Well, we thought that Texas A&M was about to be invited to join the SEC. But the SEC just made an announcement that amounts to a great big “Psyche!” I was already looking forward to the addition. The door isn’t closed yet, so you Aggies need to keep your fingers crossed. Watch the video below.
Here’s the statement released by Bernie Machen, the president of the University of Florida chair of the Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors:
The SEC Presidents and Chancellors met today and reaffirmed our satisfaction with the present 12 institutional alignment. We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league. We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion. No action was taken with respect to any institution including Texas A&M.
