SEC commissioner Mike Slive takes his place behind the mics to officially open up his league’s three-day media event in just about 15 minutes. We’ll provide you with a summary of his big points in a live, running blog — hit refresh from time to time if you need to — and then we’ll swing back around with some direct quotes.
Meanwhile, anything of note that happens in another room or on radio row… we’ll keep you updated on that, too. More than 1,000 passes were handed out to media (and fans disguised as media) for these events. Quite honestly, anything can happen.
Over the next few hours we’ll give the live blog treatment to Slive, Kevin Sumlin, Steve Spurrier, Gary Pinkel and James Franklin. And it all gets underway shortly.
