The Southeastern Conference (SEC) could have a new member by as early as Wednesday, according to multiple media reports.
Mr. College Football via Twitter said, “Not a done deal yet but announcement on Texas A&M to SEC could come Wednesday. Then the real fun begins.”
Also via twitter was this report from Texas A&M beat reporter Billy Liucci, “SEC presidents meeting/voting today. Translation: Ags have officially submitted their request for admission into SEC.” (Source).
And what school will become the SEC’s 14th member? Dennis Dodd of CBS reported tweeted, “Latest on SEC No. 14: West Virginia/Missouri.”
The conference expansion drama continues to unfold.
SEC interest in Missouri would result in further destabilization of the Big XII—a conference teetering on the precipice. Reports indicate Oklahoma could soon forge its way westward and seek admission into the Pac-12.
A move by either Missouri or Oklahoma would likely spell the end of the Big XII and signal a grab as the SEC, Pac-12 and Big Ten cherry pick the remainder of the conference.
The era of the super-conference is nigh.
