This is what used to be the first day of SEC Media Days, back when it was a three-day event. But then the SEC went to 14 teams, which meant six teams had to go on one day, and everyone wanted to kill each other by the time that day was over. So now it's Day Two. Here's the schedule. You can follow along on the SEC Network or WatchESPN. All times listed are for the main room, which is where the network will broadcast from.
9:30 a.m. ET: Steve Shaw
The head of SEC officiating takes the podium to explain rules changes for the year, half of which will probably confuse everyone listening. (That actually explains so much about SEC officiating, now that I think about it.) No, he will not explain why the referees cost your team a game with that terrible call.
10:05 a.m. ET: South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier
Always one of the main attractions in Hoover, though he might be a bit chastened by what happened last year. Spurrier has said before that he feels like he has to win to do some of his trademark talkin' -- so the 2014 season limits his list of targets. But he still has some. Expect something along the lines of: "Weeeeelp, we didn't have a very good year, this that and the other, but we beat Georgia and Florida, so I guess we did okay there."
11:35 a.m. ET: Texas A&M head coach Kevin Sumlin
Viewer discretion is advised. Sumlin is known for the salty language he sprinkles through his SEC Media Days remarks, as well as for letting you know in no uncertain terms if he thinks your question is stupid. The bulk of the questions will likely focus on John Chavis and whether anyone else at A&M knows how to spell the word "defense."
2 p.m. ET: Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen
Dan Mullen is very excited to tell you how excited he is to be at an exciting event like SEC Media Days. It's really exciting. He's also excited about making sure that he refers to Ole Miss as "the school up north." Mississippi State is slotted to be this year's surprise team possibly headed for a fall that many of the sportswriters will probably ignore. So he'll get asked about how great last season was, and everyone will just ignore the elephant in the room.
3:30 p.m. ET: Tennessee head coach Butch Jones
The magic word here is "expectations." Because everyone expects Tennessee to make a move in the SEC East standings this year -- second place? winning the thing? -- the reporters will probably ask Jones what he thinks about playing with expectations, or something like that.
