Texas A&M SEC Expansion: Where Does the SEC Turn to Even out the League?
Now that it's official that the SEC has accepted Texas A&M as its 13th member, it begs the question of when -- not if -- the league expands to 14 teams.
Or maybe even 16.
For now, let's assume the SEC will go slow and invite just one more member to even out the league. The conference already said that it has NOT extended an invite to Missouri, contrary to published reports. The SEC has been extremely leery of being blamed for a conference's demise -- much as the ACC was blamed several years ago when it almost caused the shuttering of the Big East after it plucked Miami, Virginia Tech and Boston College -- so it's doubtful the SEC will go after Mizzou and put that final nail in the Big 12's coffin.
No, the team that might be more likely is Va Tech. That's just speculation, but the Hokies seem to be a natural choice -- obvious location, consistently excellent program, a team that could step right in an compete.
