Commissioner

Southeastern Conference

CHANGE FROM 2012: +4

In less than a year, the SEC Network will fire up with perhaps more optimism than any league channel has ever known. Slive took a more cautious approach to a network than his friends at the Big Ten or Pac-12, but the SEC and ESPN also have a road map that might clear the path for a smoother launch. He also this year reaffirmed his leadership position among the commissioners by openly questioning the makeup of the NCAA’s board and advocating for more funds to be part of the athletic scholarship.
