SEC Spring Meetings Wrap: $20.7 Million Distributed Per School

That's a WrapThe SEC 2013 spring meetings are over.  Here are a few final news and notes from Destin.

- The SEC distributed just under $290 million to its 14 members for the 2012-2013 school year. That works out to $20.7 million per school.  $14.1 million from bowl games and $980,000 for NCAA academic enhancement are not included in the totals. The individual school distribution increased $600,000 from last year, when the league had 12 members.. The total distribution is $45.4 million greater than last year. Here’s a breakdown of the league distributions every year since 1980.

- The SEC wants the NCAA to take the lead on head injuries.  According to Jon Solomon at AL.com, “The SEC wants the NCAA to examine possible revisions to playing rules in various sports, including football, and collect national data. The SEC stopped short of offering specific ideas publicly.”

- As expected, the SEC will remain at eight conference games, at least for a few more years.  The format is still 6-1–1 – six divisional games, one permanent cross-divisional rival and one rotating divisional rival.  Currently, Arkansas is paired with South Carolina and Missouri with Texas A&M as permanent rivals.  That will change in 2014 when Arkansas will start to see Missouri on an annual basis and the Aggies and the Gamecocks will become yearly rivals.

- Speaking of scheduling, we mentioned in our headlines roundup today that it looked like Texas A&M would be cancelling series against Oregon and Southern Cal.  The USC series is off but it looks like the two games against Oregon in 2018 and 2019 are still on.

- SEC basketball coaches are looking at ways to curb the transfer trend.  One of the ways to do that would be take a hard line on exemptions and hardship waivers.  Auburn coach Tony Barbee: “One of the things that we’ve discussed as coaches that we’d like to see go away is all of the exemptions and waivers that are available. If you decide to transfer, we feel as coaches that you should have to sit out a year, regardless of individual situations.”
