I know things have been pretty busy lately with softball doing its thing in the WCWS and baseball getting started up in the CWS, but I still dont know how this has slipped past here.
School presidents and chancellors voted Friday to eliminate divisions in men's basketball and to reduce the annual signing classes in football to 28 players. SEC football coaches voted unanimously to keep the number at 28.
Also, SEC Basketball made a pretty drastic change that only serves to improve the conference going forward:
The league, which will hand out an SEC-record $18.3 million in shared revenue to each of its 12 schools, also voted to eliminate divisions in men's basketball. The teams will now be seeded 1 through 12 in the postseason tournament, with the top four teams receiving first-round byes. The SEC will keep a 16-game league slate for 2011-12, but will increase the number of conference games the following season.
