The madness that is SEC Media Days begins today in Hoover, Alabama. Today’s schedule leads off with Nick Saban and defending SEC and National Champion Alabama taking the podium. That will happen at 1:00 this afternoon.
Of course the Crimson Tide are the latest to be implicated in the NCAA investigation into football players ties to a sports agent. We will see how the “Nicktator” responds to questions about star defensive lineman Marcel Dareus and his alleged ties to what must have been a killer party that was thrown in Miami earlier this summer.
It is the same shindig USC tight end Weslye Saunders allegedly attended in South Beach.
Representatives from Mississippi State, Florida and Kentucky will also meet with the media today in Hoover.
Steve Spurrier and his Gamecocks will take their turn at the podium Thursday morning. Arkansas, Georgia, and Vanderbilt will also be featured in tomorrow’s group.
Friday Auburn, Tennessee, LSU and Ole Miss will make the rounds.
Phil Kornblut has set up shop in Hoover for the rest of the week and we will have complete coverage of anything and everything that goes on at the never dull SEC Media Days.
