SEC Commissioner Still Pro-Playoff, With Reservations

I think we all know Mike Slive just wants to see if he can take every spot in an eventual college football Final Four:

"Knowing that any team in our league with one or two losses is one of the top two teams in the country, then I'd have to think very hard about the plus-one absent other kinds of changes. There may be other changes that are laid out on the table that need to be clearly thought out. But we'll go to the table with the plus-one very much in mind."

Slive's gone from reacting to Auburn's 2004 snub by forming a renegade mini-playoff faction with ACC commish John Swofford (which was hooted down by other conference bosses) to saying he'd prefer stipulations first. That'll happen when you beat them at their own game.
