Arkansas Chancellor Says There’s No Expansion Vote Scheduled Yet

Arkansas chancellor David Gearhart had no news to share on a SEC possible expansion vote when he spoke with Robbie Neiswanger of yesterday:

“(Texas A&M) notified their conference that they want out.  And they’ve made no bones about the fact they want to come to the SEC.  But I don’t think… well, I know… there hasn’t been an invitation.  I think that remains to be seen.  There’s not any meetings scheduled at this point.

Of course there could be a called meeting at some point.  But right now, I don’t have anything on my calendar so I think it’s just wait and see at this point.”

Gearhart also talked about Texas A&M being a “great university” and “one of the best public research universities in the country.”  But…

“I think we have to be careful that it doesn’t affect revenue and it could be a revenue enhancement and that would probably be good.  And of course it depends on the school.  We would want to have a prestigious school, an institution that would be of the same caliber and certainly A&M is.”

Gearhart also got into the question of 13 schools versus 14:

“It could be done with 13, but it would be so much easier to go to 14.  Who that would be hasn’t even been openly discussed.”
