We'll keep adding to this list of head coach rundowns as we venture through the four-day event, with a new batch every day.

NCAA investigating SI's Oklahoma State story


Remember that five-part story on Oklahoma State football from 2013? This one? The highly hyped one with all the money and sex and drugs and so forth that kind of fizzled out as it went? The NCAA's...

Bama Ring Head Man is already here


So...this guy at SEC Media Days... pic.twitter.com/fz1ISnGlAF — Justin King (@JustinKing224) July 14, 2014 This gent makes the rounds at SEC Media Days every year, as do billions (or so)...

Way to go, Florida State.

SEC Media Days EXCITEMENT Rankings

July 14 through 17 in Hoover, Alabama, SEC head coaches and selected athletes will gather to answer question from billions of media members. One word we definitely know they'll use is "excited."

Texas realignment is CFB's LeBron analogy

A few years ago, the Longhorns had to choose between the familiar Heartland and the bright lights of the coast. The rest of the sport frantically waited.

Follow The Opening/Elite 11 right here


Tweets from https://twitter.com/SBNRecruiting/lists/elite-11-opening-2014 You know all about the year's biggest recruiting event and why it matters. You know when it's on TV*. But in case you...

Jet records: 66 Bama recruit flights in 2 months

And every other college football coaching staff did about the same thing, in one vehicle or another.

The 5 who miss their long-lost rivals the most

According to the internet. Power-conference rivalries that were split up by realignment only, please. And football rivalries only, please. So no Syracuse rivalries or what have you.

5-star Texas LB breaks out 4.39 40-yard dash

The star outside linebacker has elite speed ... for a wide receiver.

Charlie Weis marvels at crowd of *dozens*

There are seven billion people on earth, and several of them are in Arrowhead Stadium *at the same time*.

SB Nation *finally* mentioned in O'Bannon trial


We collected these tweeted photos of Alabama's new hall of football, which the plaintiffs argue helps show there's plenty of money to go around in college sports. Not exactly the deepest analysis we've ever done, but we made it in. (And if EA Sports hadn't settled, bet this would've made it in, too.)

Here is a joke with 3 different punchlines


That's SEC executive associate commissioner Greg Sankey testifying in federal court that programs in his conference would (1.) yield a major recruiting advantage to other conferences and (2.) signal to their fans that twentieth-century amateurism is more important than winning football games. And (3.) go about business as if SEC players are all currently unpaid. There might be more punchlines here, but those are the first three.

10 conferences. Ranked.

Map: 2015 blue-chip quarterbacks

It's a down year for quarterback prospects east of the Mississippi River, but Southern California is loaded.

Player jerseys used as NCAA-O'Bannon evidence

Many football programs sell jerseys with numbers that *just happen to match* those of current star players. This is the NCAA's problem.

The 100 Wins in 11 Seasons Club

We figure 2015 high school prospects first became aware of sports and which teams were winning a lot around first grade or so, which would've been 2003 for most.

Emmert 'uncomfortable' with current commercialism


The NCAA president testified that having players near corporate logos isn't against the rules, but didn't give it his personal support.
