Mike Slive is Not Done Yet

Mike Slive's contract with the SEC expires at the end of the month. He's not ready to retire, though.

Slive Speaks on Cam Newton Ruling

Mike Slive spoke to FanHouse about the Newton ruling today. He didn't receive the final set of facts agreed upon by the NCAA and Auburn until Monday, so that explains the timing somewhat. He also gives three reasons why he didn't rule Newton in violation of the SEC's bylaw, mostly relating to the rule's intent and precedent. Slive also says that he will work to get the loophole in the NCAA rules closed that allows for no real punishment to come from this case based on the facts as known now.

SEC Gets Dubiously Sourced Expansion Rumors

According to a source talking to Jimmy Hyams of Knoxville sports radio station 990 AM the Sports Animal, Mike Slive has met with CBS to discuss possibilities regarding SEC expansion. Supposedly it would only happen if the Big Ten goes to 16, and the targets would be (predictably) Texas, Texas A&M, FSU, and Clemson. Should the Texas schools decline, the next choices would be Miami and Georgia Tech. The SEC issued a swift denial, so caveat emptor and all that. At the very least this one sounds plausible because Plan A would add two teams to each division and we don't have to worry about schools leaving their current divisions. I will say this though: you couldn't find a worse cultural fit for the SEC in the region than Miami. If you already think that Florida seems sort of like an outsider, Miami would feel like something from another planet.
