Mike Slive was a fixture in the SEC as the commissioner from 2002 to his retirement in 2015 and was responsible for the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M to the conference as well as seven straight national championships in football at one point. However, the 76-year old was diagnosed with prostate cancer three years ago and that was part of the reason he retired.

Slive will turn 77 in July and it looks like he will have plenty to celebrate on his birthday.
