BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive is focused on the future of the successful league.
The 72-year-old Slive believes the upcoming SEC Network and the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M ``help ensure that the SEC can continue to maintain its prominence'' among the nation's conferences for decades.
Football scheduling will be a bigger short-term issue at next week's SEC spring meetings in Destin, Fla. Slive says discussion of such possibilities as a nine-game league schedule will prove that ``the First Amendment is alive and well.''
He says he hasn't seen a model that doesn't have some potential drawbacks.
As for his own future, Slive has one more year left on his contract. When retirement does come, Slive says he feels he'll ``walk away with a sense of satisfaction.''
