Published January 13, 1999
In San Antonio, Tim Griffin reports that the NCAA has "granted initial certification" to the proposed Mardi Gras Bowl, which would be played in Mobile, AL, and could begin in December. ESPN analyst Mike Gottfried has served as the leader for the city in dealing with the NCAA and said that he's "discussing a title sponsorship with the city of Mobile of the game." If certification is granted during the April 26-28 NCAA meeting in Dallas, the game would be televised on ESPN....The NCAA will "sell its controversial jet" as part of its plan to save $23M in "cost avoidance and revenue enhancements." The jet was bought for $1.7M in '88, but could be sold for "more than" $2.8M (EXPRESS-NEWS, 1/13).
