. I think there will be changes. We’re goingto begin to focus in on all these issues over the next six-to-nine months, withthe idea of no-holds barred. We need to take a look at the entire structure andsee what kinds of changes need to be made. But I do really think there will bechanges.”
(ON PLUS-ONE MODEL)
SLIVE: I do thinkthe plus-one has to come back to the table. I’m confident thatwe’ll have a robust conversation about the plus-one and I certainly willwant to make sure that that issue is fully vetted. I think the climate haschanged to some degree, so I’m looking forward to that discussion.
