Birmingham News: Mike Slive, in his scholarly way, goes Dirty Harry on Jim Delany
Slive’s response to the buzz about Big Ten expansion that started last December and has only gotten louder sounded like Nick Saban’s answer to "commitments" that still want to visit other schools.
Instead of "you shop, we shop," the commish appeared to say, "You flex, we flex."
Football drives the bus of intercollegiate athletics, and the SEC has been hogging the driver’s seat of college football for years.
But what if the ground shifts, as so many amateur seismologists have begun to predict?
What if the Big Ten gets even bigger? What if it poaches schools like Missouri and Nebraska from the Big 12 and Rutgers, Pitt and Syracuse from the Big East to expand all the way to 16 members strong?
That could force the SEC to flex its own muscles and go after heavyweights like Texas and Texas A&M to the west and Florida State and Miami to the east.
It’s all rumor and speculation now, but there’s no mistaking Slive’s warning. He said the SEC will do what it takes to be what it is.
Second to none.
