Missouri Athletic Director Denies SEC Expansion Rumors, But Clemson Could Join Texas A&M

The SEC expansion rumors have been flowing fast and furious recently and, apparently, they won't take any breaks for the weekend. The most recent rumors suggest that Missouri won't be joining the Southeastern Conference, but Clemson might.

 Doug Gottlieb sent out a Tweet saying that Missouri was one of those interested in moving to the SEC along with Florida State, Texas A&M and the aforementioned Clemson. Florida State and Texas A&M were already mentioned in earlier rumors, so only Clemson and Mizzou was considered new information.

According to Missouri athletic director Mike Alden, however, Gottlieb's sources were wrong. Alden told Vahe Gregorian that "there's nothing" to Gottlieb's report and his team won't be heading to the SEC.

The report that Clemson and Florida State could both be moving from the ACC to the SEC is still pretty interesting, however, as it seems the Southeastern Conference is trying to make some sort of Super Effective Conference (or whatever 'E' word that could be inserted there to keep the SEC acronym in tact).

Keep an eye on SEC expansion chatter over at Team Speed Kills.
