The news from today:
The Southeastern Conference is staying just at it is - for now.
However, the game of major college conference realignment appears far from finished.
University of Florida President Bernie Machen, the chairman of the league's presidents and chancellors committee, said the group met Sunday and "reaffirmed our satisfaction with the present 12 institutional alignment."
Machen said no action was taken regarding Texas A&M or any other schools. He didn't, however, close the door on change.
"We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league," Machen said in a statement. "We discussed criteria and process associated with expansion."
The Aggies reportedly are looking to leave the Big 12. The Texas A&M System board of regents is to meet Monday, and among the items on the agenda is conference alignment.
I am not really losing a lot of sleep over this stuff at this point. Whatever happens, happens. I have a side note to mention re. ESPN's coverage of this issue though.
It was very amusing to see how ESPN pundits and personalities seem to go out of their way this weekend to poo poo all over this story, rooting for this A&M to SEC concept not becoming a reality. Of course none of those guys mentioning nothing about the reeking COI given ESPN's new deal with Texas Longhorns. It just reconfirmed to anyone watching all these happenings closely, how brazenly corrupt ESPN's corporate media empire has become over the years.
Anyway, I think ESPN's battle is going to be a losing one because I don't see how A&M and other schools can stay in their current toxic forced marriage with Texas. It's a matter of time there will be "anarchy" in college football. It will be amusing to see how it all plays out.
