SEC Media Days: Mike Slive Discusses Penn State And Need For Integrity

At the very beginning of the 2012 edition of the SEC Media Days, it's clear that the ongoing drama, scandal and tragedy of the Penn State debacle is on the mind of everyone. From the outset, then, it's not surprising that SEC commish Mike Slive took to the podium to open the proceedings of this week with thoughts on Jerry Sandusky, Joe Paterno and the rest of the news even without mentioning them by name.

The SEC has its own coaching legends and figures that seem to be as big as the programs they represent. Yet Paterno stands as an example that no man is greater than the integrity that he holds and that no one is immune to the ramifications of a bad decision. From Bobby Petrino's absence at this year's event to the mention of the Penn State scandal, this will continue to be a theme throughout this week.
