Texas issues statement in response to reported interest in joining SEC
It’s Day 3 of SEC Media Days in Hoover, Alabama, but the biggest Southeastern Conference story of the day involved two teams currently in the Big 12. The college football world was rocked by a report from Brent Zwerneman of the Houston Chronicle that Texas and Oklahoma have reached out to the SEC about joining the conference.
“Speculation always swirls around collegiate athletics. We will not address rumors or speculation.”
As many noted, that statement is far from a firm denial.
This story doesn’t appear to be quieting down any time soon.
