2012 SEC Media Days: Live Blogging the New Guy, Kevin Sumlin

1:37 p.m. CT: Done. Still on time

1:35 p.m. CT: Would rather have Arkansas game home-and-home. Thinks Eric Hyman is a "home run."

1:29 p.m. CT: Sumlin is brushing off Les Miles' welcome comment. WE COME TO SEC MEDIA DAYS FOR WAR, COACH

1:23 p.m. CT: "My realistic expectations are to win."

1:18 p.m. CT: "What's my assessment? It's a pretty damn hard league."

1:16 p.m. CT: On LSU / Thanksgiving game talk: "One thing I've learned is I really don't have anything to do with scheduling so far." Confirms East division rival will be South Carolina.

1:15 p.m. CT: Kevin Sumlin is not as boring as Bobby Petrino pre-motorcycle accident. But he's close.

1:09 p.m. CT: Kevin Sumlin is not a fan of eliminating the kickoff. Yes, that was a question that a reporter asked.

1:06 p.m. CT: "We'll name a starter a couple of weeks at the latest ahead of the Louisiana Tech game."

1:02 p.m. CT: Sumlin is done in about three minutes. Rookie mistake. Now he's going to get a lot of questions.

1:01 p.m. CT: "It's going to be a difficult -- but exciting -- year."
