Every college football fan knows that the start of the season is not the day toe hits leather on their beloved campus. The season starts at conference media days. And in the south, SEC media days has taken on a celebrity all of its own. A four day extravaganza that takes the nations most powerful football coaches and parades them through over 1200 media members. And after taking a two year hiatus from SEC media days I found myself back in the eye of a storm that converges yearly on Birmingham, Alabama.
My job was simple, 20-minute interviews with 8 conference coaches previewing the upcoming season. And I also had the pleasure of meeting numerous individuals from print, radio, and local television to talk about the conference and the launch of SEC Network. It definitely felt good to be home!
The team preview shows will air on SEC Network in August!
