HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Southeastern Conference commissioner Mike Slive continued his hard push for NCAA reform, saying the Big Five conferences need more autonomy or they will have to make drastic changes.
Slive's remarks came at the beginning of the league's media days on Monday. He said college athletics ''must be willing to make appropriate changes'' and that schools are not ''deaf to the din of discontent'' surrounding the NCAA.
The SEC has discussed several changes to the current system, including full cost-of-attendance scholarships and providing long-term medical coverage to college athletes. The NCAA's board of directors will vote on the Big Five's autonomy request in August.
Slive said he remains optimistic the legislation will pass. The commissioner also discussed the SEC Network, which makes its debut in August.
