Slive: Changes to BCS at least couple years away

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The man who helped propose the plus-one plan to find a national champion in football says actual change remains a couple years away even if everyone can agree on changes to the Bowl Championship Series.

Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive said Wednesday a decision could be made later this year but cautioned it's premature to speculate on what changes might be made.

He says they need time to sit down and analyze plans with discussions needed among the conferences.

Slive also says they need to look at any change very carefully considering the tradition of bowl games.

The Big Ten helped stop the proposal back in 2008 and now is interested in changes.

Slive says it's gratifying to see others willing to embrace the proposal.
