The Southeastern Conference (SEC) released a statement regarding a Monday meeting of its presidents and chancellors. The SEC said the meeting discussed the “changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics.”

However, the SEC said it took no action on the issue of conference expansion/realignment.

The official release follows:

“The Presidents and Chancellors of the Southeastern Conference met on Monday for its regularly-scheduled fall meeting. While they discussed a wide range of issues dealing with the changing landscape of intercollegiate athletics, no actions were taken with regards to expansion.” (SOURCE)

It looks like a few more days of speculation before anyone knows the fate of Missouri or the next move by the SEC. Will the SEC expand to prevent a nightmare 13-team schedule in 2012? It seems likely, but fans must wait on further details from the latest round of SEC meetings.
