In a nutshell, it says that the presidents of Florida, UGA, South Carolina and Kentucky will vote together to block admission of any of the following: Miami, FSU, GT, Clemson or Louisville. I believe the "GA" to be true. Furthermore, the SEC already has the flagship schools in those four states so there would be no expansion of footprint and minimal improvement in TV market by adding them. If the SEC expands, I think they'll go after schools in states where they do not currently have a presence.http://www.mrsec.com/2011/08/a...reement-theory/

The SEC annexed Missouri because it substantially increased their TV footprint. Mizzou got them the 18th largest state with over 6 million people, plus the St. Louis (21st) and Kansas City (31st) TV markets.Missouri is a completely new market area for the SEC, and of the 10 states that make up the conference footprint, Missouri is the 5th largest in terms of TV sets. It's larger than Alabama, South Carolina, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana and Kentucky.. FSU would have delivered nothing new in the way of TV markets. Missouri, regardless of how their teams fare in the SEC, will add $$$ when the SEC renegotiates their TV contract. The same is true in spades when Texas A&M is added into the mix.
