MSU Prez Talks About Expansion Future

Mississippi State president Mark Keenum told The Jackson Clarion-Ledger today that an expansion slow-down caused by Baylor’s legal threats is “very frustrating.”  The news of Baylor’s decision to threaten litigation greeted the league’s presidents when they arrived in Atlanta for a meeting last night:

“We came in from all across the Southeast and right when we’re about to walk into the meeting, the dynamic of the meeting had already changed.”

So what comes next on the expansion front?

“You’re going to have discussions about where we go from here, a lot of hypothetical.  But no one knows, I’ll tell you that.  We can’t get 14, 15 or 16 until we get 13, if that ever happens.

If we stay at 13 for the forseeable time in the future, I’m very confident our chancellors and athletic directors would be able to make it work.  We’re not dwelling (on) who the 14th school will be.  That will work itself out in time.”
