It's another offseason of change in college football, but this season sees the first foray into expansion for the vaunted SEC.
Texas A&M and Missouri might be the shiny new objects, but the SEC still lives by its old ways.
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.
or more likely when -- the Southeastern Conference will add a 14th member to join Texas A&M.
Southeastern Conference Commissioner Mike Slive welcomed Texas A&M as the 13th member of the league on Monday and says he doesn't expect to add another team before the Aggies begin play next season.
Needing someone strong and savvy to mend the Big 12, the league has turned to a former Big Eight commissioner who also helped usher in the era of college football as big business.
Tennessee's interim athletics director said Wednesday that she is referring all questions about possible expansion of Southeastern Conference to the league's commissioner.
