SEC Media Days Takes The Stage

There are two sure signs that football is just around the corner. The first is in June when the preseason magazines hit the stands. The second is the start of SEC Media Days in Birmingham.

Today we get a little bit closer to kickoff with the start of the three-day media event. Auburn coach Tommy Tuberville will be in front of the media on Friday starting at 8:40 am CST. As is custom, he'll be taking along two seniors with him, wide receiver Courtney Taylor and linebacker Will Herring.

You can bet most of the questions will center around the Sociology Department story. Coach Tuberville has done an excellent job of handling it so far and I expect the same on Friday.

Alabama coach Mike Shula was a guest on the Colin Cowherd radio show (ESPN Radio) Thursday morning and was asked point blank about the situation at Auburn. I don't give props to the Alabama coach often, but I have to give him credit. He stayed away from it despite Cowherd's prodding. Cowherd seemed to be having fun with the Auburn story.

Cowherd's producer, simply known as Compass on the show is an Auburn graduate and keeps Cowherd straight on the Tigers. Two weeks ago Paul Finebaum was a guest on the show and was asked if Auburn cheats. Finebaum's answer was, "without question, yes." This guy gets more and more slimy by the day. He'll say anything to make a buck.

Anyway, didn't mean to get off on a rant. Here's this week's SEC Media Days schedule...

Alabama's Mike Shula
Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson
Georgia's Mark Richt
Kentucky's Rich Brooks

Mississippi's Ed Orgeron
Tennessee's Phil Fulmer (If he shows up)
Arkansas' Houston Nutt
South Carolina's Steve Spurrier

Auburn's Tommy Tuberville
LSU's Les Miles
Florida's Urban Meyer
Mississippi State's Sylvester Croom
