It wasn't exactly the Cabbage Patch or the Whip/Nae Nae, but former SEC commissioner Mike Slive showed off some of those nifty dance moves during Vanderbilt's home opener Thursday night against Western Kentucky.
While the Commodores lost a heart-breaker 14-12, they won't help but smile at this act of pure, unadulterated awesomeness:

Will Smith must be so proud.
Slive, who retired earlier this summer and was replaced by Greg Sankey, was being recognized by Vandy during the SEC's first Prostate Cancer Awareness Game of the season. Slive was originally diagnosed with prostate cancer in the late 1990s. Last October, he announced that he was dealing with a recurrence of the cancer and stepped down at the end of the year after serving as commissioner for 13 years.
All 14 SEC schools will honor Slive with one game this season. Hopefully, we'll see more dancing.
