SEC commissioner Mike Slive has yet to say anything to say about the tabled 10-second proposal, until he spoke with reporters on Monday at the APSE Southeastern regional meeting. Here is some of what he had to say per AL.com.
quote:Committees that Slive mentioned currently exist in men's college basketball, baseball, but not in college football. The NFL has a competition committee.
In a question-and-answer session with reporters at the APSE Southeastern regional meeting Monday, Slive called for the formation of a competition committee filled with "people who care about the game" that ultimately would be responsible for making recommendations to the NCAA Football Rules Committee.
"This would have been a perfect subject for someone to look at the game itself who cared about the game and then come up with an interpretation," Slive said. "Then and only then would it go to the rules committee for some change in the game because they believed in the long-term best interest of the game that 'this is a good idea or not a good idea.'
"This debate exposed a glaring error in the process. Hopefully we can fill that."
