Texas A&M University President Dr. Bowen Loftin on Sunday issued a statement regarding the Southeastern Conference Presidents and Chancellors announcement that it will not expand to include Texas A&M University.
"As we have seen over the past several days, there has been a considerable amount of misinformation regarding these discussions and any associated timelines. The chairman of our board has indicated that the regents will proceed with tomorrow's agenda item, which authorizes the president of Texas A&M to take all actions related to athletic conference alignment. I will also accept Chairman Branch's invitation to participate in his committee's hearing on Tuesday. These are extremely complex issues, and it is imperative that we proceed methodically and in the best interests of Texas A&M."
The Texas A&M System Board of Regents will meet this afternoon as scheduled. Agenda
