The SEC Presidents held a meeting last night in Atlanta, and the early word filtering out of that meeting indicates that Texas A&M received the sufficient amount of votes to gain an invitation to join the Southeastern Conference.
There will likely be a press conference today following last night’s vote, and President R. Bowden Loftin will accept the invitation.
Also, there are rumblings that SEC Commissioner Mike Slive has been given authority by the SEC presidents to negotiate with both West Virginia and Missouri to possibly be the fourteenth conference member.
This could get very interesting.
Update: Baylor has withdrawn their approval of Texas A&M withdrawing from the Big XII, and there could be a possible suit pending. The SEC will not approve TAMU until this possible suit gets resolved or dropped. Look, Baylor has no choice here but to fight to keep this thing together. They are the about to be homeless – as in no conference to call home – because the Big XII is about to fall apart.
