BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive remains very critical of the NCAA's rules governing agents, an issue that continues to plague his league. "I feel like the current NCAA rules and regulations are part of the problem, they're not part of the solution," Slive said Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press. It was virtually a repeat of his message at SEC media days three years ago when agent-related incidents also prompted investigations at three schools.
