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."
