KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart
says the Southeastern Conference will expand again and officials at
each school need to have a number of frank discussions before
Hart says the addition of Texas A&M as the SEC's 13th team was a
good one, but the league's leaders must take their next steps
deliberately because the SEC will expand again. He says those
conversations will take place "in short order."
The SEC announced Sunday that Texas A&M will join the conference
in July after leaving the Big 12. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said
later in the week that the league's presidents and chancellors are
not currently considering any other schools for admission and that
he anticipates having no additional members for the 2012-13 season.
