The Southeastern Conference is not extending an invitation to Texas A&M to become its 13th member
, but isn't ruling out adding the Aggies in the future.
"We recognize, however, that future conditions may make it advantageous to expand the number of institutions in the league," University of Florida president Dr. Bernie Machen said.
A high-ranking source within Texas A&M confirmed to ESPN's Doug Gottlieb on Saturday the Aggies were intent on joining the Southeastern Conference. And they reportedly hope to begin play in the league starting as soon as 2012.
