SEC Athletic Directors to Meet In-Person Monday

The SEC is yet to officially announce a decision in reaction to three of the five major conferences moving to conference-only football games for this coming fall.

However, the athletic directors in the league are expected to meet in Birmingham, AL to discuss the future of college football this coming fall, according to Sports Illustrated. This would be the first in-person meeting for the athletic directors in the league since March at the SEC Men’s Basketball Tournament in Nashville before sports were shut down due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Sports Illustrated is also saying this meeting has been planned for at least two weeks, but one would assume the new moves by the Big Ten, ACC and Pac-12 will now have to be in the conversation dealing with the state of the SEC college football season.

The conference moving to league-only games that most impacts Kentucky would obviously be the ACC, considering that would mean the temporary halt of the always contentious rivalry game against Louisville.

SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey yesterday released an initial reaction to the decision by three Power 5 conferences to move to league-only games this fall, which you can read here.
