is reporting that with the addition of Missouri and Texas A&M, the Southeastern Conference raised its total revenue by more than $41 million to $314.5 million, according to the conference's latest federal tax return.
The return, provided late Tuesday night in response to a request from USA TODAY Sports, also shows that commissioner Mike Slive's base compensation for the 2012 calendar year was increased by just over $230,000 to nearly $1.2 million.
