Texas A&M Schedules Board Of Regents Meeting; SEC, Conference Alignment On Agenda

The Texas A&M rumors -- and SEC expansion rumors -- are accelerating at a breakneck pace, with reports coming from all angles and indicating about a million different things on this fine Friday afternoon. The latest report indicating the SEC plans to hold a special media seems to have been shot down, and all the action seems to be taking place in College Station at this point. And boy is there action in College Station, including a Board of Regents meeting that could have a large impact on the Aggies' conference home.

The key point in the Board of Regents agenda, which is set for Monday, is the following, which calls for the Texas A&M president to be given authority to take whatever actions necessary relating to alignment.

Item 15 – Authorization for the President to Take All Actions Relating to Texas A&M University’s Athletic Conference Alignment, The Texas A&M University System

If we're reading this correctly, it sounds as though the agenda item is a rubber-stamp. The Board of Regents will transfer the authority for conference decisions to the president, and that will be that from the Aggies' side.
