With the Southeastern Conference growing, one thing we failed to think about was this: SEC Media Days — which has become a fan festival in recent years — will be growing, too.
Great. Instead of 12 coaches, there will be 14 speaking this July. And players? You could no longer fit ‘em all on a Greyhound bus.
Here’s the schedule:
Tuesday, July 17th
1st Session: South Carolina and Texas A&M
2nd Session: Missouri and Vanderbilt
Wednesday, July 18th
1st Session: Florida and Mississippi State
2nd Session: Arkansas and Kentucky
3rd Session: Auburn and LSU
Thursday, July 19th
1st Session: Alabama and Tennessee
2nd Session: Ole Miss and Georgia
The league two new partners get their official, eye-opening welcome to the SEC on Day One.
Day Two will be an absolute bear. With more fans and more media at the event, coaches have fallen farther and farther behind schedule the last couple of summers. Tossing two more schools into that mix could stretch Wednesday’s gathering from dawn to dusk.
Day Three used to end at lunch. Now it’s scheduled to roll all the way through 1:30 — which likely means 2:30 in reality.
The league is growing. Shoulda realized that Media Days would grow with it.
