One of the most powerful men in all of sports stopped by Selma Tuesday night to chat with the Selma Quarterback Club.

SEC commissioner Mike Slive addressed the club’s members first. He discussed his vision for the league and some of the issues facing major college athletics.

The 61-year-old Slive took over as SEC commissioner a year ago and has faced several challenges in his time in office.

But Slive focused on the many positives going on in the SEC.

Slive talked about the interest SEC football generates around the country.

Slive took questions from the crowd and talked about the NCAA, the BCS, conference realignment and graduation rates.

The club will not meet next Tuesday, but on Tuesday, September 23, radio personality Paul Finebaum will be the guest speaker.
