If nothing else, the Texas A&M-to-SEC rumors have done a fantastic job of getting lots of different people into rooms together. First, Oklahoma officials met to discuss future plans for their school if the Big 12 folds. Now, the SEC has called for "a special meeting" over the weekend that will include the 12 member school presidents, according to MrSEC.com.
A source inside one of the league’s 12 member institutions has confirmed to us that the meeting — or conference call — will take place. (We say conference call, because at least one top SEC administrator is expected to be unavailable for a face-to-face meeting this weekend.)
The timing of the meeting coincides quite well with the Texas A&M rumor, so feel free to put two-and-two together there. Of course, don't limit yourself to just one topic of discussion. If the SEC truly is going to pull the trigger on TAMU, they're probably going to want to lock up a 14th member quickly as well. Perhaps that's part of the discussion?
Or perhaps not. Honestly, we're all grasping at straws until someone tells us otherwise.
