Media Days: SLIVE SPEAKS

Hey everyone.

I forgot that Mike Slive, the SEC's commish, is speaking first.

So let's hear what he has to say:


  • The 86 Southeastern Conference games played last season drew 6.5 million fans. That's a 76,000 average.

  • The SEC had 49 players drafted last season.

  • On disciplinary troubles: "The problematic behavior of few casts a dark cloud over many."

  • He goes on to discuss players who have done great things. First up was Jordan Anderson, the Auburn swimmer who was named a Rhodes Scholar.

  • He acknowledged the Alabama/Dareus situation and provided a little information about how the SEC requires the school to provide an extensive review. "It's difficult, if not impossible, for institutions to know what might have taken place."

  • "It is time to re-examine the NCAA rules that relate to agents. This is a national problem that requires a national agent strategy for agents -- from enforcement to an assistance-based issue."

  • "We in the SEC look forward to being active participants in this review."

  • On expansion: "As it turned out, the paradigm shift never materialized. In the future, there may be continued interest in conference expansion by some."

  • He spoke/memorialized Myles Brand, the NCAA president who died suddenly last year.

  • This will be Slive's ninth season with the league.

  • That's a wrap.

"I've talked with Coach Saban regarding any of his players that might have been at the event in Miami, and he assured me that no players were there. I consider the matter closed."

"For his cooperation with the SEC investigation, I have assured Coach Saban that our officials will call fewer holding penalties on his team this season."

I challenge JayG to use the word "shug" on Auburn day.

"My salary this year will be tied to the number of fans that attend SEC games. Member institutions, with the exception of Alabama, will be assessed $1 per fan for each home game. Dr. Witt and Mal Moore petitioned me to have Alabama excluded because Coach Saban's contract mandates that he be the highest paid person in the league, and they couldn't afford anymore money -- what with the economy and the cost of players these days."
