SEC ADs mum on expansion, defer to league commissioner

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Tennessee's interim athletics director said Wednesday that she is referring all questions about possible expansion of Southeastern Conference to the league's commissioner.

During the SEC's annual meeting of athletic directors, Tennessee's Joan Cronan said don't expect any expansion news from the meeting.

"I think all you're going to get from any of us is `no comment,' Cronan said. She added that the ADs "are deferring all questions about expansion to the [SEC] commissioner."

Several other SEC athletic directors declined any comment. The meetings conclude on Thursday.

Reports continue to swirl this week about Texas A&M possibly becoming the SEC's 13th member. Florida president and SEC president and chancellors committee chairman Bernie Machen said recently that though they are satisfied with their current alignment, future conditions may make it advantageous to expand.

Texas A&M plans to take a while before making a decision on its conference affiliation.

School President R. Bowen Loftin has said there is no timetable for any decision and any realignment by Texas A&M will take place after a "lengthy" process.

"What we do, if anything, will be in the best interest of Texas A&M and the state of Texas," Loftin said earlier this week. "We're also very concerned about the members of the Big 12. We don't want the Big 12 to go away. We have no intention of doing anything that might precipitate that."
