Slive says 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.
