SEC Media Days' best quotes, 2013 edition: Cracks in the coachspeak armor


Steve Spurrier, Les Miles, and Bret Bielema spoke at the same event? Oh yeah, there were quotes. This is gonna take a moment to load.

The job of the SEC football coach or player at SEC Media Days: say nothing that could ever be used against you in a court of law or before a football game.

Often, this means nobody says anything at all. No one remembers a single thing said by Gary Pinkel, Mark Stoops, or Butch Jones this week, and that's fine. The event was survived, and the locals are happy their guys looked well-dressed on camera.

But the event still has more than its share of memorable quotes from the podium. Below, some of the finest moments from the closest thing we have to a college football season countdown celebration.
