Slive pleased with Mizzou‚Äôs transition to SEC
SEC Commissioner Mike Slive was a busy man on Saturday.
To commemorate Texas A&M and Missouri‚Äôs SEC debuts, Slive handled the coin toss at the Texas A&M-Florida game in College Station, Texas, before boarding a plane bound for Columbia, Mo., to flip the coin at the Georgia-Missouri game.
Slive said that he spoke with Georgia fans about Missouri‚Äôs reception and hospitality, calling the Tigers handling of hosting such a highly anticipated matchup ‚Äúterrific.‚Äù
The commissioner shared the coin toss with administrators from both Missouri and Georgia, including Georgia president Michael Adams and athletic director Greg McGarity.
When asked if he was tired after his busy day, Slive, 72, responded, ‚ÄúAt my age, 9 o‚Äôclock is about my limit.‚Äù
