SEC Votes Not To Add Texas A&M

The SEC has voted not to extend Texas A&M an invitation to join their conference in time for the 2012-2013 school year, according to reports. All signs pointed Friday to the Aggies being invited to the new conference and accepting that invitation early in the week. Only formalities seemed to remain, but SEC schools have thrown a hitch into those plans.

We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league," Machen said. "We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion. No action was taken with respect to any institution including Texas A&M.

The Aggies could be added in the future, but the vote likely rules out a move in time for the 2012 football season. For now, the Aggies will remain in the Big 12, in an uncomfortable arrangement. No statement has been released from Texas A&M regarding the SEC vote.
