SEC Pre-Media Days News, Notes And Nuggets

Congratulations!  You have survived the month-and-a-half of summertime non-news and have reached the official kickoff day of the 2009 SEC football season.



We’re going to be bringing you the school-by-school headlines from around the conference first thing today… and then we’ll begin our constant updates from SEC Media Days.

If ever there was a day to sign up for our Twitter feed, it’s today.  If news breaks, you won’t have to search the web to find it… we’ll bring it to you right here.

It should be a fun three days.

To begin our coverage today, here’s a morning catch-all of some of the bigger stories across the SEC:

Fox Sports South, Sun Sports and Fox Sports Southwest are launching a weekly, one-hour studio show dedicated to the SEC that will feature Randy Cross, Charles Davis and David Pollack.  The show will be called “SEC Gridiron Live” and will air Wednesday’s at 10pm ET.

The line-up for Media Days today will feature Arkansas and Vanderbilt from 1-3pm ET followed by Kentucky and Mississippi State from 3-5pm ET.  ESPNU will show most of the press conferences on their air beginning at 1pm ET.

Chris Low of ESPN.com caught up with Dan Mullen to discuss the ins and outs of running the spread offense in the SEC. 

Then he checked in with South Carolina assistant Ellis Johnson to discuss how SEC teams defend the spread.

And Tony Barnhart of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution writes that the only league that can slow down the SEC is… SEC.

UPDATE — In case you missed it, the SEC announced yesterday that the syndicated regional football and basketball games handled by ESPN but airing on local affiliates will be branded as “The SEC Network.”  (As opposed to the JP or Raycom network as in past years.)
