It's another offseason of change in college football, but this season sees the first foray into expansion for the vaunted SEC.
Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe is out after the conference nearly collapsed for the second time in just over a year.
Texas A&M and Missouri might be the shiny new objects, but the SEC still lives by its old ways.
Commissioner Mike Slive says the Southeastern Conference transition team that includes Texas A&M is working on scheduling for both a 13- and 14-school league just in case the SEC expands further.
Interim Big 12 commissioner Chuck Neinas says the league is set with 10 teams for 2012 with the addition of TCU, even though Missouri is exploring a possible departure.
SEC athletic directors and Commissioner Mike Slive met Wednesday to discuss the logistics of Texas A&M's entry as the 13th member even though No. 14 might soon be on its way.
