    NEWS: The SEC presidents are meeting this morning, sources tell @SINow, in a call that was *not* previously scheduled.

    This morning’s meeting is to explore the weekend’s news. There is not necessarily expected to be any kind of vote.

    Scott Satterfield(Louisville football of the ACC) said as of this morning he was told the ACC is moving forward no matter what other conferences do.

    “That’s what we will do until we hear otherwise.”

    Tuesday could be a significant day in CFB history.

    Pac-12 and Big 12 presidents meet. Big Ten presidents meet tonight for a final vote, per @Graham_Couch…..

    Others: ACC has scheduled meeting Wednesday, and SEC presidents, as we reported, are meeting today but no vote expected.

    Let this be your first signal that the Big Ten isn’t going to dictate the SEC’s timeline.

    Best advice I’ve received since COVID-19: “Be patient. Take time when making decisions. This is all new & you’ll gain better information each day.” @SEC has been deliberate at each step since March…slowed return to practice…delayed 1st game to respect start of fall semester..

    This from SEC Commissioner
    @GregSankey

    The scientists kept telling him the same thing. Use all the time you have to make decisions. The SEC is not scheduled to play football until Sept. 26. The Big Ten starts Sept. 3. Big difference.

    The decision does not have to be made now.
