WARNING: I’m going to link a Pete Thamel article and then tell you everything that it says. You can click on the link if you want, though.
We all know how Thamel is with “sources” but he says that a high ranking SEC official told him that 11 of the 12 current SEC presidents would meet Sunday at a secret location to discuss the addition of Texas A&M to the league. There will also be discussion about which school should be the 14th member to join the SEC. The presidents have acknowledged that if TAMU is added, a 14th school will also have to be added to maintain even numbers. The official also said that there’s still a 30 to 40 percent chance that TAMU is blocked from league membership and one bit of negotiation among the schools, that may come up, would be that no school from a state that already has an SEC school (Florida State, Georgia Tech, Clemson) be added.
So that’s it. There’s a meeting at a secret location tomorrow and we should get some answers after that. If the bit about not allowing schools in if there’s already an SEC school in their state holds up, then look for a school like Virgina Tech to get some serious consideration. Regardless, we should know a lot more than we do now, tomorrow.
