Slive: SEC not currently considering other schools


Commissioner Mike Slive says no other schools are currently being considered as 14th members of the Southeastern Conference.

Slive said Tuesday that Texas A&M is the only school to apply for membership. The Aggies will join the SEC next July, a move that was ushered in with festivities in College Station.

Slive and Texas A&M President R. Bowen Loftin said in a conference call that a transition team of senior administrators from both will work on a transition plan, including scheduling.

Slive declined to discuss what would make a potential 14th member appealing, saying "we'll just see how the future plays out." He reiterated that he expects to have 13 teams in 2012-13. He says the SEC will begin talks this year to rework its TV deals.
