     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).
