SEC commissioner Slive pleased to see Missouri, Texas A&M make debuts

Slive pleased with Mizzou’s transition to SEC

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive was a busy man on Saturday.

To commemorate Texas A&M and Missouri’s 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’s reception and hospitality, calling the Tigers handling of hosting such a highly anticipated matchup “terrific.”

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, “At my age, 9 o’clock is about my limit.”
