Texas A&M Expected To Join SEC, But Does SEC Want Them

There has been a bevy of information this morning surrounding Texas A&M to SEC talk. First this morning news came from the Houston Chronicle that the Aggies were holding a 3 p.m. news conference to announce the move, but now it is coming out that the SEC will not vote in favor of bringing Texas A&M to the SEC because of not being able to find a suitable 14th team and there is a 30 to 40 percent chance of saying no (via Pete Thamel of New York Times):

"We realize if we do this, we have to have the 14th," the SEC official said. "No name has been thrown out. This thing is much slower out of the shoot than the media and blogs have made it."

This would be a huge blow to Texas A&M and their ego if the SEC rejected them and the Aggies had to come back crawling to the Big 12. The Big 12 is having a meeting today at 3 p.m. between Dan Bebee and the athletic directors.

Missouri is the latest school to be rumored to join Texas A&M in the SEC, but school administrators have shot down that idea for Missouri. My money is on Florida State or Clemson.
