Status quo most likely option for SEC

But the majority of the presidents, athletic directors and football coaches in the SEC are in favor of keeping the league right where it is with 12 schools — regardless of what the Big Ten or Pac-10 does.

Still, that doesn’t mean the SEC wouldn’t be opportunistic.

Broadening the league’s borders would be favorable to some in the league, which would bring in new markets, create new recruiting territories and introduce SEC football to a brand new collection of fans.
