SEC Expansion: Reports Conflict On Rumored SEC Meeting To Consider Texas A&M

The SEC expansion rumors had various people reporting that the Southeastern Conference would have a secret meeting to consider Texas A&M as its newest member. Said meeting may or may not have happened on Sunday morning, however, depending on who is reporting on it.

The Associated Press confirmed Saturday's New York Times report saying that the current SEC members would be meeting on Sunday in Atlanta to see if everyone wants A&M in their power conference, but The Sporting News is reporting that no such meeting was scheduled to take place.

The New York Times reported that 11 of 12 SEC presidents are planning to meet Sunday. However, a Sporting News source very close to the situation said that no such discussion or meeting is planned.

The source also confirmed that, to date, there has been no formal discussion about which program, if there is a Texas A&M addition, could join the conference next. But, the source added, there is no chance of the expansion stretching beyond 14 teams.

Considering there hasn't been any news to come out about the meeting as of this writing, it seems the Sporting News may have had correct information. Since it was deemed a secret meeting, though, maybe it did actually happen and there just weren't any members of the committee willing to blab to the media.
