Media Days Week

Conferences around the country and most importantly in the south will hold the annual preseason ritual known as media days. This week the SWAC and SEC will hold Media Days in Birmingham. In case you haven’t heard the schedule:

Wednesday features Arkansas with Houston Nutt and Heisman hopeful Darren McFadden with South Carolina and Steve Spurrier as well as Auburn’s Tommy Tuberville and Kentucky’s Rich Brooks.

Thursday brings Vandy, Alabama, Florida and Miss. State. Friday brings Georgia, Ole Miss, Tennessee and LSU. I’m debating if I should care about media days. I suppose I should since it means football season is just that much closer.

Almost.
