SEC presidents say they are happy with what they have -- at least for now

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama -- Saying they are satisfied with the current, 12-team structure, SEC presidents met today and said the league had not taken action in regards to the possible addition of Texas A&M.

That means Texas A&M, Texas and the Big 12 will have to come to terms after the Aggies reportedly considered bolting the league. Or, that Texas A&M has to get its ducks in a row before the league seriously considers an addition to the SEC.

Florida's Bernie Machen, chairman of the Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors, issued a statement through the SEC office a few minutes ago:

"The SEC Presidents and Chancellors met today and reaffirmed our satisfaction with the present 12 institutional alignment. We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league. We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion. No action was taken with respect to any institution including Texas A&M," Machen said.
