SCOTTSDALE, Ariz — Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany broke his silence concerning conference expansion Wednesday and said almost nothing during a 30-minute chat/filibuster with reporters. A few hours later, SEC commissioner Mike Slive needed about 30 seconds to speak volumes.
Slive poured himself a cup of coffee, took his seat, unfolded a slip of paper and began to read.
“Given the success the SEC has experienced over the past decade, we are very comfortable with the position in which we find ourselves today,” Slive said after a day of BCS meetings. ”
