SEC Media Days kick off in Ala.
There’s plenty of issues to discuss in t he Southeastern Conference.
The league opens its annual media days — four days instead of three now — on Monday in Hoover, Alabama with radical change in the college athletic model appearing imminent and the SEC Network soon to take the airwaves.
Football will also be on the agenda, of course; Florida State ended the SEC’s seven-year run of national titles by beating Auburn. Six SEC teams will be led by new starting quarterbacks after an exodus that included big names like Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel, Alabama’s AJ McCarron and Georgia’s Aaron Murray.
SEC Commissioner Mike Slive opens with his annual address. Auburn’s Gus Malzahn, whose Tigers matched the biggest one-season turnaround in college football during his debut, will be the first coach to address the media. The SEC issued about 1,100 credentials for the event in suburban Birmingham.
