He was the right man at the right time for the SEC and for A&M. Gig 'em

Wow Shocked

Indeed, sad to hear this. I knew Slive led the SEC well, but I had no clue as to his overall impact and success. To wit, the SEC’s market value is $4.77 billion. Incredible!

For all that Mike Slive has done for the SEC and for Texas A&M in particular, I offer an honorary:

HERE.

Vaya con Dios, Mike. Pray

Pray Our thanks for his foresight and wisdom in targeting A&M for inclusion into the SEC.

Texas A&M and Aggies everywhere owe an enormous debt of gratitude to Mike Slive and his memory. As a conference commissioner, Mike presciently interpreted the college athletics game board and Texas A&M's impact upon it through a 20/20 lens much sooner and more clearly than his colleagues and competitors .... especially his rival strategists in Austin.

Mike Slive was and will always be a seminal and honorable friend of Texas A&M.

God speed to Mike Slive.
