It has been a wild weekend for the SEC, as the Texas A&M Aggies moved the conference expansion conversation into high gear. T. Kyle King of Dawg Sports was in Las Vegas at the time, and he finally...

Seven Reasons I'm Glad I'm an SEC Fan After Conference Expansion

Texas A&M turned down invite to join P10 in mtg today with P10's Larry Scott and Kevin Weiberg in College Station, a Big 12 AD confirms.

Chip Brown brings us the latest. If that's true, it can mean only one of two things. Either the Big 12 is going to be saved, after all, or the Aggies are SEC-bound. Go 'Dawgs!

My source tells me we haven't been given a deadline yet, but we will make a decision by the end of next week. We can't have an official Board of Regents meeting without posting the meeting 72 hours ahead of time. The Board will have decided what they are going to decide by Tuesday, and it will be officially announced by Friday.

The above assessment comes from a longtime family friend, native Texan, and Texas A&M alum with longstanding ties to the institution in College Station. Evidently, Mike Slive's reported presence there today was for the purpose of reassuring board members that they should not opt for the Pac-16 merely out of fear that a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. With Larry Scott hand-delivering invitations to the Big 12 South (sans Baylor), the SEC commissioner was there to make it clear that the Southeastern Conference is one of the Aggies' options. The more I read and the more I hear, the more convinced I become that Texas A&M will become the thirteenth member of the SEC within a week. Go 'Dawgs!
