Tennessee athletic director Dave Hart says the SEC will expand past 13. Hart said...
quote:Hart declined to say who he thinks the 14th school should be.
"I think a lot of the conversation is just where we go from here, obviously, because at some point 13 will not be the number,"..."There are a multitude of components to this that we have yet to really delve into. We will do that in relatively short order, but it's very complex in nature."
"I think to say the least, this is and will be a fluid situation for weeks to come, maybe months to come,"..." No one can really pinpoint that at this moment, and that's just inherent to the whole conference realignment scenario. ... There are too many variables. People understand to some degree the complexity, but they really don't understand the magnitude of the complexity. It's ongoing in nature."
"As Mike (Slive) has said many times, we were not in the market to expand, but when Texas A&M called the commissioner and expressed their strong desire to be a member of the Southeastern Conference, the landscape changed -- as well it should have,"..."I think you have to have vision."
