SEC Expansion: The Latest Scuttlebutt

Two conflicting, expansion-related stories are being reported on Big 12-related websites this afternoon.  Both are behind paywalls, so we’ll simply provide you with summary information.  (Sort of silly considering the info will be copy and pasted into a million messageboard posts this afternoon, but hey, we’ll play by the rules).

First, AggieYell.com — the Rivals site for Texas A&M — is reporting that all of the SEC’s presidents and chancellors are at Hartsfield International Airport this afternoon.  AggieYell believes this could be the final vote to invite A&M and to discuss other potential targets for expansion.

However, PowerMizzou.com — the Rivals site for Missouri — is claiming that according to their sources in College Station, “the SEC might be slowing things down.”  According to PowerMizzou, the SEC felt fine bringing in A&M and then taking its time to find School #14.  They do not — supposedly — feel comfortable inviting A&M in the face of total armageddon.  Instead, the site claims, the SEC would rather have a full 14-16 school lineup in place.

Andy Staples of SI.com reports that the SEC should know by tonight whether or not A&M has the nine votes necessary to land an SEC invite.  If so, a deal could be announced tomorrow and then the dominoes could start falling in other leagues.
