SEC Media Days has become a pretty significant spectacle in recent years. Whether that's due to real genuine interest in what these coaches and players have to say, or just people getting twitchy for the season to start, is in the eye of the beholder. As with most things, it's probably a bit of both.

Last year, the biggest show was the media's attempted hazing of Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin, who should have been absolutely terrified of all the horrible things those big bad SEC teams were going to do to his poor Aggies. I can't imagine he'll get the same treatment this year.
