Implementation of a four-team playoff in college football requires more than just a consensus from the sport’s top conferences. It requires the completion of a four-year period.

The latter part of that equation cannot be overlooked by those eager to implement change to the current system, according to Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive who took part in a Nashville Sports Council event Wednesday at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel.

"Really a lot of this discussion is premature, and I want to respect the process that we're in," Slive said, according to the Associated Press. "We've had four-year formats since we started. We've done it on the basis of four years, so each four-year period you have to sit down and decide what format is going to be going forward.

“So we have decided to sit down and talk about this from every different side."

Discussions on possible adjustments to the BCS system, which determines a national champion at college football’s highest level, began the day after Alabama’s victory over LSU last month. A decision could be made before the end of the year bit would not be implemented immediately.

"What would it look like and whether it's actually going to happen, all of that is premature," Slive said. "I think we need the time to sit down and analyze it. We need time to take ideas back to our respective conferences and ... a decision to be made sometime later this year as we begin to talk about the ... next format."

Slive’s appearance was part of the Comcast Spotlight Sports Speakers Series and was open to members of the Nashville Sports Council as well as the general public.

and just how was the "general public" supposed to know about this event without frequent advance media exposure? Lacking that, apparently comcast and the sports council are working thru a different agenda. I must wonder that if it was "a Nashville Sports Council event Wednesday at the Loews Vanderbilt Hotel" , who paid for it and why weren't we openly invited?

tomba1, I would concur with joe41's comment, a Bronze Level membership to the Nashville Sports Council is $35. Also, you can visit the website and get a list of all activities whether you are a member or not.

Press releases were sent out, it is up to the media to determine what is done with the release. The Sports Council did send out email notification of this event to each member.

It was a ticketed event, but it was open to both members and non-members.

Sorry you were not informed beforehand, but I'd like to invite you to join to ensure this oversight doesn't occur again.
