Updated: Texas Higher Ed Committee cancels meeting

texas state capitol

Even if Texas A&M doesn’t announce this week that they’re going to the SEC (or, not going to the SEC), the meetings among A&M’s Board of Regents and the Texas House of Representatives Higher Education Committee were still important gatherings for the future of the Big 12, SEC, and dare we say, the college football landscape.

However, it appears one of those meetings has now been postponed.

And, no, it’s not the Board of Regents meeting; that’s going on while I type this very sentence.

Andy Staples of Sports Illustrated — who is a must-follow on Twitter if you’re into that kind of thing — tweets that the Higher Education Committee has “postponed its hearing on A&M and the SEC.” When, if again, the Committee will meet is still being determined. reports that the meeting was postponed due to the SEC’s currently idle stance on expansion.

If you’ll recall from last summer, Texas’ state legislature was set to meet to discuss a possible move by multiple institutions to what would have been the Pac-16. That meeting never happened.

Could this delay be a result of similar circumstances? Stick around.

UPDATED 4:47 p.m. ET: The meeting scheduled by the Higher Ed Committee has been CANCELED.

So, yeah. There you have it.

    Pac-16 meeting: canceled.
    SEC meeting: canceled.

    Pretty soon they’ll cry wolf one too many times and no one will listen.

    They’re trying to get the SEC to make the first move… which it won’t. They’re (the SEC, I mean) not that stupid. They extend an offer or express an interest in expansion, and the ‘tampering’ word starts getting thrown around. Nice try, THEC.
